GP Ice Race – Zell am See (Austria)

The ICE St. Moritz (Switzerland)

The name ICE ‘plays' with ice - the chosen terrain for the event scheduled to take place on 26th February – but it is also the acronym of International Concours of Elegance. A unique show, during which the cars are engaged in a fashionable yet extremely challenging driving context.

Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance - Florida 26th February

It is a great charity event – where millions of Dollars are raised – held at The Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island. The two biggest competitions – of elegance and sports – are organised by the New York Times. On 26th February.

Coppa Milano-Sanremo

It can boast the title of being the oldest race in Italy, since the first edition was held in April 1906. For the last fifteen years or so, the re-enactment is being held with an ever greater success. This year, it is scheduled to take place from 31st March until 2nd April.

Salon Privé – London (England)

From 21st to 23rd April, the appointment is confirmed at the Royal Hospital Chelsea: this typically English setting plays host to luxury cars involved in a series of events, presentations of new models and a high-end auction.

On May 29 historic and prestigious racing cars will once again roar their engines on the Circuito delle Mura for the historical re-enactment of the Bergamo GP won by Tazio Nuvolari in 1935. Now in its 15th edition, it continues to enjoy great public success and also sees the return of Pirelli, sponsor of the event at the time.

1000 Miglia

Enzo Ferrari defined it as ‘the most beautiful race in the world'. It is celebrating its 40th edition: while it remains exciting for loyal fans, for neophytes - especially foreign ones - it can be a way to discover Italy. Departing from Brescia on 15th June and returning there on the 18th.

Milano-Monza Motor Show

A great ‘open air' idea which made its début in 2021, limited to the centre of the metropolis while the second edition will be stretching to the Monza race track. From 15th to 19th June, it will offer the public the chance to see both new and historic vehicles.

Goodwood Festival of Speed – Goodwood (England)

From 23rd to 26th June, a unique mix of models from the past, present and future in the splendid setting of the Duke of Richmond Park. The hill climb is iconic: almost two kms covered at high speed by all the vehicles.

An enjoyable, all-Italian event that peacefully ‘invades' the roads of the Emerald Coast, starring race cars, supercars and yougtimers as well as the summery ‘spiaggina' and the ‘barchetta' cars. From 8th until 10th July.
