AN UNMISSABLE COMMUNICATION TOOL FOR THE TERRITORY
AND AN IMPORTANT ECONOMIC INDUCT
The organizational staff of Aci Livorno Sport, together with the Elban community, therefore proposes a new chapter in the history of what is rightly defined as the essence of road racing, having everything available from a unique territory.
The summer season on the Island of Elba ideally ends and the race is confirmed as a "must" on the international scene: "With mind-boggling numbers - argues Luciano Fiori, president of ACI Livorno Sport - which confirms our competition as one of the the most coveted to participate because it combines sport and holidays, sport and territory, generating an induced amount of about 5 million euros, with the incoming that is generated. We are facing an important example of how sport and the territory can generate image, communication and strong input to the tourism economy. There are few rallies in the world that are known even to those who do not know about motorsport and one of these is the Rallye Elba. More than a race, a brand, a name, an indelible "signature". The success from year to year is thanks to many factors: as organizers we would like to thank those who run, who every year gratifies us with their presence, the Italian and international Federation for the trust they always place in our work, it is our duty to thank all the partners who have supported us for a long time, first of all Locman Italy, a company born in Elba and that loves Elba, a love beyond measure. Then it is our duty to thank all the administrations of the island, the entire Elban community, the economic operators who welcome the rally with an enthusiasm that has never been scratched over the years and which has always been the propellant to move forward. I hope those who may be disturbed by the event during the race days will forgive us, we apologize to them and also ask for a little effort to endure. Because the Rallye Elba belongs to everyone, in the end! "
This year, in its renewed success, it will also be an edition of the memory. That of Elio Niccolai, the "father" of the race, who suddenly passed away on May 14th. He was the founding pillar of the event intended as such for the island, as well as the cornerstone of ACI Livorno. From this edition onwards, both the "modern" and the historical competition will go on strengthened by the teachings that Niccolai has given over the years, a priceless heritage that is now well in the hand, in the heart and in the mind of those who have collected the inheritance. : Aci Livorno and Aci Livorno Sport.
THE PATH: IT COMES FROM TRADITION WITH SOME CHANGES
The Rallye Elba Storico is one of the best known Italian races in the world, which is why every year ACI Livorno Sport always works with commitment to give new stimuli and encourage the participation of drivers and teams. Three days of challenges have been conceived again, with a total of 9 Special Stages, "historic" routes, which have seen exciting and epic sporting feats on more than one occasion.
The course, of course, is derived from tradition, for this year special stages have been taken from the 2020 and 2019 editions, a mix certainly of indisputable technical value. For the first stage we have chosen to travel the streets in the eastern part of the island, for the second we will focus on the central-western area, therefore around the famous "Monte Perone", a choice certainly inspired to make the sporting comparison fascinating and compelling. but also and above all so as not to be too invasive with the territory and not to give difficulties to the daily life of the territory.
The Rallye has 133,350 competitive kilometers, which is 30.04% of the entire distance which is 443,940.
CAPOLIVERI WILL BE THE HEART OF THE RACE FOR THE TENTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
From 2011 the general logistics passed to Capoliveri, finding a functional and extremely exclusive location and strong of these assumptions ACI Livorno Sport designed the 2021 edition with nothing changed as regards the logistics: the Headquarters of the event is confirmed, in Capoliveri , at the functional and exclusive facilities of the Hotel Elba International, an exclusive location overlooking the Gulf of Porto Azzurro, where the Race Direction, the Secretariat and the Press Room will be organized. The Assistance Park area will also be organized in Porto Azzurro.
As usual, this year's edition was designed for the entire island, to give value to the territory but above all "for the territory", of which it favors the image, communication and also the economic impact with emotional tourism, the one brought to the Island by the event itself. The times of each end of the stage have been studied again in order to make the island of Elba and its beauties live more and more to the competitors, in such a way as to tangibly combine sport and tourism, taking advantage of the pleasant - and still long - September days.
