About the Event
This important event will be jointly organised by the Bugatti Owners' Club and Bugatti Trust to mark the special centenary of Bugattis famous win at Brescia.
The Bugatti Trust will open especially for an open morning at 9am and a toast to the win in Brescia at 10.05am and 18 seconds.
Guests will then be welcome to peruse the Bugatti Trust at their leisure and take in the current Brescia Bugatti - A Special Centenary Exhibition.
The exhibition explores the race, the cars, the differences in coach work for the racing and touring models but also one of the company’s most important employees. Ernst Friderich who was at the wheel of the winning Type 13, contributed to the history of Bugatti right from the beginning, joining Ettore as early as 1904. He also raced at Indianapolis and when Bugatti’s aero engine went to America, he oversaw its testing. After leaving Bugatti in 1924, he set up a leading dealership in Nice. Significantly he also set up a racing school with illustrious names such as Dreyfus, Wimille, Chiron, Czaykowski and Toselli on the list of past pupils.
A star exhibit is the original winner’s plaque awarded to Mr. Friderich and Bugatti on the morning of September 8th, 1921. It is part of The Bugatti Trust’s permanent collection and a most beautiful ‘Targa’. Also on display will be cars, artifacts and historic film footage from their archives showing Brescias in action.
Following this, lunch will be served in the Clubhouse, with a specially designed Italian menu;
Bocconicini , Sun Blush Tomatoes, Artichokes, Prosciutto and Olives served with a selection of Italian Breads, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Vegetarian option available
