Best of Italy Festival

Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September 2016 is set to be the ultimate heart-thumping, adrenalin-pumping and action packed weekend away! Join 150+ supercars and motorbikes as they race an exclusive, scenic, and fast 26km route through the breath-taking Italian countryside. And you can even get in on the action as Italian car, bike and bicycle owners from the UK are invited to take part in this one-off experience.

The races set off from the starting point in picturesque Castell’Arquato, where a quarter mile drag will lead to the River Arda in Emilia-Romagna, before the race continues past the Mignano Dam, and climaxes in a hill climb to Morfasso, 750m above sea level.

You can watch the action unfold and soak up the atmosphere in and around Castell’Arquato for free, or get up-close and personal with supercars and motorbikes by purchasing a VIP Weekend Paddock Pass for just €15. The Paddock will showcase the very best Italian cars from world-renowned marques including Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini, alongside a collection of superbikes from MV Augusta, Ducati and more. Paddock pass holders are also eligible to be entered into the ‘ticket to ride’ competition which will see two lucky winners offered the opportunity to be a passenger in a supercar as it tackles the course. In addition, to celebrate the Best of Italy Festival, the piazzas of Castell’Arquato will become street-food markets curated by Aldo Zilli and local restaurants will serve regional specialities.
