Space City Panteras, in close cooperation with the Houston Ferrari and Lamborghini clubs and the Pantera Club of North Texas, is announcing an all Italian car event: The Italian Automobile Festival of Speed, February 27-29, 2004 at Texas World Speedway in Bryan, Texas. The IAFS represents an evolution of the Pantera focus of a previous TWS track event (Southwest Pantera Extravaganza) into a new venue featuring the entire range of exotic Italian automobiles (Detomaso, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, etc.). The Italian Automobile Festival of Speed activities for 2004 are intended to cater to all automotive enthusiasts. IAFS activities include an arrival reception, an all Italian car show, organized scenic drives through forested countryside, a tour and wine tasting at the Messinahoff Winery, and an awards dinner at Cenares (an excellent local Italian restaurant). For the track junkies, either one or two days of driving instruction and track time are offered on the challenging 2.9 mile road course at Texas World Speedway at substantially reduced rates. Discounted hotel accommodations have also been arranged. IAFS-2004 activities are offered 'ala carte' style - you choose the activities that you most want to participate in. The Italian Automobile Festival of Speed is an extraordinary event that you will not want to miss. The IAFS agenda and registration forms are available on the Space City Panteras website: www.spacecitypanteras.com. Hotel accomodations are limited, so make your reservations soon.
