Passione Engadina, the international gathering of Italian classic cars, is taking place in St Moritz from August 26th to August 28th, 2022. Now in its eleventh edition, Passione Engadina is to fascinate its participants and its public by dedicating the event to the brand Bugatti, whose founder, Ettore Bugatti, was born in Milan. Unique and unmissable happenings will characterize Passione Engadina 2022, in addition to an eventful program reserved to the participants and to the public crowding the roads of St. Moritz and the Engadin.
In honour of this edition’s Guest Sponsor, from August 13th to August 28th, the Organization will set up the Pavillon Bugatti, inside which the public will have the opportunity to admire a wonderful and complete exhibition of Bugatti classic models and supercars. All this is made possible thanks to the strong partnership between Passione Engadina, Bugatti, the town of St. Moritz and some of the most important world collectors. The Pavillon Bugatti is to represent a real museum in the heart of St. Moritz, which will host some iconic and rare models that will retrace the brand’s history, while other models will be on display in the streets of St. Moritz town centre.
The Ladies’ Cup will be back at Passione Engadina
Many events will follow one another during the three days of Passione Engadina. On Saturday, the Julius Baer Rally will be back with an itinerary twisting and turning between Switzerland and Italy, which will take the crews along mountain roads of extraordinary beauty, through the alpine passes of Bernina, Umbrail and Fuorn, right in this order. On August the 27th, the cars can be admired at the start line in Signalbahn parking at 8.15, and at the rally’s finish line in Via Maistra in St. Moritz, from 15.45 to 17.00. On Sunday morning, the time trials will take place for the first time in St. Moritz city centre, precisely in Via Dal Bagn, an occasion not to be missed.
On the same day, the cars will enthral the public also from 10.30 to 14.00 with an exhibition at the Kulm Country Club. The most beautiful vehicles will receive an award thanks to Eleganza in Movimento, presented by RM Sotheby’s. The cars will be judged according to innovative criteria, precisely while moving, by a jury made up of a very special team, led by the world- renowned designer Lorenzo Ramaciotti.
The Ladies’ Cup, promoted by our Main Sponsor Chopard, will be back. The Ladies will challenge each other in time trials behind the wheel of Italian classic cars to win the first prize and the title, all this inside S-Chanf military base.
Passione Engadina is the gathering of Italian classic cars manufactured until 1992
Every year, prestigious icons of the motorsport world participate in the event. The eleventh edition of Passione Engadina is no exception and this year it will host, among others, Andy Wallace, the only man in the world to drive faster than 490 km/h behind the wheel of a Bugatti Chiron, in 2019.
Nico Rosberg, 2016 Formula One world champion, will be present at some happenings. The CEO of the new Bugatti Rimac group, Mate Rimac, has also confirmed his presence.
“The quality of the cars participating in Passione Engadina 2022 has reached a top and unprecedented level, of which I’m very proud. I am even happier that Passione Engadina summons more and more young people approaching the world of classic cars. Furthermore, the partnership with Bugatti will bring to St. Moritz an exhibition of Bugatti classic cars that you could find in a museum.” Paolo Spalluto, CEO of Passione Engadina.
