Alfa Romeo is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Monza circuit

Alfa Romeo will be present this weekend in Monza to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the famous Autodrome, and its first Tribe Day, an international event that will bring together fans of the brand from all over Europe.

The legends of Alfa Romeo and the Monza circuit are closely linked, the cloverleaf brand having won many successes at this famous track, including its first Formula 1 title on September 3, 1950.
100 years of the Monza circuit and 112 years of Alfa Romeo history will therefore be celebrated through the presence of members of the brand’s official clubs, each represented by an emblematic car.

The event will also host no less than 100 models of the Giulia GTA, one of the Italian manufacturer’s most iconic cars. The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA embodied Alfa Romeo’s highest sporting achievements, playing a key role in the brand’s success in motorsport.

This model, which made its first race at the 1000 kilometers of Monza in 1965, achieved more success on the Italian track during the 4 Hours of Monza (one of the most important events in the world for Turismo cars) with the Giulia Sprint GTA of De. Adamich-Zeccoli which dominated the race, followed by six other Giulia GTA chassis. Four victories would follow during these 4 Hours of Monza, as well as success in the Coppa Piemonte and Inter-Europa (including the Giulia Sprint GTA-SA and GTA 1300 Junior versions).

Two main parades on the program

Tribal Days will take place in two of the brand’s emblematic locations: at the Arese Museum, where participants will delve into the brand’s storied history and discover the gems of the museum’s collection, and at the Balocco Proving Ground, where they will take part in road tests, parades and track exercises that demonstrate the powerful capabilities of their Alfa Romeo.

Alfa Romeo Tribal Day highlights will also take the form of two parades. The first will take place on Saturday afternoon inside the Monza circuit, and 112 historic cars will be presented on the track where the F1 seats will compete during the same weekend.

The second parade will take place the following morning, when 112 historic cars and 100 Giulia GTAs will leave the Arese Museum and cross the city of Milan passing emblematic areas. The parade will stop exactly where Portello, Alfa Romeo’s first production site, stood at the turn of the century.

Finally the parade will reach the circuit of Monza where all participants will attend the Grand Prix for which the Alfa Romeo F1 ORLEN team has prepared a special operation: the C42 seats of Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu will surely enter the record and specially designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo for this Italian Grand competition Price.
