It looks like I will be around that weekend, so I will bring a few cars. Haven't decided what yet, but will certainly bring the Dino so that we can have a GTS alongside a recent GT that has just arrived in town! I am assuming said individual will bring his Dino GT and not any of his other modern cars.

Hello all,

Another Motori Italiani event is in the books! And this was surely one of our best ever... the weather was perfect and we had an amazing array of cars and motorcycles in the show field.

Of course, this event could not have been a success without YOU. Participants and visitors alike make this a great gathering each year.

As always, special thanks do go out to a number of folks as well:

Jim Calandro with the Desmo club is my right hand when it comes to putting on this show. He has done a fantastic job each year reigning in the cycling community. Well shown this year with many beautiful examples!

John Abel, Brian Caughman, and Chris Griffin got the cars checked in and helped position everyone.

Of course, 131 Main has been our host venue since the inception back in 2007. They welcome us with open arms each year and we're certainly made to feel welcome. And we get some great food for lunch to boot!

Automotive International is both our primary sponsor for this event and also graciously hosts the traditional "After Party" BBQ at their facilities. Not to mention making sure many of the cars you saw Saturday were in tip-top condition for show day. This year's BBQ was held in their new facility off South Tryon which was perfect!

We also need to acknowledge the vendors that came out and added so much to the festival feel of the day:

Dan McCrary Automotive Art
GMP Performance
Lamborghini Carolinas
Maserati of Charlotte
Matthews Fun Machines
MTS Drive Automotive Photography
Stateline Fiat/Alfa Romeo

And I know you all want to know the voting results, so here they are:

Ferrari Vintage:
Glenn Butler - 1972 Dino 246 GTS

Ferrari Classic 8-Cylinder:
Greg Hames - 1981 308 GTSi

Ferrari Modern 8-Cylinder:
Ed Bowers - 2015 458 Spider

Ferrari 12-Cylinder:
Glenn Butler - 1982 512 BBi

Lamborghini:
Michael Jetzer - 1967 P400 Miura

Alfa Romeo:
Steve Schwartz - 1968 Spider Veloce 1750

Specialty Automobile:
Willem Oosthoek - 1963 Maserati 3500GT

Ducati:
Rick Lee - 1981 900 Mike Hailwood Replica

Specialty Motorcycle:
Julian Peralta - 2016 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800rr

Ladies' Choice:
Julian Peralta - 2016 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster 800rr

Best in Show:
Darren Frank - 1969 Iso Grifo

Congrats to all the winners!

We look forward to having you all again next year!!
