14th to 16th September Best of Italy Race in Italy
Every year, roughly, an hour south of Milan, a magical road race takes place lining the streets of Castell'Arquato with the best of Italian motorsport production. With over 26km dedicated entirely to motorsport enthusiasts over a course of two full days, The Best of Italy Race is possibly the most amazing road race event in the whole of Europe, if not the globe. This year we were lucky enough to have been able to drive all the way from the UK to Castell'Arquato (a gruelling 14 hour, 30 min drive) to witness a truly sensational event. Over 200 Italian supercars, plus 12 wild card non-Italian cars, and 150 motorcycles set off as they raced 20km over the closed road course to lunch in the Mountains, and then back again... Simply, breathtaking! Words cannot describe how mesmerising it was to watch the staggering amount of bikes and supercars decorate the streets as locals watched and cheered in support. The atmosphere was exhilarating! And, as if the race wasn't enough of a treat itself, we also had the absolute pleasure of doing reveals on the start line of the Aston Martin Vulcan, Mazzanti Super Car and Tamburinio Super Bike, absolute brilliant exposure for the brand! But, it didn't stop there! If you're a Lamborghini lover, you may have heard of Valentino Balboni, the famous Lamborghini test driver, who's also designed special limited editions. Well, not only did we get to do a 3 car reveal for him, but (wait for it) we were also able to do a reveal of a Lamborghini Urraco for the one and only Fabio Lamborghini, international speaker and nephew of the Lamborghini's founder, it was an honour! To put it short, we had the most amazing time at The Best of Italy Race, it was well worth the 14 hour plus drive, and who knows what the future may hold for Airshroud and Lamborghini...
