Fiat nationals rev up for 50th edition

FIAT cars have been in existence for 114 years.

And for the last 50, the Fiat nationals have been the perfect way to celebrate the unique car maker in Australia.

This weekend (today to Sunday), Ipswich is privileged to host the 50th edition of the Fiat nationals on at the Ipswich Motorsport Precinct, Willowbank.

Fiat owners and enthusiasts from six states will descend upon Queensland Raceway for the first time since the events' introduction in 1964.

The weekend encompasses a variety of competitive and social events, including a timed sprint at Queensland Raceway tomorrow, with the 50th running of the 'Fiat of Italy Cup' Autokhana and Show 'n' Shine competition on Sunday.

Additional social events and visits to local attractions are also planned throughout the weekend. For many years, the event was actively supported by Fiat Italy, the Australian distributor and Fiat dealers of the time.

Fiat Italy provided the trophy for the 'Fiat of Italy Cup', which in itself is an incredible piece of motorsport memorabilia from European racing of the 1920s.

A vast collection of images and motorsport paraphernalia highlighting the history of the 'Fiat of Italy Cup' competition will be the centre point for past attendees to reminisce and renew old friendships.

The recent acquisition of the major share of Chrysler by Fiat has refuelled the interest of the Australian motoring public in the Fiat marque.

This weekend provides an opportunity for like-minded people to get together and enjoy their cars and test their vehicles in a controlled environment.
