Ital­ian Car Day marks many mile­stones

Stirling Times - - Street Watch -

THERE will be nu­mer­ous rea­sons to celebrate at Novem­ber’s Ital­ian Car Day, which will com­mem­o­rate sev­eral au­to­mo­tive an­niver­saries.

One of Perth’s big­gest mo­tor­ing draw­cards will celebrate 50 years of the Fiat 124 Coupe, 60 years of the Fiat 500, 70 years of Fer­rari and 90 years since the first run­ning of the Mille Miglia.

The event, run by the Ro­tary Club of North­bridge, will have more than 250 cars in­clud­ing vin­tage to mod­ern Fer­raris, Maser­atis, Fi­ats, Lan­cias, Lam­borgh­i­nis, De To­ma­sos and Alfa Romeos plus mo­tor­bikes and scoot­ers.

The 1000-mile event Mille A Fer­rari heads for the mod­ern ver­sion of the Mille Miglia. Miglia was a race from Bres­cia to Rome and back from 1927 to 1957 and drew about five mil­lion spec­ta­tors each year.

Ital­ian Car Day on Novem­ber 5 is from 9.30am to 3pm at Glouces­ter Park in East Perth.

En­try is $15 adults, chil­dren free and all pro­ceeds go to Ro­tary Club ben­e­fi­cia­ries.
