Alfa Lovers Day (part 1)

What happens when you bring to the Hockenheim Ring a couple of very passionate people to have a taste of what Alfa Romeo means? What do you get when you mix Italian emotions with German sense of organisation? Can the dragon be tamed? Alfa Romeo Deutschland answered to all these questions and then more by organising the event “Alfa Lovers Day” on the Formula 1 circuit hosting the German GP. The event was meant to be...
