We start from the Grandhotel Lienz over the Stallersattel to South Tyrol. We drive over the Dolomites to Bozen, where we spend the first night.
Sunday, September 10th
For me, the Gavia is the most impressive pass of the Tour Grande 2023. Narrow, steep and dark, it winds its way up to 2,621 m. We can then fill up the trunks in the duty-free zone of Livigno. But be careful, there are frequently controls when you leave the country.
Monday, September 11th
Via the glacier-lined Bernina Pass we come to St.Moritz. And our path continues to lead us to the northern Italian lakes of Como, Lugano and Lago Maggiore.
Tuesday, September 12th
Today is a rest day, the shores of Lake Maggiore invite you to relax.
Wednesday, September 13th
Today we take advantage of the fact that tourism has not discovered the area west of Lake Maggiore yet. We continue through the Aosta Valley to Courmayeur.
Thursday, September 14th
Sky striker – that is the appropriate description for the participants today. Via Val d’Isere we drive over the Col De l’Iseran. At 2,770 m, it is the highest pass in the Alps.
Friday, September 15th
At 2,802 m, the Cime de la Bonette clearly surpasses it, but that’s a dead end road, not a pass. Anyway, we’re going up today. True to the traditional route of the Monte Carlo Rally, we reach Monaco via the Col de Turini.
And at the award ceremony in the evening at the Hotel Fairmont in Monte Carlo we will pay respect to the three best teams of each class.
It’s not just the landscape and roads that make the Tour Grande fun. Around 35 exciting special stages (timing tests with visible measuring points) ensure that the excitement is maintained throughout the whole event.
The Tour Grande is not about being the fastest; the safety of the participants and other road users has always priority!
