The Vallelunga Classic continues a tradition of historic racing by Peter Auto in Italy, with an event at the circuit in the hills near Rome.

Racing in Italy always provides a special emotion. Homeland of the best sports brands – Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati … – authentic automobile jewel in the collective imagination. Earth of anthology circuits, Imola, Monza, Mugello, Pescara … – arenas of the finest mechanical games.

Italy is also the home of the tifosi, the unconditional supporters of the Scuderia Ferrari. These fans have all they need to go into raptures in the Monza Historic paddock in which “made in Maranello” prototypes and GTs can be seen including a Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta (1959), a Ferrari 512 S (1970), and a Ferrari 333 SP (1994). And the other Italian makes are not to be outshone with the presence of several Alfa Romeos, Bizzarrinis, De Tomasos, Iso Rivoltas, Maseratis, Lancias, Osellas and so on.

And finally the proximity of Roma adds an additional touch of charm to this event giving it a touristic and cultural dimension that encourages competitors to bring along their families.

Events

The Peter Auto grids are devoted to different periods of the history of motor sport and to different circuit racing cars: GTs, Sports cars, Prototypes and Touring cars from the 1950s to the 2000s.
