The 11th edition of Europe’s biggest Italian oriented car event will take place in the weekend of 28 – 29 April on the famous Spa Franchorchamps circuit.

The program features a Tourist Rally, a Grande Parade on the circuit, (free practice) sessions for sports cars and a proper ‘Concorso d’Eleganza’. Every year a particular marque or carrozzeria is in the center of attention. Last year it was de Tomaso, the year before that Alfa Romeo because of the centenario (100 years).
This year all eyes are set on Lancia and some historic models which celebrate their birthday.
