    Even I have driven one in Italy. I do not believe the question was posted, actually expecting answers ;)

    BTW, how many of you know that the track shown in "The Italian Job", during the famous escape sequence the red white and blue Mini's go 3 wide on the banked rooftop race course with police in hot pursuit, is actually the roof top test track of the now defunct Fiat's Lingotto factory?

    Wow. That is some news.

    Again, I am missing this event badly. I should have come back to India for a week to cover this event? :)

    Sir.. You wont believe this. I was in US and returned 9th early morning India Time. Started to Kodai by 8AM 9th Dec with minimal sleep of say abt 3-4hrs after a 26 hr air journey.

    Twist in the tale was when myself and my wife decided to visit Palani (enroute to Kodai) and when I went to the temple - one word MAD RUSH due to Ayyappa season.. so had to go to the temple by foot instead of winch.. Reached Kodai by 11.30pm in the night. Crashed at around 12.00am to wake up to an office call by 5 am..

    So spent 10th Dec in Kodai with a mix of office work and fun..actual plan was to return only by Wednesday (12th). But destiny had other things in for me.. Stumbled upon this thread and my heart started to ache that I am missing a FIAT meet, that too, to the FIAT Factory.. Just due to this - didn't sleep until 5am in the morning today thinking of ways to make myself available to the meet..(leave, pending work from office, logistics given the fact that I was in Kodai).. Finally decided to go with the HEART to see the Factory which builds cars with a Heart and Soul..

    Checked out from Kodai forefeiting the extra money that I had paid for today.. Reached home by 6pm and started with the Office work. I have the next 24 hrs to wrap up the office work and hop onto Teky's car for the meet.

    Man, The only brand that can make a GUY to GO ON HIS KNEES. There is something in FIAT.
