I hadn’t thought about this, but it’s a very good point

I’ll let someone else more knowledgeable on this to confirm, but having been ticketed previously in Italy for a ZTL infringement (I simply took a wrong turn) it cost me 200 euros. It would dampen my commitment to driving to Turin with the prospect of some crazy charges that arrive later that you’ll find very difficult to overturn

Cheers Jamie

I have no doubt that Giorgio and the Piemonte group have this very much in mind, it's something that was highlighted some weeks ago also.

It'll be an extra challenge for them I'm sure to work out a route that avoids Turin's ULEZ unless they have friends high-up laugh

Like you Joe I'm not an expert but a quick search on google says they can pursue a UK citizen post brexit, see below


Within the EU, driver details can be shared between nations and a fine will automatically arrive at their address.

Post-Brexit, the situation for UK residents is a little different. If they hold a UK driving licence, the fine will not follow them home automatically.

The EU country is required to issue a request for the payment of the violation that will arrive in the form of a letter.

For some offences, there is no time limit so the fine may arrive many months after a trip, much to the surprise of the motorist.

Well last time there was a high-speed parade through Turin - with a police escort!

I recall the incident - it was a couple of cars away from us - but I wasn't aware that one was written off.

Yes the Polish Coupe specialist who was there bought the damaged Coupe and had it shipped back to Poland for repair.

Dates wise we've heard that they're planning to hold the 30th anniversary somewhere between 25th May - 5th June 2024, it's not set in stone but it allows us to pencil those dates in next year's diary.

The proposed dates happen to fit in with our 30th wedding anniversary!
Some interesting negotiating to follow.....
I had never made that particular connection with the coupe before!

Please pop me on the list, with a +1 TBC. Will be great doing this again.

July 2024 is FIAT's 125th anniversary I believe. Long holiday in Italy anyone? Or a return trip a month later? laugh
