from: Avezzano to: Pescasseroli Km: 110
"The Avezzano circuit is a multifaceted event.
There are walks in unique mountain sceneries
which still reserve the pleasure of discovery.
There are timed trials, moments of
conviviality, the castles and micro villages of Marsica
to know. And there is the adrenaline of a circuit
citizen recalled in the wake of a local passion
for racing that has its roots in the 1950s ".

"The following morning, departure from the monumental incile del Fucino for Scanno, a village with a solid goldsmith tradition, and Pescasseroli, a lively tourist resort.

The city circuit at night!
"The historic center of Avezzano transforms itself for one night and becomes the stage for a unique event. The moment most awaited by the participants and the population: the city circuit.
Fifteen thousand people watch the parade of 100 vintage cars built from 1908 to 1970, all uncovered, whizzing along a track that winds over two kilometers of roads closed to traffic.
The presence of sports and entertainment personalities stimulates the curiosity of the spectators who, already several hours before departure, crowd behind the barriers waiting for the concert of engine roars.
The audience is that of great occasions, the traders leave the windows lit as a sign of collaboration, the drivers stroll amiably in the city center crowding the bars for an aperitif.
The large Piazza Risorgimento is full of cars, expertly arranged to be admired.
The adrenaline mounts, the engines heat up."
Saturday 03 July
At the Castello Orsini Colonna Avezzano with the presentation of the book "10 years of the Avezzano circuit" by Tesori d'Abruzzo, finally, at the Municipal Art Gallery of the Piccolomini Castle in Avezzano, the exhibition "The Counts of the future" will be inaugurated to celebrate two great personalities of motorsport active between the two world wars: Carlo Felice Trossi and Mario Revelli di Beaumont. The exhibition curated by Corrado Lopresto seals with this cultural moment, an edition that will remain in history.
Great satisfaction from the participants who discovered truly fantastic areas of Abruzzo and above all from the Patron of the event Felice Graziani, who thanks to the novelty of the Abruzzo Gran Tour once again underlined that the real protagonist of this event is the territory with the its history, culture, food and wine and landscapes.
A format that of the Abruzzo Gran Tour and the Avezzano Circuit that allows you to visit Abruzzo in all its facets aboard your own vintage spider and which will certainly be replicated next year.
