Greetings and welcome to the 55nd running of the FIAT NATIONALS, hosted by the Fiat Car Club of Victoria at Winton and Shepparton We extend a very warm welcome to all competitors, spectators, family and friends.
The Fiat Clubs from all around Australia continue their proud history of coming together to celebrate the FIAT Marque and friendly motorsport competition. The competition is always keen, but beyond is an underlying sense of friendship and camaraderie that makes our Nationals so special.
This is the first time the FIAT Nationals event has been based in Shepparton where all accommodation, social activities and competition events except the Supersprint will be located. The Supersprint will again be held at WINTON RACEWAY which is only 60km from Shepparton. As the Supersprint will be held on the Friday and we have organised for general practise at Winton on the Thursday. We expect competitors to make their way to Winton Raceway first and at the conclusion of the Sprint travel the 60KM to Shepparton to settle in to their accommodation at the Hotel in time for the traditional welcome on the Friday evening in Shepparton.
As always our key objective is that everyone has a wonderful time catching up with old Fiat friends and meeting new ones, the primary aim is broad participation with a spirit of competition, in a fun and safe manner.
The Organising Committee has been working hard to make this year’s “FIAT Nationals”, as the event has become known, a pleasant and memorable event for all concerned. In recent years the event has developed into this format of a relaxed three day weekend that combines the Fiat of Italy Cup Motorkhana, a FIAT car display for the local town that incorporates the Show n Shine competition for competitors, and the highly sought after Supersprint.
We express our gratitude to our event sponsors who are currently being organised. It’s through their generous support that the “NATIONALS” weekend is possible.
We will have event entry details and Supplementary Regulations out shortly, so please bear with us until then. Feel free to let us know of your intention to enter and we will send you the documents personally.
Details of the accommodation follow this letter. Mention the Fiat Nationals when booking to ensure the special rates.
