Winter Marathon 2024, Bellini-Tiberti Win the 36th Edition on Fiat 508 C

Third victory for the young crew, who outperformed their competitors by a wide margin; the podium is completed by two other Fiat 508 C from 1938 with Barcella/Ghidotti in second place and Salvinelli/Costa in third.

The young team from Franciacorta Motori, on the same Fiat 508 C from 1937 with which they won in 2021 and 2022, maintained their lead in the race after the first stage on Thursday and triumphed in the night at Madonna di Campiglio, where they crossed the finish line at Piazza Righi with a considerable lead over their immediate pursuers, both on Fiat 508 C from 1938: Guido Barcella and Ombretta Ghidotti, last year’s winners, who, after a difficult first stage, climbed from seventh to second place, and Fabio Salvinelli and Andrea Costa, who finished in third place after being in second place for a long time.

The organizers are satisfied with the overall progress of the race, which ended without any issues or accidents with the help of service personnel along the entire route and characterized by extreme cold, reaching as low as -15°C on the Sella and Gardena passes, as always along with the Pordoi pass among the most appreciated and photographed points.

In first place among entirely foreign crews are the Englishmen Edoardo Ottochian and George Drayson on an Austin Mini Cooper S Mk I from 1960, while among the Teams, success went to Franciacorta Motori, followed, in order, by Brescia Corse and Emmebi 70. The top spot in the under 30 crew ranking belongs to the Barcella-Rossoni crew, sixth overall on a Porsche 356 C Coupe from 1963, while the first female crew is formed by Laura Bandera and Chiara Guindani on a Lancia Fulvia Coupe 1.3 S from 1971. The first crew in the special Media Test ranking is composed of the Sardinian crew Virdis-Giordo on a Porsche 356 Coupe from 1954.
