All in a track that caresses the two shores of Lake Como with some of the most unique and rare wiews of the lake, full of twists, bends and turns to make your head spin. Always following the rules of the road ...

Thirty cars took part in the rally on Sunday. The path went between the lake and valley starting from Abbadia Lariana and arriving at Barzio after going through all the Valsassina valley. 

Old but spicy cars facing a gloomy day and accompanied by a lot of rain. The daring mini drivers were not intimidated by the weather and reached the traditional appointment with the Girinmini, a gathering of fans of the Mini Cooper for the second consecutive year, chose the Valley as a destination and route. Thirty cars present, who went along with about fifty fans.

Once arrived at Barzio, a parking transformed in a mini-gymkhana circuit was waiting for the challengers, a test of slalom where the Mini proved their proverbial agility and maneuverability.

The "Airstrip Race"

New for 2012 is an event organized by Maiali da Corsa, made possible after one of our recognitions took place precisely to find new ideas.

We stumbled on a beautiful stretch of asphalt well hidden from prying eyes in nature, which serves as the runway for gliding and recreational sports.

The Program provides 2 "Races" ....

The first stage
Try to slalom between obstacles in time: it develops on a mini circuit designed taking into account our car's proverbial agility. The time is clocked by photocells at the start / finish and the ranking is compiled based on the time and categories.

The second stage
The acceleration test: thanks to this location you can safely drag race through a route of 400 meters with two cars coupled according to the category, and then knockout rounds.
