The race will start with a grand show on Friday and a special stage at the 'Colosseum.' The race will comprise 13 special stages, including the new 'Alatri' stage and the confirmation of the two long stages, 'Rocca di Cave-Subiaco' and 'Santopadre.'
08.06.2023 - With the publication of the Special Regulations, the final phase of anticipation has begun for the 2023 Rally di Roma Capitale, scheduled from July 28th to July 30th. It will be the sixth round of the FIA European Rally Championship and fifth of the Sparco Italian Rally Championship.
Max Rendina and Motorsport Italia have done a truly remarkable job on the route for this edition, maintaining the excellent sporting qualities of the Rally di Roma Capitale while focusing on the city of Rome and the grand opening event on Friday evening. The collaboration with the Great Events Office and the Great Events, Sport and Tourism Councilor of Roma Capitale Mr. Alessandro Onorato was crucial to obtain this value. This event will not only captivate motorsport enthusiasts but also citizens, families and curious onlookers.
The most highly anticipated moment of the race will take place on Friday, July 28th. After the morning shakedown in Fumone, the cars will descend into the Eternal City for the grand opening ceremony at Castel Sant'Angelo, a parade through the streets of Rome and an exciting special stage at the Colosseum. The Colosseum stage will feature new and interesting elements compared to 2022, aiming to enhance the spectacle in a unique setting just steps away from the Roman Amphitheatre.
The Friday evening will also be filled with side events dedicated to enthusiasts, curious visitors, tourists and families. These events will showcase the glamour and charm of the premier motorsport event of the Roman summer. The involvement of exceptional testimonials, key event partners, and relevant institutions, such as the Lazio Region and Roma Capitale, will contribute to the success of the event.
The rally will then continue in the province of Frosinone with two adrenaline-fueled days on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th, featuring 12 more tests. These include the new 'Alatri' stage, as well as the two extremely long ones, 'Rocca di Cave-Subiaco' (32.30 kilometres) and 'Santopadre' (29.08 kilometres). These stages are among the longest in the European rally scene. The rally will conclude in Fiuggi at 6:00 PM on Sunday, with incredible surprises for enthusiasts and all attendees, which will be revealed very soon.
"Rome will be the great protagonist of this edition, more than ever before. This event will be dedicated not only to motorsport enthusiasts but also to families, tourists and Romans. The Rally di Roma Capitale has grown significantly in these first eleven years. For this first edition of our second decade, we have dedicated ourselves to organizing numerous collateral events and leisure opportunities for everyone. We are the flagship motorsport event of the summer and we want to involve the entire city in what will undoubtedly be an unmissable moment for all."
