13:th Vernasca Silver Flack / Italy 27-29.06

This were the 13:th Silver Flack Historic hillclimb parade! in a very beautiful little village called Vernasca.

This is one of the biggest events in Italy and maybe biggest "parade"!

In Finland when we have a parade, we all drive very slowly and plaplapla.....ok.

In Italy and in Silver Flack... oy boy.. ALL DRIVES LIKE IN RACE! Even the Polis drivers with their own cars!

I am very happy to see that kinde of passion for POLIS!! They even stopt the trafick in the center of village for "varming these slowly race cars like Ford GT 40, Porsche prototype, Ferrari F1 and so one...", in the middle of the village!!

I have an thought for this event before we start( Me and my wife Tarja) our trip in this event. I was so out with my thoughts, SO OUT!!

When Patrick and Nathalie (Boislivau) invaite us in this trip, we immidiatly say jes! Patrick has been 9 times in this event so he knews this event.

You readers must remember Patrick and Nathalie but still.. Patrick is the webmaster in www.r8gordini.com site in France and they were our quests in G-Forum Ice Track days 2008 in Rovaniemi. Patrick is allso knewn for his "De Verez" prototype car. With De Verez Patrick were driving in Silver Flack in this year.
