Thanks Virginie, less than 2 weeks to go now...

On the Saturday, did you/Giorgio really mean up until 23:00 (11pm) for us to keep our cars at the Piazza? I assume that we are parking all 80+ Coupes that are registered in the off-street parking in the square (perhaps even right outside Cafe Lab?) and then wandering off to Parco del Valentino (a 15-20 minute walk away) where they have various events and exhibits/stands but we can't leave with our Coupe until after 23:00 (11pm)?

On the list of events it mentions on Saturday at 15.30 p.m. - Fiat Coupé 25th Anniversary Parade - what is this?

Hi Dave,

to answer your question - but I'm not sure if I'm right - I assume we can leave our cars parked in the Piazza on saturday and can wander around to see everything else that's happening in Parco Valentino. At least that is what I'm hoping for.....

Yes, that's what I assume, but Giorgio has said to meet at the end of the day from 10pm to start leaving...

I've received a t-shirt and polo shirt today - very impressed with the quality. Sizing is fractionally on the large side.

I'll say, my Large (42") is more like 44" and Medium (38") would have been better frown

Have you got time to get it checked whether it's holding pressure?

I've just had mine (White Plus) regassed for the first time since I bought it (Dec 2016) - it was completely empty!

I think Doris is a non-aircon model, no pressure to test frown As long as the windows work and the heater isn't stuck on full heat, you should be OK

Yes, a non aircon model- when we did the Italian road trip last year we just accepted that it was going to be sweaty. I almost regretted swapping the cloth seats for leather..

Feels like the appropriate time to wish everyone that is going (UK Members and our Coupe Friends in Europe) a fantastic, happy and above all safe trip to Italia!

I am absolutely gutted not to be able to attend this event - due to a pre-standing family commitment over - I could almost taste the ice cold Italian beer...!

With best wishes to all that attend I hope last minute fettling of our cars goes well and you simply have a fantastic time with your coupes doing what they were designed to do -driving quickly in the Italian sunshine, with no air con! I and I am sure all of us are looking forward to hearing all of your adventures!!

Bon Voyage to all!!

An envious MM

How is everyone keeping in contact "on the road" and in Turin? Could I swop numbers with someone in case I need to contact you all.
