Cavallino wins the Fiat Club Montreal Cincana 2012 Race

Under a sunny sky and warm weather the Fiat Club Montreal held its first annual Cincana Race hosted at the Espace Maison store located in Montreal-East. Onsite children parks, oven baked pizza, espresso and much more were served. In Italian tradition the car event was much more than a celebration for the automobile but a great opportunity for families and friends to a great summer day and their company.

A show and shine  venue welcoming all Italian Automobiles, Fiats, Alfa Romeo’s, Ferrari’s, Maserati’s were all present, from new to vintage, from fully restored to completely up-fitted machines, the event was a celebration of a great automotive summer we have just experienced. New cars, new friends and new venues have been created all thanks to the new Fiat 500 and its extremely enthusiastic Montreal Fiat Club. Thank you again for a great event, it was a blast, and special thanks to Caffitaly Canada for donating a superb expresso machine to the winner of the Cincana event. Thank you for the coffee I am drinking as I write this post ;-).
