Following the success of the recent riviera adventure free competition, we’re doing it all again, only this time in the alps! The Alpine Adventure is a unique driving event that takes in the best Alpine passes in Switzerland and Italy, as well as the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
There are no time constraints or destination arrival deadlines – this is a fun, social driving experience where like-minded petrol heads can get away from it all by driving, dining and telling each other far-fetched stories about their cars, daily exploits and past adventures. Couples are welcome, as is a casual dress code!
