Eberhard & Co. Eberhard & Co. rewards the winners of the 2021 Winter Marathon
The 2021 edition of the Winter Marathon has crossed the finishing line!
In a unique winter environment, the historic car race saw 88 pilots (chiefly from Italy) negotiate hairpin bends and climb mountain passes at above 2,000 m altitude, as they vied for victory in the 65 time trials of the long-established regularity rally in the Italian ski resort of Madonna di Campiglio.
Once again, Eberhard & Co. has associated itself with this major winter vintage sports car race as Main Sponsor and Official Timekeeper. Eberhard & Co. also competed in the race, fielding a special team consisting of two-times world rally champion Miki Biasion, Brand Ambassador of Eberhard & Co., driving a 1968 Alfa Romeo GT 1750 Veloce with his wife Paola Ramella Paia as navigator, a team that provided that extra edge of excitement that is always a feature of high-altitude conditions.

The freezing, below-average temperatures and the exceptional snowfalls of the last few weeks were not enough to stop Edoardo Bellini and Roberto Tiberti, driving a 1937 Fiat 508 C, from winning by a considerable margin the Winter Marathon’s 33rd edition.
The drivers battled it out along a course of over 500 km on the most spectacular roads of the Trentino-Alto Adige region, competing in the two-stage regularity race (open to cars built up to 1968 and to vehicles of special historic and collector interest produced until 1976) while enjoying a unique picture-postcard landscape blanketed by snow.
The Dolomites’ stunning vistas framed the performance of Alberto Aliverti and Stefano Valente, who finished in second place driving a 1937 Fiat 508 C, followed in third place by Fabio and Marco Salvinelli driving a 1954 Fiat 1100/103.

The spectacular Eberhard Frozen Lake Trophy, a knock-out challenge among the top 32 finishers contested on the ice of Madonna di Campiglio’s frozen lake, went to Massimo Bisi and Claudio Cattivelli driving a 1963 Porsche 365 B Coupé, who triumphed over their opponents, leaving the runner-up spot to Alberto Aliverti and Stefano Valente driving a 1937 Fiat 508 C, while Ezio Sala and Gianluca Cioffi driving a 1937 Lancia Aprilia finished third.
Eberhard & Co. awarded a chronograph from the Tazio Nuvolari collection to the Eberhard Trophy's winning team, and two chronographs from the Champion V collection to the race’s outright winners. Miki Biasion, Brand Ambassador of Eberhard & Co., crowned the winners at the prize-giving ceremony.
