2nd Trans-Alps Rally : Stage 4
Friday 15 september 2023 / CORTINA – VENISEFor the last stage, leaving from Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the heart of the giants of the Dolomites, the route offered notable passages at the top of Passo Giau and Passo Staulanza (where the last CP of the rally was held) and the Passo Durán. We then had to head towards Veneto, crossing the Dolomites Bellunese National Park, still very mountainous, made of cliffs and debris slopes, ideal habitat for many high mountain species. Having passed rivers and streams we then reached the lunch spot established at Case Rosse, an establishment perched on a hill offering a breathtaking view of the last peaks, before entering the plains leading to the Venice lagoon. The afternoon was therefore more unique after the gigantism of the Dolomites that we surveyed during 2 stages, but the arrival in Venice sounded like an enchantment as the closing of this 2nd Trans-Alps rally dedicated to Italy.
The prizegiving diner takes place this evening in a Venetian palace where everyone is disguised as is the custom of the famous carnival.
