Event:

Louis Vuitton Classic, Serenissima Run 2012

Award:

Class winner: “Coach builders, Golden Age”

Event Description:

The Serenissima was the seventh classic rally to be staged by Louis Vuitton since the legendary luxury goods house sought to enhance its ties with the 'art of travel' by organising the Vintage Equator Run from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur in 1993. Others have included the China Run in 1998 and the Boheme Run – from Budapest to Prague via Vienna – in 1996.

These are not events which one 'enters' as such, but to which one is 'invited'; in other words, if the car's not of blue chip status, forget it!

The selection process is carried out by classic car doyen Christian Philippsen, who is best known for his work as a judge at top concours shows including Pebble Beach, the Cavallino Classic, Amelia Island and Schloss Bensberg.

The route, meanwhile, is devised by French racing driver and triple Paris-Dakar winner René Metge, who mapped out a breathtaking 1,400-kilometre drive which started at the Monaco Yacht Club and ended up in Venice by way of the Italian lakes Maggiore, Como and Garda.
