- Catch the classic car action of the Milano-Senremo Cup

February 12, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News highlights booking Milan hotels may be a good idea for any classic car fans if they want to catch one upcoming event.

The Milano-Senremo Cup will be taking place for the eighth time from Friday March 12th to Sunday 14th March 2010.

This historic three-day spectacle invites people to register their vehicles and show them off to visitors and fellow drivers before battling it out to lift the trophy at the end.

On the first day of the event, the cars are checked at the world famous Autodromo Nazionale di Monza racetrack before taking part in a parade to Piazza del Duomo where they go on display before the race itself.

The action then kicks off the next day when the motors depart from Milan bright and early at 08:00 local time.

They make their way towards Pavese and Lomellina before travelling through Imperia and arriving at their destination of Sanremo when the sun sets.

For those who do not have their own classic car to drive, it is free to go along and enjoy the race.

Surrounded by the beautiful Italian countryside near Milan, it could be the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

The racetrack at Monza was created in 1922 and is about a half hour drive from Milan.

Commenting on the Milano-Senremo Cup, Jessica Reading, head of marketing for LateRooms, said: "We strongly urge people thinking of going to the Milano-Senremo Cup and who need hotel Milano to book early to avoid disappointment"
