RACE OVERVIEWItalian Extravaganza
In the early days, Enzo Ferrari was a test driver and later a race driver for Alfa Romeo. He had some success in racing an Alfa at local events, but didn`t quite make it to the big time. He became the Alfa dealer in Modena and set up Scuderia (Stable) Ferrari to manage rich Alfa owners prepare and race their cars. His successful Scuderia became the official works team with Alfa Romeo supplying the latest race cars. A ride around "The Three Provinces" Circuit with Tazio Nuvolari convinced Enzo that his skills as a team manager exceeded his driving ability considerably and his driving took a back seat.
It is said that in this part of Italy, you could take a farm worker out of the fields and turn him into a great race mechanic practically overnight. So the Modena area became like the Silicon Valley for Exotic Cars. Maserati, OSCAR, Ferrari, Lamberghini, Stanguellini, Dallara, and Pagani would not have produced exotic cars without the ability of the local mechanics. When Phil Hill would host this tour with our group he would always meet with his old team mechanics, such was his admiration and close relationship.
There is nothing mundane about the cars built around Modena. The passion runs deep, it is about the most exotic engines with the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini still producing V12`s. Incredible designers like Bertone, Ghia, Pininfarina, Scaglietti, Touring, Vignale and Zagato produce the Italian coachwork of the supercars that make the enthusiast drool. This area is all about the best Exotic cars and race cars produced in the world, so we take you behind the scenes on a tour of a life time.
