24 May Coppa della Perugina on Jaguar E Type
I have just returned from a weekend full of culture and beauty, spent in Umbria for the Coppa della Perugina.
My second presence at one of the most important Italian vintage car events confirmed my excellent memory of the pre-Covid edition. This time I left the Aston Martin DB6 in the garage, preferring the Jaguar E Type spider, more suited to the sunny weather expected at the weekend.
Around 130 spectacular historic cars from all over Europe were present at the Coppa, including twenty prestigious pre-war cars, and for three days they paraded among the most beautiful villages in the Perugia area, from Paciano to Assisi up to Montefalco, with a stop on Lake Trasimeno included.
Once again we made the engines roar on the track of the Autodromo di Magione and paraded between two wings of the crowd along the elegant Corso Vannucci, the “salotto” of Perugia. Always interesting is the visit to the Perugina, which this year, in addition to the museum, surprisingly included a guided tour inside the factory.
Thanks to my friend Ugo Amodeo, CAMEP president, and to all his staff for the impeccable organization of a very pleasant event, which made us leave Perugia with a smile and the promise to meet soon again.
