The International St. Moritz Automobile Week 2023
September 8 @ 3:00 pm - September 17 @ 4:00 pm
The first International St. Moritz Automobile Week was launched in 1929. It was financed by, somewhat logically, the local tourist industry of the time.
In those days the automobile week consisted of a rally, the kilometre race, a skill race, a concours and finally the Bernina Hill Climb, now known as the ‘Bernina Gran Turismo’. This latter element, held since 2015, is now rightly considered to be one of the most beautiful events in the historic racing calendar.
The current edition of the “International St. Moritz Automobile Week” also commences with a sprint race, the “Kilomètre Lancé – Alpine 1000”, but now takes place on the runway of Engadin Airport.
There is also the Automotive Film Festival first introduced in 2021, which offers historic cinematic delights appropriate to the theme of St. Moritz Automobile Week.
Many of the elements of the early events are embedded in the current activities including a ‘Concours d’Elegance and a “Garden Party” where enthusiasts can mix and exchange stories in a convivial atmosphere surrounded by exotic automotive machinery.
RM Sotheby’s will again be holding a ‘Collector Car’ auction in the grounds of the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains.
And then there is “Le piece de la resistance”, the Bernina Gran Turismo. The technical vehicle scrutineering will also take place in front of the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains, offering spectators the opportunity to observe the racing vehicles up close. This is before ‘Automobile Week’ literally reaches its climax on the magnificent Bernina Pass road between La Rösa and the top of the pass.
