The first edition of Alto Adriatico Motori D’Epoca will take place as part of the 57th HI-Fi Car Amateur Radio Fair, from 22 to 23 April in Pordenone Fiere. This is a new event dedicated to vintage motors which inserts this new sector into the calendar of over 30 events scheduled this year in the city’s exhibition centre.
It will take place within an event-container that will offer over 30,000 visitors, arriving from all over the Northeast, Slovenia and Croatia, as many as four events at the same time with a single admission ticket.
In addition to the novelty, the National Amateur Radio Fair – Tech Expo, the main Italian electronics and IT outlet, is also on the calendar at the Alto Adriatico Motori D’Epoca; Nord Est Colleziona-Uniformexpo, market exhibition of military collecting, philately, numismatics; and Photomarket dedicated to antiques, modern and digital photography.
The event is also an ideal showcase for those wishing to sell their vehicle. The world of historic cars and restoration projects has in fact become an investment opportunity and over the last two decades, the market for these vehicles has recorded a constant increase and the market value has appreciated over the last 10-15 years more than that of watches, jewelery or wine.
A meeting place for Italian and non-Italian fans
Alto Adriatico Motori D’Epoca will bring dealers, spare parts dealers, tuners, clubs and associations operating in the historic and vintage motor market to the approximately 10,000 m2 in pavilions 1, 2, 3 of the Pordenone Fair.
Over 6,500 square meters of exhibition space are dedicated to the commercial stands of classic, vintage and youngtimer car and motorcycle showrooms and dealerships. While in an area of about 800 square meters there is the market of private individuals and traders who sell spare parts of all kinds for cars and motorcycles and where it is possible to find spare parts for any other historical vehicle.
There is also a large presence at the fair of local clubs and historic brand registers: Ruote del Passato, Serenissima Storico, Vespa Club, just to name a few.
In the external area of the Alto Adriatico Motori D’Epoca www.motori-epoca.it rallies of car and motorbike clubs are scheduled, dedicated to enthusiasts of BMW, Alfa Romeo, Vespa, Lambretta and American vintage cars.
Guests and awards
Guest of honor Miki Biasion, former rally driver, two-time world champion in 1988 and 1989, and currently protagonist of many rally raids. The champion will be present at the Italia Motor Sport stand to meet the trainers of his Lancia Deltas and all the enthusiasts.
A lifetime achievement award will instead be dedicated to the other guest of the Alto Adriatico Motori D’Epoca, Piero Spriano. In other words, an “auto electrician”, as he defines himself, and a key point together with others who in the MFS Maglioli Atelier in Biella prepared the best Lancias for rallies. One who, as the motivation for the award states, “has been able to combine professionalism, sympathy and flair by bringing Italian genius to the fields of the most famous rallies in the world”.
