06.05.2007 TURKISH ALFA ROMEO ENTHUSIASTS
GET TOGETHER FOR ISTANBUL PICNIC
Romeo fan site alfistiturkey.com organized a picnic at
Polonezkoy, Istanbul last Sunday. And it turned into the the
most successful meeting ever organised by the Alfa Romeo
enthusiasts' "community" in Turkey, with more than 80 Alfa
Romeo car and over 200 Alfisti attending the whole
the day off meeting up on the Asian and European sides of
the city of Istanbul, all the Alfa Romeo’s that had turned
up to take part in the day's programme formed into a convoy.
The participants were kept busy during the day exchanging
their many views on each others' Alfa Romeos. They also had
fun by enjoying the various activities organised by the Alfistiturkey community. The day's main
programme took place in an area that had been specially
prepared for the Alfisti.
Many members also had a chance to win different gifts
including car alarms, parking sensors, car care products and
various discount checks. The gems of the event were
unquestionably a 1969 Duetto and a 1971 Veloce, both models
which are rarely seen in Turkey.
The picnic took place in Polonezkoy (aka Adampol) which
means 'Polish Village', which lies in the north east of
Istanbul, surrounded by beautiful forests. Polonezkoy was
found during 19th century by Prince Adam
Czartorsky in order to establish a Polish community within
Ottoman empire. The village continued
to develop during the 19th century and the
total number of inhabitants today
has reached around 1,000
people of Polish origin.
Alfistiturkey.com was founded 2 years ago to establish a
completely free and independent platform that would strive
promote the Alfa Romeo spirit in Turkey. Over the past two
years, the site has organised many events with the support
of Alfa Romeo Turkey. The site currently serves as the
official forum of the Turkish AROC.
