On Saturday 29th October, the grand 2016 Abarth official meeting will take place, bringing thousands of fans to four European circuits: Silverstone in Great Britain, Nurburgring in Germany, Navarra in Spain and Tazio Nuvolari, near Pavia, in Italy.
All Abarth automobiles will be the stars of the show: from the eldest and most precious historical cars, built from 1949 - the year when the house of the Scorpion was born - onwards, to the brand new Abarth 595 and Abarth 124 spider.
All four events share the same programme with some local differences, and they will involve the ever growing, 50,000 fans strong "The Scorpionship" community, which you can join for free on the website (scorpionship.abarth.com).
There will be an area dedicated to modern vehicles, one for classic cars and one for the Abarth Clubs affiliated to "The Scorpionship", complementing a really intensive and exciting programme for all the public of fans. Those who arrive on board of their Abarth will be able to park inside the paddock and drive their car on the tracks, after purchasing the specific ticket.
Mopar will also be at the show, the brand of reference for services, Customer Care, genuine spare parts and accessories for the FCA brands. Its Mopar Store will allow all fans to buy official Abarth merchandise and accessories, and to admire the kits kept under glass. There will also be limited edition clothes to celebrate the event. Mopar Express Care (MEC) will also feature on the field, acting as a full mobile repairs workshop, complete with office section, diagnosis zone and operation area.
Inside the entertainment area, designed for Abarth fans of all ages, you will be able to use driving simulators, to challenge each other with remote controlled Abarth cars and, thanks to the new virtual reality, to configure the new Abarth 124 spider with all the fittings and colours in range.
There will be opportunities to compete in exciting contests and access the Partner Village, featuring some of the top brands from the world of sports competitions and more, such as Michelin, Sabelt, Compagnia Ducale, Laudoracing Models and Breil.
Each of the four circuits will feature test drives on the tracks and outside, with the new cars of the Abarth range: the new 124 spider, the new 595 and the 695 two-seater.
Furthermore, you will be able to experience the extreme Abarth performance by becoming the co-driver of one of the exciting Abarth racing cars, driven by a professional pilot. A full event, that will enable all Abarth fans to get their adrenaline going on the track, sharing the passion for the Scorpion brand.
