Museo Lamborghini 2016

The Museo Lamborghini is situated to the right of the main entrance of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is a historic small town in the countryside, approximately mid way between Bologna and Modena. A bonus of its location right on the factory premises is that one will see cars being taken out on test, and maybe even spot the odd prototype. The factory is on the main SP 255, Via Modena, on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance of the historic centre, and is still the site on which Ferruccio Lamborghini established the original factory in 1963.

Ferrari 70th Anniversary Concours Maranello

Few passes in the Alps have a name like the Grossglockner at the highest mountain of the Austrian Alp region. Built in the economy crises to vitalize the employment market and to give the transport of goods between Kärnten and the Salzburger Land a boost the picturesque mountain road soon became a touristic landmark and right from the beginning the steep way up the hill became a challenge for the motorists before WWII. But not only the families with their small cars but also the elite of the international racing scene in their bolides took the Grossglockner early on. Early in the 1930s the hill climb was as popular as the GP sport and races like at the Klausenpass attracted masses one could barely imagine today.
