Since it took over the running of the Alfa Revival Cup series at the end of 2021 and the formation of Canossa Racing, the Canossa Events team have been developing the concept of the Italian Speed Festival, run for the first time last year and scheduled to run again at the Misano World Circuit on 21-22 October. “The program”, says Luigi Orlandini, Chairman and CEO of Canossa Events, “aims to offer both participants and the attending public all the fun and entertainment a paddock and a racetrack can provide during an event. Along with races and track performances, the paddock will be buzzing with activities open to everyone: the Concorso d’Eleganza for competition Ferraris, hot laps, conferences, meetings, and performances featuring well-known figures that fans adore.”
Racing will include the final round of the 2023 Alfa Revival Cup, for all Alfas up to 1981, and the new Youngtimer Cup will have two 20-minute races for GT and touring cars up to 2005. In addition, the Ferrari Challenge cars will be competing for the Cavallino Classic Cup, with the idea of mixing the old with the new and giving owners of competition cars, which are often sadly forgotten because they are no longer competitive for racing, the opportunity to stretch their legs.
