Summer is officially started but the motoring passion doesn't go on vacation. On the contrary, July is a month particularly full of events dedicated to those who love spending their free time on winding mountain roads, hot asphalt tracks and anywhere else where you can enjoy the sunshine reflecting on the body of stunning cars with a long and fascinating history.

The passion for cars and the habit of searching for beauty in every aspect of life are two things you usually develop in your childhood, often linked to unforgettable trips and chats on the road. Happy Few Racing dedicates to these moments the Raduno Padre-Figlio: a long weekend that brings together opportunities for interaction between young and older car enthusiasts, drives on carefully selected and highly suggestive routes, regularity trials and some surprises for international crews composed exclusively of fathers and sons.
The Raduno Padre-Figlio will last four days, with a 660 km route that will explore the homeland of Ferrari, right where the legend was born. Florence, Modena, Maranello and Montalcino are the legs of a fantastic adventure reserved for Ferrari cars but also open to non-professional drivers.
Someone calls it the “Mountain Mille Miglia”... and for 70 years it has never stopped fascinating and giving great moments of driving and sharing. The Coppa Oro della Dolomiti returns this year with 303,8 km of the original route on which Salvatore Ammendola won the first edition back in 1947 driving an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS, plus another 200 km around breathtaking dolomite peaks and passes.
On the very same streets, cars of that period and the never-fading passion will be the protagonists of a unique event. The regularity trial will feature 120 cars built between 1919 and 1961, with a special category reserved for cars between 1962 and 1965 of particular historical interest or sports merit. The route will reach some renowned destinations such as Dobbiaco, Corvara, Passo Pordoi, Canazei, Belluno and the beautiful Cortina d’Ampezzo.
In July 2017, the legendary Solitude Ring between Leonberg, Sindelfingen and Stuttgart will host the fifth edition of Solitude Revival, an event that has been among top-class ones for difficulty and beauty since its birth in 1903. Its track was and still is known for crossing a dense forest with trees close to the road, often quite narrow. All at maximum speed!
The 2017 edition awaits about 200 vintage vehicles and enthusiasts from all over Europe ready to live – and revive – the amazing show of epic races of the past. Among the cars that will attend Solitude Revival, there will also be some that are already inside the race record books, such as the Brabham BT3 on which Jack Brabham won on this circuit back in 1963.
