During the month of August there is an exciting race to ‘race cars without engines’ on the long descent of 2.8 km from the Madonna della Guardia Sanctuary to the historical town centre. These buggies can reach a maximum speed of 80 km/h and it is a unique sport in its genre.

The competition is inspired by a game that the young men played after the war in the streets of the town. The wheelchair, then, was a wooden board with ball bearings. The race has become so popular that it has turned into a Palio among the districts.
