NO ENZO IN SIGHT FOR FLYING FERRARI
IT’S been 70 years since the great Enzo Ferrari fired up the engine of the first car to bear his name and the ‘prancing horse’ badge, and it will be celebrated in Perth on September 17 at the Italian Festival Track Dayat Barbagallo Raceway.
“There will be a huge array of Ferraris,” organiser Loreno Acciari said.
“Many will be competing in track events and many more will be on display, along with other Italian brands, such as Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Lamborghini.
“There will also be some motorcycles and scooters on show: Ducatis, Laverdas, MV Agustas, Vespas and Lambrettas, among others.”
No Italian festival can go without fine Italian fare and there will be a lot of that: wood-fired pizza ovens, gelato, a coffee van, sweets and biscuits and arancini.
There will also be a sausage and burger stall run by the HQ Racing Association.
The speed events will be four-lappers for various brands and the display Ferraris will be judged in a concours d’eleganza.
Gates open at 9am, entry is $5, free for kids, and the first on-track event is at 10.30am.
If you’d like to trot out your prancing horse on the day, give Loreno a call on 9444 1809 or email aacciari@bigpond. net.au.
One of Enzo's early models, this one from 1952... the marque will be out in numbers at Barbagallo Raceway on September 17.
