Last weekend was the 13th Cronoscalata and it was a fun event. On the Saturday morning we went and looked at all the cars that were going to be participating in the race. As you can imagine I took simply loads of photos as we strolled along the lake shore looking at the cars, everything from Fiat 500's to impressive looking racing cars.
I have reproduced most of the photos here as mini-photos, but if you want to see them in their individual glory, please take a look at my album Cronoscalata Montefiascone 2010 on Flickr.com.
Mini-Photos of Cronoscalata Entrants Saturday 19th June 2010
On the Sunday morning the weather did not get off to an auspicious start with heavy rain. We wondered if we were actually going to be able to go and watch without getting soaked! Fortunately by mid morning it had stopped raining and although the weather remained rather threatening we did need the umbrellas we took with us. We positioned ourselves near the start of the race, where I was surprised how close we were actually able to get to the cars! Anyway we had an excellent position from which to watch the cars set off on their ascent of the zig zag hill that is used for the race. Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera on Sunday morning so this second collection of photos are ones taken with my camera phone.

This video is a great presentation of this years event from YouTube. Personally I found the music chosen was not to my taste, so remember you can always view with the speaker volume off. I think some of it must have been filmed on the Saturday afternoon or early Sunday morning by the evidence of the umbrellas!

For any enthusiasts amongst you I have also included a couple of videos of the two previous years events that I found on YouTube.
