It might be interesting if we contribute news and track pictures from our respective Countries. Personally, I would very much like to know what's going on in Germany, and what type of federation (if any) exists

For a start, this is the Ayrton Senna Club track in Soragna (SE of Milan, about one hour out)

(click on "la pista")

Although not Italy's largest track, it's generally considered the premier racing venue - not least because of the friendliness and enthusiasm of the members (we are at the edge of Ferrarishire)

They also organized the Italian Championship last December, but as in Spain they got to use the Sports Hall and erected the customary mirror image Ninco tracks - so that nobody had home track advantage

Anybody stopping by is sure to be welcomed and plied with prosciutto and wine - just don't disgrace yourself by having magnets !

Nice tracks, Biberle - and I wouldn't call them under-decorated at all - most tracks in Italy are strictly functional

Now, as Thomas was mentioning, do you have a lot of inter-club events and a national championship ? Are there standard car classes?

In Italy, it's Fly Classic / Ninco DTM / LMP
(and YES, Wankel, strictly non magnetic - although there are urban legends of people hiding a thin magnet under the lead ballast !)
Considering how factious we tend to be, it's nearly a miracle - although of course people couldn't quite agree, so DTM is divided into NC1 and NC2, and we have LMP Light (23k) and LMP Open (29k). Funny thing is that then at the Championship most raced in ALL categories !

Ciao
Beppe

PS : is your nick in any way related to the Oktoberfest?
