MANY NEW FEATURES ON THE 2023 RALLYLEGEND ROUTE. RALLYLEGEND BECOMES A BOOK.
The “Sprint Legend Race” opens on Thursday evening. Friday will see the debut of the “Pirelli Power Stage”, a special stage but also a show event inside the Misano World Circuit. The “I Laghi” and “Piandavello” tracks are modified in part to facilitate the positioning of spectators. “The Legend”, on Saturday and Sunday, is a growing vessel for high-level rallying performance. “Rallylegend 20Venti di passione”: the first twenty editions of an iconic event are presented in a book.
Each year, the aim is to put on a unique sporting show while facilitating, as far as possible, the movements and positioning of the huge, multi-coloured Rallylegend crowd and allowing for the smooth running of the race and related events.
For the 2023 edition, set to take place on 12-15 October, the organisational staff has added many new elements to the schedule and structure of Rallylegend.
Battle will commence on Thursday 12 October with the “Sprint Legend Race”, an exciting taster involving all the registered competitors, with a time “bonus” for the classification. With respect to last year, the 2.2 km route will be linear and not split, with a start time of 8.30pm. The not-to-be-missed show will begin 30 minutes earlier, at 8pm, and feature many of the champions and guests not taking part in the rally, along with some incredible cars.
The schedule on Friday 13 October will begin with the shakedown, on what will be the route for the “I Laghi” special stage, while the 21st Rallylegend will get underway at 6.30pm from the Rally Village, located at the Multieventi Sport Domus in San Marino. There will be three special stages, “I Laghi” will be repeated twice (at 6.49pm and 10.45pm), modified in its final section to incorporate the spectacular The Legend jump, taken in the opposite direction, interposed with the main new feature of the 2023 edition. This is the “Pirelli Power Stage” designed at the Misano World Circuit, a true special stage that includes three laps of the Italian track, on the asphalt, with six internal chicanes positioned along the straights. This stage will get underway at 7.56pm, preceded, at 7.30pm, by exhibition laps featuring the cars of champions and guests. At the end of the stage, all competing cars will break for an hour and a half and convene in the Misano World Circuit Square, where the public will be able to come and see the cars and teams.
The structure of the stage on Saturday 14 remains essentially unchanged with respect to past editions, with “La Casa”, “Le Tane” and “The Legend” to be repeated twice, with the latter preceded by the “Parades”, guest laps, and, as ever, many surprise initiatives to get the crowd going.
The final stage of Rallylegend will play out on Sunday 15 October with the “Piandavello”, modified in its final section to facilitate the positioning of spectators, and “The Legend” that, as on Saturday, will be a real vessel for excitement, adrenaline and performance.
RALLYLEGEND 20VENTI DI PASSIONE: THE FIRST TWENTY EDITIONS OF AN ICONIC EVENT PRESENTED IN A BOOK
A significant goal, an exponential increase in popularity, spectators, passion and adrenaline, all of which has made Rallylegend into one of the world’s most important and highly anticipated rallying events. And so it is well worth documenting the first twenty years of Rallylegend in book form, tracing the path of this iconic show thanks also to some very impactful photography. The idea came from the creators and organisers of Rallylegend, or rather Paolo Valli and Vito Piarulli, while the authors of the book, entitled “Rallylegend 20Venti di passione” are Andrea Cordovani and Leo Todisco Grande. The book is published by Artioli Editore 1899. Printed in a limited number of copies, it will be on sale at Rallylegend Village during the event.
