    OFFICIAL FIAT FreakOut 2017 thread

    "From all over North America... and often from overseas... hundreds of Italian car lovers drive, trailer, and fly to converge at a chosen destination, usually rich in history and culture, to play! We unite in the spirit of friendship to celebrate the unique automobiles that reside under the umbrella of the FIAT marque including ABARTH, Alfa Romeo, FIAT, Lancia and more!" - FIAT Club America

    The 2017 [inter]national event will be hosted in Milwaukee (MKE) WI a/k/a Brew City a/k/a Cream City.

    The Cream City Cinquecento Club, the Wisconsin Chapter of FIAT Club America, is tapped to organize the happening. We're working with the local Italian Community Center (MKE), Road America, in Elkhart Lake WI, Reina International Autos, Motos & Vespa (MKE), Schlossmann FCA City and other local mainstays to properly welcome Italian car & moto aficionados to our community.

    No worries. We figured we should get the word out early.

    The best bit about the Road America trip is we'll be there the weekend of the BIG vintage racing event. Still... they were very happy to open up the track to us for a private sunset cruise.

    Reina Int'l Auto, Moto & Vespa has been involved with the FIAT & Alfa Romeo racing scene for decades. They also have a mind-blowing stable of exotics.

    AROC-Alfanatics included the event in their newsletter for the 2017 Calendar of events (thanks to a member of our planning committee).

    It's already taking great shape.

    'Appreciated, but I'm not sure I'm a better man. Crazier is more likely.

    I just want to support the western push of FIAT Club America and, hopefully, take a step towards the unification of the two longest running FIAT clubs in our country. FIAT Club America comes in second place... FIAT America holds the pole position. CC5C gets to offer something uniquely cool to our area.

    The key is putting together a team of dependable people.

    Most of the details a/k/a contracts for the planned events are in the final stages. We're working hard to get things settled as early as possible. We also changed the names of the FIAT-related events to "Normale" and "Sportivo"... to further clarify the themes of the activities.
