While we must give up some historical features of the route due to the unavailability of the road concerned, the race is ready to excite announcing three days of great challenges punctuated by 14 Special Stages
The program also includes the "Graffiti", essential event for experts of regularity which was confirmed eligible for the continental title.

The Organizing Committee ACI Livorno Sport are already receiving many letters, e-mails and phone calls from Italy and abroad for get news, last-minute news and information on the XXV Rallye Elba Storico, scheduled for September 19 to 21, under one of the most exclusive contexts in the world to compete in an event of motorsport: the Island of Elba.

A quarter of a century that will be celebrated as the tenth round of the 2013 FIA European Historic Rally Championship and penultimate of the 2013 Italian Championship, while the part of "Graffiti" will be valid again for the FIA Trophy for Regularity Rallies (the fifth of the seven races on the 2013 calendar), in practice the continental championship, the evolution of regularity "classic" vault certainly more competitive sport where rankings are to make passage controls and average tests.

Competition, exciting duels with the cars that have made the history of street racing and even culture. The added value of the Rallye Elba Storico have always been these and this 2013, to continue the tradition of excellence has struggled in greater way to draw the path. A difficulty date, for example, by the fact of not having full of traditional Stage par excellence, the ´Parata-Falconaia". Unfortunately, when the Organizers have to trace the route, the Provincial Road "Parata" was partially unusable for which they had to find alternatives.

The Organization has repeatedly called for the cooperation of the Province of Livorno in order to restore the thoroughfare in question also by virtue of being able to see her use with the summer season - so in the public interest - and not just for the competition .

The alternatives are not lacking: a new look inspired by the past is ready to give vibratory sensations to the crews, who will, however, before a fun track and mainly technical. Where you will also have a higher percentage of kilometers of special stages compared to the case of transfer.
There are again three days of challenges, with a total of 14 special stages, two more than in 2012. "Historic" paths, which have seen more than one occasion sporting exploits written in indelible ink.

The broad consensus of the past years (seven nations represented among the competitors, approximately 7000 units recorded movement of these various roles with the event in 2012), has "forced" ACI Livorno Sport to redesign much of the recent past, then the result of choices made always thinking about who should qualify for the race, so teams, experts, enthusiasts and also and above all the territory.

Since 2011 the headquarters moved in Capoliveri, reconfirmed location that was also theater of a Special Stage that passes through the village, which will be repeated this year. The Rallye Elba will also touch Porto Azzurro, little town that was, until recently, stage of the modern rally that takes place in the spring. Moving the regroupment between the first special stage, the "Volterraio-Falconaia" and the second (the one just inside Capoliveri) will close the appetizing aperitif in the evening on Thursday, as well as to take a good part of the island, they sound like confirmation the active involvement of all the administrations of the territory.

Why the Rallye is understood as its own of the territory but also "for the territory", which promotes the image, communication and also the economic fallout with the emotional tourism, the island that resulted from the event itself.
Nothing changed, compared to the two previous editions, with regard to the logistics of the rally: the headquarters of the event is confirmed in Capoliveri, functional facilities at the Hotel Elba International, exclusive location that admires the Gulf of Porto Azzurro, where they will be organized the Race Direction, the Secretariat and the Press.

The race will start on the evening of Thursday, 19 September: from 20.00 competitors will drop from the start ramp in Piazza Matteotti in Capoliveri and will go immediately to contend with two special stages, as mentioned on the "Volterraio" and "Capoliveri." Then, the competitors will enter the regrouping night at 22,31.
The second day of competition, Friday, 20 September, which will start at 08,01, provides for another six special stages, with the final of the first leg foreseen at 16.14, again Capoliveri. The next day, Saturday 21 September, the grand finale, with a further six timed sections: the challenges will start at 08.30 and the checkered flag, yet in Capoliveri, flown in from 16.00.
In total, the rally measurement 484.860 km, of which 138.210 are timed, ie 28.51% of the distance.

The Rallye Elba is a frame. Fine. They know those who organize the side trophies and for this they come on the Island with the desire to give value to their initiatives. It is the most brilliant example the lucky A112 Abarth Trophy, which on this occasion will propose the distinction of being the only rally that will take each stage as a race apart, with clear benefit of competition and entertainment. There will also be the 2013Historic Car Rally Challenge, the "Memory Nino Fornaca" (Elba Rally will be the last event of the mini racing circuit dedicated to the memory of the unforgettable PR disappeared 16 years ago now) and the Porsche-Michelin Historic Rally Cup (also for this trophy Rally Elba will be the last act).
