Hello,

Will there be anyone going to the subject meet?
It seems there is not a lot of official info on the subject. Only some small talks on some German Facebook pages...
Maybe someone has some more info?

I just found this topic:
http://www.alfaclub.eu/164register/view ... =6&t=10107
Apparently there will be the V10 procar and parade on test track :)
It's really tempting... but 1200km in one direction and not sure if I would get another holiday at work :?

1200km one way and you're complaining? :D
It's 2500km for me one way + two months left and nearly no spare time to prepare a non running car for the journey and I'm still thinking of going there...
Thanks for the link! :)

Well, problem is that on Friday my colleague at work has already holiday so I won't get one, but still will think about how to figure it somehow and go :)
I also post info about this on our Czech (and also one Polish) forum and there might be more cars coming, but let's see :)

From Czech tere will be probably at least 3 cars (except for mine - still not sure if I'll be able to come) and from what I have heard already at least 80 cars are enrolled.

All,

I will be there in Arese too, i'm Lucky that i can combine it with a visit to my Italian colleague nearby Verona.
The camera is prepared and will do some overtime....
My 24v automatic isn't ready to make the trip so i have to use my company car.

21th we will drive to Arese, have a stop in the south of Germany and the next day we'll go via the Stelvio to Milaan.

I hope te meet some members of this site.

I have to say this was one of the best weekends in my life! Despite some flaws (like the conference with Mr. Fumia being only in Italian! What the...?) it was really great event :)
Car behaved as it should - on autobahn it did not have problems running almost all the time at 4.5-5.5k RPM at constant speeds 160-180 and vMax hit was 234km/h :lol: - so it seems most of the horses is still there :)
Consumption on 2550km I have travelled was in average cca 10l/100km.
There were two great benefits extra benefits of this trip.
1st, on the way back we went through Stelvio passage and it was remarkable :) nice weather + almost no traffic on the way up = excellent conditions :)

Second was very kind (and unexpected) gift from Hendrik :oops: :

I did not expect to get my hands on one of those ever. Hendrik, I'm in great debt, when I will be going through Netherlands I will bring you some Czech beer!
As for the pictures I did not take many as I had only mobile phone with me (which makes bad pictures) so I will let uthers to upload some :)

It sure was a great event and like you said MikeCZ, it was all in Italian. There must be someone been sleeping when people apply to participate, they should have seen they are not all Italian...I think it was harder for them to do the presentation in english than we understood Italian......

The lunch was very nice...

It was a pleasure Mike, and we'll meet again on a event..

When i'm back home i will add some pictures and movies. When the left the track i took pictures.
I still enjoy the good life here.

Have just bought a house and some works have to be done, moving is coming on 26 july, so it gets me VERY sad not to be at ARESE. :( :(

Fortunately I make 2400 km per month with our 164 TD to go to our new home (299500 km actually) and each journey is a pleasure despite the trailer.

It was fantastic. I was lucky to be able to understand just a little Italian, but enough to understand what they were talking about. Without any Italian, you were screwed. I am kind of hoping for some official report, as I think they were recording the entire session. The talks were very interesting, both from Mr. Fumia and the test drivers, and also quite emotional. Some notable guests as well, never before seen pictures from design and testing of 164, some personal memories and stories. We got a nice gift in form of a commemorative 164 sketch drawn and signed by Mr. Fumia. There was also the Alfa Romeo anniversary, so the museum had some interesting events as well (like the designers of modern Alfas sketching live, etc.). Definitely worth the long drive and I will definitely attend next time! :D
