Neatly arranged according to the brands were some of the most precious jewels tucked away in different parts of India. Most were from companies that no longer exist, but whose legacy after this event, will continue for generations.On entering the venue, what unfolded was a history lesson like no other. The eyes first went to a giant screen that articulated the meaning of ‘Historic Vehicles’ and the Federation’s role to Preserve, Protect and Promote them. Then clippings portraying the stories and legacies of brands like Royal Enfield, TVS Racing and Harley Davidson played. Moving along, the display began with the ‘Modern Classics’ (Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki) then Rajdoot, Sunbeam and Royal Enfield.Right in the [...]

FIVA Best Preserved Award in Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance 2019

The chosen vehicle was an amazing 1922 Lancia Lambda
The FIVA Best Preserved Award 2019 was presented in Villa d’Este to a 1928 LANCIA LAMBDA SERIE VIII, with a V4 Engine, 2569cc, 69 hp at 3500 rom Coachwork: Four-Seater Torpedo, owned by Anthony MacLean, from Switzerland. Compared with the technical benchmarks of its era, the Lancia Lambda presented in 1922 was one of the most advanced automobiles of all times. There is simply no room to enu- merate all its innovations here. Let’s just say that the Lambda had the first unitary body ever built and defined the layout that only became established gradually as the standard three decades later. Around 11 000 units were created up to 1931 in nine model series. This car is one of six that Lancia prepared as works cars for entry in the Mille Miglia in 1928 — and probably the only one that survives to this day. Three years after the murderous competition it came into the hands of a British owner. He kept the Torpedo for more than 40 years, using it as a tourer between England and Switzerland up until 1939. His travels put nearly 300 000 kilometres on the clock. Before Villa d’Este, this 91 years old lady had just finished the Mille Miglia!FIVA Logo: 
The Legislation Commission (LC) met on 11 and 12 May in Romania’s capital Bucharest. The meeting was hosted by FIVA’s ANF Retromobil Club Romania (RCR). By convening in Romania the LC implemented for the first time a concept that was presented to the 2018 General Assembly in Gibraltar. That is to have LC meetings in the country which at that time has the EU Presidency. According to a rotation scheme each of the EU Member States is EU President country for a half calendar year. In that period it leads all EU Council meetings and has a more influential role on the EU agenda.It offers the country the chance to put itself in the picture and makes it the first country to approach for interest representation too. The EU arena is FIVA’s sole multinational governmental playing field. For protecting the right to make use of public roads it is therefore essential that FIVA acts directly with EU politicians and policy makers, but for achieving results good cooperation with FIVA’s ANF’s and other national members in the EU Member States is very important too. So it makes sense to tighten relations with our members in the EU, to visit them and to learn about their concerns. So did the LC in Bucharest. RCR’s president mr Bogdan Coconoiu rep [...]
