The 33rd Stella Alpina has come to an end. The regularity rally organised by Scuderia Trentina in partnership with Canossa Events ran from July 6th to 8th this year: three exciting days of driving on the most scenic itineraries in the Dolomites and across the most exhilarating passes in the Italian Alps. For 2018, the Organisers wanted to create a really special event, taking the crews up to the mountain tops along the most spectacular and challenging roads in the Dolomites.

The winning combination of sport, passion, spectacular panoramas, hairpin bends, superb hospitality and breathtaking scenery in the marvellous Dolomites, delighted all those taking part: people who love competing with their cars but appreciate the opportunity to see new places and sample some special food and wine at the same time.  The event was divided into two sections: one reserved for classic cars and another for modern Ferrari’s, with more than seventy crews at the starting line, soaking up the friendly yet competitive atmosphere. This year, the Stella Alpina was part of the new “SuperClassiche” Italian Trophy, promoted by ACI Sport and assigned to just seven of the top regularity rallies in Italy. Along with the Terra di Canossa, it is the Trophy rally with the highest number of applicants.

The Challenge and the Podium
There were 99 challenging timed trials and 6 average speed trials, putting the crews to the test and getting everyone’s pulses racing. All were tough trials, set in stunningly attractive scenery along a 450 km route taking the crews across the most beautiful passes in the Dolomites, The battle to win the rally continued until the last leg was over, in fact the ranking for first and second place changed several times until the final day when the winners were announced during the Awards Ceremony held at Cantine Ferrari.

After battling it out head-to-head, Guido Barcella and Ombretta Ghidotti took the podium of the classic cars in their 1938 Fiat 508C. Second place on the podium went to the AghemConti crew in a 1938 Bmw 328 roadster, and third place went to crew 7 D’Antinone-De Biase in a 1969 Porsche 911.  

The top step on the podium for the modern Ferraris went to Giordano Mozzi and Stefania Biacca in a Ferrari 458 Spider, who were the unrivalled leaders of the ranking from day one, followed by Trifero-Trifero in a Ferrari 456MGT and Carretti-Furlan in a Ferrari 488 Spider.

For the Trofeo Azimut-Stella Alpina, reserved for pre 1957 cars, Barcella-Ghidotti won first prize followed by Aghem-Conti and then Salvinelli Ceccardi in a 1930 Fiat 514 MM.
