34th Tilting at the Ring @ Istra ( Istria )

21.8.2009. 20:00 - 23.8.2009.Barban

34th Tilting at the Ring @ Istra ( Istria )The "Tilting at the Ring" at the "Gradišće" lane in Barban is held every year the third weekend in August.
To discover the charm and the beauty of that ancient cavalry game meant to study deep into history and reach as far as the year 1696, in which the most ancient entry about the Race is preserved.
The competitors - those Barban knights - in three races and in less than 12 seconds - must "overcome" a track 150 meters long and hit the ring with their lance. The ring consists of two concentric circles connected so as to form four sections. The hit in the centre gives three points, above the centre two, under the centre one and on sides half point. The competitor who achieves the highest number of points in the three races becomes the winner of the Race.

The race of ring lasts three days and is great fun!
