To take place from 12-14 March 2010, the eighth historic commemoration of the Coppa Milano– Sanremo, a classic regularity race,is part of the FIA/CSAI calendar. New route – single stage from Milan to San Remo over a new road – duration three days and two nights, with the finish by the sea at night. The eco-sustainable mission of the event is also confirmed for next year, as well as support for Lifegate’s Impact Zero® project.

The eighth historic commemoration of the Coppa Milano–Sanremo, an event which is part of the official FIA/CSAI calendar, is supported and promoted by the Automobile Club of Milan and organised by the MAC Group, a service agency specialised in the creation, organisation and communication of major events, and it will take place from 12-14 March 2010.The major new feature of the 2010 race is its route: the whole event will take place over a period of three-days and two nights with a single stage from Milan to Sanremo over a new road to be discovered through the hills and reach the finish by the sea all in one day. The race is a classic regularity event with 20 tests of precision and, therefore, it is also open to top drivers, all of whom must be oriented toward touring enthusiasm and have the usual attention to detail. The result is of infinite charm.

The official opening of the Coppa Milano–Sanremo will be on Friday morning 12 March at the Autodrome of Monza with scrutineering and free circuit lapping. Competitors will be able to arrive at the Monza circuit from the Thursday afternoon. The race itself will start, as always, in Milan’s Piazza Duomo and will offer the usual prestigious venue for the parade of the beautiful competing cars presented by Simon Kidston and Savina Confaloni on the Friday afternoon. There is a new feature for the gala dinner: it will be in the sumptuous salons of the Hotel Principe di Savoia in Milan’s Piazza della Repubblica to welcome the competitors. The following day, Saturday 13 March, the cavalcade of cars will wind its way toward Sanremo through the Ligurian-Piedmont Apennines to arrive in Sanremo, the city of flowers, at night. The tests will take place on the Sunday morning at the historic Ospedaletti circuit, equipped ad hoc for the event. In the afternoon, there will be the prize-giving and farewell in Piazza Colombo in the centre of Sanremo. For those who wish to do so, the weekend can continue toward Monte Carlo as an optional extension of the race package.

This year, the Coppa Milano–Sanremo will also adhere to the Lifegate Zero Impact® project and, in compliance with the provisions of the Kyoto Agreement, the CO2 emissions produced by the event will be compensated for with the forestation of green zones at risk.“The MAC Group continues with its objective of reducing the environmental cost of motoring events that it organises”, confirms Sandro Binelli, President of the MAC Group. “The Coppa Milano–Sanremo was the first event of its kind to adhere to this project and I am particularly proud to announce that the previous race has brought to life 51,700 square metres of forest in Costa Rica”.The Coppa Milano–Sanremo is a vintage car race that does not pollute, with zero impact on the environment, designed to reduce CO2 emissions and save on superfluous consumption wherever it is possible.The entry list will close on 31 January 2010.
