Dear friends of historic motorsports, 

from September 8 to 10, 2023, the Kilomètre Lancé will take place for the third time as the kick-off event of the International St. Moritz Automobile Week. Already on Friday, historic aircraft are expected at Engadin Airport. The sprints on Saturday offer some highlights.

We visited our participants in Düsseldorf from 4 to 6 August 2023. A big compliment to York Seifert, who restored his history-steeped 300 SL Roadster to the state it was in on 4 November 1958 for the Kilometer Race in St. Moritz.

St. Moritz. Das Kilomètre Lancé vom 2. bis 4. September 2022 auf dem Engadin Airport in St. Moritz war ein großer Erfolg. Auch anfängliche Wetterkapriolen sahen die 65 Automobile und Motorräder als Herausforderung und nutzten die großzügigen Fahrzeiten, um sich zu messen, um Rekorde aus der Frühzeit des Beschleunigungsrennen zu jagen oder einfach nur, um diese Fahrt in Richtung Horizont zu genießen.

It is time. From all parts of Europe, participants will make their way to the Kilomètre Lancé from 2 to 4 September 2022 in St. Moritz. However, Solitude GmbH as the organiser within the framework of the International St. Moritz Automobile Week would like to pay homage above all to those who travel to the highest airport in Europe with the competition vehicles on their own wheels.

International St. Moritz Motoring Week with the Kilomètre Lancé event nominated as the best motoring event in the world

 The Kilomètre Lancé, organised under the umbrella of the International St. Moritz Motoring Week from 2 to 4 September, has been nominated for the Historic Motoring Awards 2022 in the category "Motoring Event". This is the only award given worldwide for outstanding achievements in the classic car industry.

There are only five starting places left for the motorcycles!

With the starting number 1, the Brough Superior SS100 takes the 1000-meter sprint under its wheels. Until the Second World War, motorcycles with the 70 hp twin were considered the world's fastest and best-manufactured machines. The brand became famous through the British colonel, spy and writer T. E. Lawrence. The fanatical sportsman and motorcyclist had acquired seven new Brough Superior in twelve years, covering up to 800 kilometers a day on his numerous journeys.

Some entries are surprising. The Brazilian Mauricio Marx will take part in the Kilomètre Lancé from 8 to 10 September 2023 with his 1951 Porsche 356 split-window cabriolet. The car arrives in the national capital by plane from Sao Paulo. From there, the 42-year-old drives on the road.
