The Modena Cento Ore, which has become a great international classic over the years, is now in its 20th edition. The peculiarity of this race, reserved for cars produced until 1977 – although there are exceptions as demonstrated by the winner of the 2020 edition – is the possibility to choose between Competition and Regularity rankings. The crews competed on the roads and tracks of central Italy passing through the cities of Rome, Perugia, Florence and Modena, the final stage of the event.

The three contenders for the podium fighting it out at Mugello: the two Porsches of Janssens and Kadoorie compete for first place followed by the very fast Ford Escort driven by Siddall from England

Races on the track, on the circuits of Mugello, Magione and Imola and 11 special stages on uphill roads closed to traffic were the ingredients of the 2020 edition. The route is the same for both Competition and Regularity sections, allowing all drivers to express themselves in complete safety according to their driving skills.

The Competition classification of the Modena Cento Ore classic is based on the results of 3 track and 11 special hill climb stages

The winners of the Competition event were Glenn Janssens and Tom De Geetere in the 1981 Porsche 911 SC, followed by the 1975 Ford Escort RS 1800 driven by Andrew Siddall and Sebastian Perez, in third place was the Porsche Carrera RS driven by Philip Lawrence Kadoorie and Daniel Wells.

As always, the excellent organization was curated by Luigi Orlandini and Canossa Events.
