Wonderland Ride 2015
Saturday, April 18, 2015
The departure was scheduled at 10:00 from home Italian Luxury Car Hire in Maranello, the registered teams recovered the starter kit and the first envelope puzzle that will lead them to the dealer S.V.A. Group of Ravenna for a test in GT style. Once passed the test, crews depart for Rimini, until the entry of Italy in Miniature, but how to enter is, again, a puzzle to be solved! Sooner or later they all succeed, and beetwin the hundreds of thumbnails will find something that will serve in the next 24 hours. The weather gets worse but this does not excuse us from passing from Tavullia (the city of Valentino Rossi). After a brief lunch and a downpour the teams make their way to the city of Urbino, where they are greeted by Etiè and Redbull. Last clue of the day is to find the Hotel Ai Cappuccini in the country of fools: Gubbio. The crews will enjoy a well earned rest between the services offered by the hotel spa. A sumptuous dinner together, and a little piano bar, to end a day-wonder.

We wake up early at the "Wonderland Ride". We start again but not before visiting Gubbio. Westward direction Perugia, passing by the infamous curve "Centova", and then on to Lake Trasimeno, collecting essential information in the country of Passignano and Tuoro. The white rabbit is near and its traces are found in Rapolano terme. Just enough time for a photo to go to Panzano in Chianti at Mill Grace where good wine gladdens the participants. Time to buy a few bottles to take home and then heads to Florence, where there is an unsolvable enigma in Piazzale Michelangelo, but the final goal is hidden beyond a long staircase and is the Over Glass cafe of Scandicci, which welcomes curious and crews with a rich buffet of truffles offered by Savitar of San Miniato. The crowning awards not the fastest, but the smartest. So the USA Drivers Club team, from Rome, took home the victory; Etiè gives 2 pairs of 2015 collection sunglasses to crew Go & Fun with their very black Cobra. And finally Airwheel gives the most votes Photo Award to Pink Panthers with their Bentley, white.
