"We are working for a new edition full of spectacularity, breathtaking scenery and promotion of the territory with a 130 km route inside the Pollino National Park". The characteristics of the ninth edition of the Felice Nazzaro Circuit, a fixed appointment for enthusiasts from the south and beyond of 'Regularity Historic Cars' conceived by the Asd Historic Club Castrovillari, ACI Historic Club since 2020, is all encapsulated in the words of president Domenico Campilongo.
After the important recognition of the national titling of the event as National Trophy Historic Car Regularity 2023, the staff of the Castrovillari association is working to build a route that skillfully combines engines and territory. The race scheduled for 24 June will feature a new route with wonderful landscapes and spectacular roads through the heart of the Pollino National Park. Approximately 130 km between the municipalities of the province of Cosenza with evocative passages and time trials on the plains of Novacco, Campotenese and at Lake Pantano di Mormanno, touching an altitude of about 1350.
The Felice Nazzaro 2023 Circuit enhances the road taken by the association in recent years: to enhance the tourist-cultural identity of the territory through the passion for historic cars. The two-day event will feature shows, guided tours, dinners and lunches based on typical local products, tastings, and guided tours of historic centres.
The success of the last edition held had registered the presence of about 70 crews, with the presence of Top Drivers Giovanni Moceri, Angelo Accardo and Pino Maccario, who enriched the fleet of competitors. This year, there will be the possibility to participate in the Trofeo Nazionale Regolarità Autostoriche (National Trophy for Vintage Car Regularity) and challenge the many national drivers who will participate, or register for the Regolarita Turistica, with a reduced itinerary and a smaller number of stages than in the Trofeo.
The organisational centre of the event will be Castrovillari, headquarters of the club and logistical base of the organisation, where part of the competitors will arrive from Saturday 24 June, for the technical/sports checks (with the possibility of carrying them out also on Sunday morning before the start) and in the evening a convivial dinner based on local products; the start on Sunday 25 June is scheduled at 9.30 a.m., with the participants engaged for the whole day on the beautiful route designed in the Pollino National Park.
