After last year’s record set in August for Leocorno, Violenta da Clodia at Selva broke it again by setting a time of 1′ 12″ 39/100. Last year’s record time was 1′ 12″ 66/100.
In 2011, then mayor Franco Ceccuzzi and the city council decided that the time measurement of the Palio was of no added value to the festival. The official timing of the Palio was abolished.
Currently the timing is performed by the Telegram channel “IL PALIO DI SIENA” which, by watching the video, performs 20 manual time measurements. They take a statistical average of 18 results after excluding the fastest and slowest measurement.
