Scuderia Real Art on Wheels is proud to announce its participation with five interesting motor cars during the Targa Florio 2022.

The Targa Florio is one of the oldest and most famous car races in the world. The “cursa” created and organized by Vincenzo Florio took place from 1906 to 1977 as a speed race and from 1978 as a rally racing competition. Over the years, the scenery of the Madonie Park, a naturalistic, historical and artistic heritage, characterized by rugged moutains overlooking the sea of Sicily, has been the theatre of the exploits of the most famous drivers of the entire international car-racing panorama.

Drivers of the calibre of Albert Dinvo, Achille Varzi, Tazio Nuvolari, Stirling Moss, Vic Elford, Graham Hill and Nino Vaccaralla, but also our own Toine Hezemans (winner 1971) and Gijs van Lennep (winner 1973) just to name a few of them. Raced and won, on the historic “Madonie Mountains Circuit”.

Toine Hezemans back at Targa Florio

Highlight of our participation is to bring back two Targa Florio historical winners to Sicily this October.

The Porsche 911 T that won the GT class of 1969 driven by Ostini and “Nomex” (Gianpiero Moretti) will be driven by Toine Hezemans and Mark Koense. Toine Hezemans participated in two original editions of the Targa Florio. In 1971 he won the Targa Florio together with Nino Vacaralla behind the steering wheel of an Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/3. In 1972, Hezemans finished third. After 50 years, Mr. Hezemans returns to the Targa Florio with Scuderia Real Art on Wheels.

Hezemans won in 1970 and 1971 the European Touring Car Championship with Alfa Romeo 1750/2000 GTAm, in 1973 with a BMW 3.0 CSL and in 1975 with a Porsche 934.
