Cars will rally for a road excursion from the LaGrange Winery in Haymarket, Virginia.

ANNUAL ALL ITALIAN CAR TOUR

The Raduna Primavera event is a special one on the Eastern Seaboard.

The DC Fiat group says, “The starting point is the Winery at Lagrange near Haymarket, Virginia. After a quick driver’s meeting, cars will embark on a journey taking them on some of northern Virginia’s finest back roads. Then it’s across the Potomac and up onto the twisty roads of Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains with a lunchtime finish at Thurmont’s Cozy Restaurant.”

According to the car club’s representatives, pricing for participation is $25 per person (which includes a buffet lunch at the Cozy). As such, one can expect the entry fee to be per guest rather than per carload. As a family oriented event, pre-teen children are free. Registration is already open and going strong. Keep in mind there will be a $20 late fee added to registrations received after May, 29th, 2009 so be sure to have your payment and registration in to the group organizers early. Yes, the club does offer online registration options (which you can access by clicking HERE).

PICTURES AND PHOTOS OF THE ALL ITALIAN CAR TOUR EVENTS

If you have photos to share from the 2009 Raduno Primavera or any past all Italian car tour or shows, please email connectionsprep@gmail.com. Kae Davis will be more than happy to share as many as we can in a slideshow for the Exotic Car Examiner column (to help you promote not only your exotic car brand but also to help past or future participants find information about your car club and automobile event).

THINGS TO DO (AND NOT TO DO) FOR THE RADUNO PRIMAVERA

Other rules and restrictions include the following special event notes: 1. Italian cars only — through they like and appreciate other car brands, their racing hearts on this day seek to include only the lovely cars of Italy. Men and women drivers equally welcome. 2. Participating vehicles must be street legal and fully insured. Always a given at any road rally for any car marquee club activity, it is amazing but some people do have a fantasy of driving their non-street legal machines around the winding and lush view roads of our country. 3. Drivers are expected to obey all traffic laws and posted speed limits. Please note that radar detectors are illegal in the state of Virginia and traffic cameras are now posted throughout the region (targeting intersection crossing violators, mainly). There are also many speed traps,  so pace yourself politely and accordingly to keep on the favored side of any state troopers, sheriffs, or police working the area for the purpose of road safety. 4. The supporting clubs and organizers are not responsible for the actions of participants. [That means play nice with other cars and community neighbors you encounter while driving through the neighborhoods of the beautiful rural and suburban Northern Virginia region just miles away from our nations capital Washington DC.]
