Scuderia Tazio Nuvolari Italia and Delightful Driving teamed up to organise a meeting that has not been seen before: Bugatti and Lotus owners and enthousiasts come together in La Fabbrica Blu (‘The Blue Factory’) in Campogalliano (IT) on 5th October 2019.
This special meeting evolves around Romano Artioli and the book he has recently published: Bugatti & Lotus Thriller. It tells the story of a man with a dream on four wheels. After being very succesful as an entrepeneur mr. Artioli was able to revive Bugatti and to buy Lotus Cars a few years later. In this period in the ninetees of last century both the Bugatti EB110 and the Lotus Elise were developed. Romano Artioli had La Fabricca Blu built which became a car factory role model. The path that has lead to these achievements was rocky, to say the least. Hence the book title.
Both sportscars have left an indelible footprint in automotive history, as we all know. The current Bugatti (Volkswagen) has become aware of this. Just a few days ago they have presented the Centodieci as the spiritual successor of the EB110.
Registration for the Bugatti & Lotus meeting is open. Don’t miss out on this chance to meet mr. Artioli and his family and like minded people on this site of historical importance!
