THE HISTORY

Just over 17 km, 1350 meters altitude, turns, straights, hairpins, lots of hairpins ...
Defined by most as "The Hill-Climb University", the
Trento/Bondone has great history and palmarés.

The 2012 edition is No. #62, but the Trento/Bondone history begins well before 62 years ago.

It is July 5, 1925 when 16 motorcycles, two motor bikes and 11 cars take in Trent for what at the time was defined as a "trip timed for cars and motorcycles ". For history mention, the first winner was the eng. Ruggero Menestrina who crossed the finish line place in Vaneze locations in 21'57'', with average speed of 35.352 km/h. These were pioneering and roaring era, the event was a great success and was repeated over the years. In 1927 the participation was expanded nationwide and even two races were held, one in June and another in September. But the fourth issue, in 1928, recorded a drop in subscribers and the Trento/Bondone was suspended for almost ten years, from 1929 to 1937. It will still be the Automobile Club of Trento to "revisit" the idea, with the organization of the '38 and '39 editions. Two other hits, before the new pause caused by World War II.

The 1950 sees the "revival" of motorsport in Trentino region, with the organization of the "Stella Alpina", automotive event of "fast touring" (as it was called then) comprising a series of stages which the Trento/Bondone represented the final, binding, conclusive race. From 1951 to 1955 the race is split again with the dispute of two annual issues, with the particularity of the transfer of the track in the Folgaria edition of '53, because of the temporary impracticability of the Bondone road.

Since 1958 the Trento/Bondone enters the Olympus of classic international motor races, with the European Hill-Climb Championship titolation. It's a boom of investments from all over the continent, with the direct involvement and official of the largest car manufacturers of the era: Porsche, Ferrari, Bogward, Abarth, March BMW, Lola BMW, just to name a few. The "Hall of Fame" began recording drivers "provided" by Formula 1 and Endurance races like Von Trips, Govoni, Scarfiotti, Schetty and other famous names in Italian motorsport as the local Zadra and Carlo Facetti.

The '70s saw the arrival of the formula race cars to support the traditional two-seater "barchetta". But changing weather conditions of the area affected by the Trento/Bondone will continue to benefit for a long time, the "covered" cars. In 1973 the Tuscan Mauro Nesti stands out with its March. It is the beginning of the legend. New win in 1975 and uninterrupted monopoly of Nesti to the #1st step of the podium until 1981.

After this latest Nesti's victory, the seventh, the Trento/Bondone start another few years stop, officially motivated by "security reasons".

It's the 1988 to mark the resumption and report on the international views the Trento/Bondone, with two consecutive victories of the Friuli's driver Romano Casasola, the first in 1988 on a shortened path, and the second in 1989, on the "long" track layout. But with a last double-win in 1990 and 1993, Mauro Nesti tag his score of 9 gold medals on Bondone. Record still unbeaten.

Mauro Nesti then undisputed "Bondone's King" with 9 victories, later in this special "ranking" by Apulian Pasquale Irlando with 6 wins. The German Edgar Barth, star of the '60s, is the third step of this "virtual" podium and shares 3 victories with the current track record holder: Simone Faggioli.

Just off the podium a list of top names, with 2 victories apiece. Romano Casasola shares a double success with the "pioneers" Gerhard Mitter, Ludovico Scarfiotti, Mario Tomasi and Salvatore Ammendola. Double success in the "modern" era also for Franz Tschager, Franco Cinelli and for never forgotten Lionel Regal.
