XIV Cronoscalata Lago di Montefiascone - Montefiascone Hill Climb - 2011

 

 

A rather different sort of event from the ones we normally attend and that I post about here, nonetheless just as enjoyable. This year I have made the still photos I took of the cars into a slide show presentation. I present my interpretation of the Cronoscalata for those of you that appreciate cars!

If you would prefer to view the photographs as stills they can be viewed on Flickr.com in my album entitled XIV Cronoscalata Montefiascone 2011

If you have some time to view them these videos produced by a local TV station are very interesting and create a good impression of the event, even if you do not understand the Italian.  On the YouTube page itself you can read the names of some of the participants, there were over 100!

  2. I remember this from last year. I just about managed to get through your slide show with only a few hitches, presumably because there was no sound. Wish I could have been there. I did not even try the two video clips!!! Take care Diane x

  4. Once a year a race with historical cars is held here, and our ONE road gets blocked for many hours. Each year we go to the comune and protest vehemently against the race, but letting those vintage cars drive too fast on our road seems more important than allowing the residents to get on with their life. Next year, I shall suggest that they move it Montefiascone :)

  7. Let me try again, posted too soon. Looks like it was fun, a lot of interesting cars. I will show the videos to my wife tonight. Francesca, I understand what you are saying, and if the race was held in my neighborhood, it would be very disruptive. Some cool cars though.

  8. That looks like a lot of fun. It's good to mix things up every once in awhile. I usually go to the Western Stock Show when it's in town, even though I'm no cowgirl.

  12. Having problems with links and probably my settings, not yours. Just dropped by to say 'hello'. The race looks interesting - the sort of thing that interests my husband and brothers-in-law!
