An edition full of surprises !

Following a sabbatical year, SpaItalia is back in action on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, under a completely revised formula, to better meet the expectations of the general public and enthusiasts alike.

First major news of this 13th edition; the arrival of motorbikes in the midst of this green-white-red party. In fact 4 sessions of 25 minutes per day swill be devoted to the two-wheelers. Ducati, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta will be just some of the made in Italy makes that the motosport aficionados will have the pleasure of rediscovering on this Belgian Ardennes circuit.

The hardcore fans of Italian cars will not be left high and dry: 3 sessions of 25 minutes per day will be devoted to Maserati, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and other transalpine makes. However the participants will be divided based on the power of their cars: under or over 300 bhp. A special offer will also be on hand for clubs and their members.

Remaining in the 4 wheels domain, a “discovery” rally, starting from the circuit, will be held on the Saturday afternoon. On the programme: one lap of the circuit, an easy run through some of the most pleasant scenery of the Belgian Ardennes and its mythical hill-climbs to finally return to Francorchamps by the end of the day. The rally’s prize giving will most probably take place in the lounges of the Eau Rouge where the evening gala is also to be held.

On the entertainment front the Carrozzeria Bertone will be honoured on the occasion of the hundredth birthday of Nuccio Bertone. An exhibition displaying some of the make’s unique models, emanating from the Bertone museum and private collections, will be set-up in the paddock. Definitely an opportunity not to be missed! Italy will also be honoured through its gastronomic delights, its fashion and everything that contributes to the charm of Bel Paese.
