Gran Premio Nuvolari - Premio Mantova 2023 partecipate at Techno Classica Essen, halle 5 – stand 501


Mantova, 11th of April 2023 - Scuderia Mantova Corse will be the protagonist with its own stand (Halle 5 - Stand  501) at Techno Classica Essen, the most important world showcase for collector cars, to present to the international  press the 33rd edition of the Gran Premio Nuvolari, the most known to the world reserved for historic cars, scheduled from 14 to 17 September 2023.
Along the renewed route, the competitors will compete in timed trials, average tests, roads and breath taking  landscapes, supported by the enthusiasm of thousands of fans and enthusiasts through some of the most  fascinating and historic squares in Italy.

The 300 crews from all over the world will face a 1.100 km route this year, divided into three stages, through the  most beautiful landscapes of Northern and Central Italy, passing through Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, Marche,  Umbria and Tuscany.

The event, conceived and organized by Mantova Corse since 1991, will take place in compliance with the F.I.A,  F.I.V.A. and A.C.I. Sport, with particular attention to the safety protocols required by national and international  sports federations.

The Gran Premio Nuvolari is not only a celebration of the myth of the "Mantovano Volante", but also a historical re enactment and cultural showcase of engineering masterpieces: marvels on four wheels which, thanks to their  unique silhouettes and ingenious mechanics, have entered the collective imagination national and international.

The consolidated event, which boasts already consolidated partnerships such as Red Bull, Finservice Group and  Banca Generali, sees the entry of the auction house Wannenes (official partner), Penske Cars (automotive partner)  and Locman (official timekeeper). Considered one of the most awaited events of the season, the Gran Premio Nuvolari will offer its competitors an exciting and unique experience, with the intention of combining the pleasure  of discovering exclusive, fascinating and evocative places with a high-level sporting competition.

For the fourth consecutive year, the GPN Green will be organized: an initiative with a high rate of greening. The  environmental impact caused by the circulation of the cars participating in the event will be compensated by the  planting, in selected areas, of such a number of tall trees as to balance the total CO2 emission. 

Appointment therefore for all enthusiasts in Piazza Sordello in Mantova at 11:00 on Friday 15th of September, for  the start of the Gran Premio Nuvolari 2023. 

The 2023 route  

The route of the Gran Premio Nuvolari represents the synthesis of many Italian excellences.

It will be the City's  greeting reserved for participants from all over the world. 

On Friday 15th of September the 300 cars will leave, as per tradition, from the historic Piazza Sordello, the heart of  the Lombard city.
