Vernasca Silver Flag postponed in September!

Dear friends The pandemic that has been raging on all of us for a year now shows no sign of diminishing its harmful influences on our daily life...

Organizing the Silver Flag, a three-day event made up of sounds, passion, encounters between enthusiasts, the "good life" with the restrictions in place did not seem possible without distorting her soul.

For this reason, hoping that in the meantime, with the good weather and the vaccines arriving, the situation will improve significantly, we have decided, in spite of ourselves, to move the event to the weekend of 10-12 September. The CPAE will do everything to be able to organize the Silver Flag in the best, and safest way, trying to leave intact the atmosphere that in recent years has meant that so many friends have approached this event and that, in recent months, they were close to us even with just a word, a text message, an email, and for this we thank them from the bottom of our hearts!

However, not to forget our traditional June date, Saturday 26 June we will present the book we are preparing for the 25th anniversary of the Vernasca Silver Flag in Castell’Arquato, an important anniversary, 25 years ... a lifetime! A hug to everyone and see you on September 10th!

Vernasca Silver Flag, presents: "364 days to June"

Dear friends, drivers and enthusiasts,

The closer we get to the end of June, the harder it is to forget the that the time to fire up the engines for the Vernasca Silver Flag would normally be almost upon us. This year we won’t be able to attack the winding road to Vernasca, or to bathe in the crowd’s appreciation.

To make up for this, we have prepared a virtual surprise for you.

Be sure to go to our official Facebook page Saturday at 10:30AM, which is when the Italian tricolour would normally signal the start of the first run.

It will be a chance to share images, emotions, desires and memories, as if we were there, pushed into our seats, with our helmet on our head and a steering wheel in our hands. Don’t forget your car! Post a photo of the car you would have liked to use or of you taking part. It will be a virtual paddock worthy of the Silver Flag.

And lastly, SAVE THE DATE: the next real-life edition of the Silver Flag will take place on 25th -27th June 2021.


The Vernasca Silver Flag Organising Committee


TAG Heuer and Vernasca Silver Flag united by passion give you an appointment for 25-26-27 June 2021


Dear Friends
The CPAE, organizers of the Vernasca Silver Flag, considering the current development of the Covid-19 emergency, have deemed it necessary to cancel this year’s event, which was scheduled for next June.
The 25th dynamic competition for historic racing cars is therefore postponed to next year.
The entire organizing committee would like to renew its thanks to the ASI , FIVA, institutions and the sponsors which have supported the event this far, and would also like to extend its thanks to the competitors who still submitted their entries.
As the CPAE and as fans, we would have much preferred to go ahead with the event, but have decided that cancellation is the more responsible course of action.
The Silver Flag is a very popular event, where the public, owners and collectors can come together and share the joy of running splendid racing cars. Our priority is to allow anyone from anywhere in the world to travel to the hills of Piacenza safely and serenely and, above all, to enjoy three days dedicated entirely to sport, passion, culture and friendship. Unfortunately, the conditions this year were such that our competition cannot be held in absolute safety.
We decision to cancel the event was difficult and not without regret. However, we are firmly committed to holding next year’s Silver Flag as normal, and can already announce that it will take place on the 25th-26th-27th June 2021.
The organizing committee has decided any entries already submitted will be valid for the 2021 edition, if you wish to participate.



25° Vernasca Silver Flag - This year’s theme is “Museums in Motion”.

This year the CPAE (Club Piacentino Automotoveicoli d’Epoca) is celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Vernasca Silver Flag.

This event retraces the steps of the Castell’Arquato-Vernasca timed hillclimb. What was once an important race meeting is now a festival of motor-car elegance which attracts enthusiasts from all over the world. Since its inception, the event has been set apart by its unique format as a dynamic competition of elegance, avoiding any timed runs. This is a special date, distinguished by the quality and beauty of the participant’s cars as well as by the charming scenery and the warm hospitality of the people of Emilia.

Collectors from all the world over come together in this corner of the Appenines during a week-end in the early summer to creating something special. Their unique and precious vehicles form such a beautiful and comprehensive collection that it could be put on show in a cultural institution. This has led us to celebrate this special anniversary this year by choosing a different type of theme: “Museums in Motion”.

We would like to celebrate the decisive role that the car has had in the culture of the past century by exploring its stylistic development, its role in society and its sporting history. It will be a journey through time accompanied by the seductive bodywork, the growling engines and the feelings they are capable of instilling.

This is what we will do on the 26th, 27th and 28th June. Here at the CPAE we think of the culture of motorsport as something which is kept alive by people’s passion. Continuous development and renewal is vital if it is to thrive, but we must never loose sight of the thread of tradition. This is why, for one week-end, the cars will leave the various manufacturer’s museums and arrive in Castell’Arquato. They will be able to tell their story, renew emotions and leave a mark of beauty and hope for the future.
