More than 550
cars gathered for AlfaCity07, Central Europe’s
biggest Alfa Romeo event, which took place in Esztergom
(Hungary) last weekend. But this during this edition of the
rapidly-growing event it was not just the massed ranks of
Alfa Romeos that captured the attention. A Lamborghini
Espada, a Lancia Delta Integrale and a Ferrari F430
Challenge race car were also big stars of the Hungarian
meeting alongside two original former Italian "Carabinieri"
75s, a glorious Montreal from 1971, a black RZ which had
come from Switzerland to take part and of course the newest
Alfa Romeo, the Spider which was brought to the event by the
national importer of the brand, and the main sponsor of the
event, Fiat Auto Magyarország Kft.
The centre of the little town of Esztergom was turned into a
real "Alfa City" for the gathering last weekend, hence the
event's new name, AlfaCity07. Hungarian Alfisti
set another record this year, never before had come so much
Alfa Romeo cars to an event being held in the region. It
wasn’t an objective of the organisers to set up a meeting
with so many participants arriving, but this now-annual
meeting has the curiosity and a rapidly-building tradition
in Hungary. So it wasn’t a surprise, that more than 550 cars
gathered for this event.
The 31st of March, the date chosen for AlfaCity07,
was also the first day of good weather this year, and the
AlfaAmore.hu website was also celebrating it’s 3rd
anniversary too. More than a hundred participants came from
the surrounding countries, such as Slovakia, Serbia,
Croatia, Austria and Germany.

More than 550 cars, led out by the brand new Alfa
Spider, gathered for AlfaCity07, Central Europe’s
biggest Alfa Romeo meeting, which took place in
Esztergom (Hungary) last weekend.
The biggest Hungarian Alfa Romeo car and accessory suppliers
introduced themselves to the visitors at the AlfaCity07
event with an array of stands and displays, including
Csigi-Bege Autópláza, Autóház Budaörs and Autófórum Riegler.
This year we organised a navigational contest (as we had
last year) for the Alfisti, but we made some changes.
Now the starters had to find the targets with the "help" of
an outline map, which made thing harder (many more people
said it was harder to find the objectives than last year).
And for the participants who didn’t want to take part in
this contest we offered three different test sheets about
the Italian gastronomy, Alfa Romeo history and AlfaAmore.hu.
Meanwhile the event was wrapped up on a lighter note as two
of our members, NaTo and Andus chose the occasion to present
a brand new song, written especially for the Alfisti,
which is called “The Alfa Rap”. We all hope that this song
is going to be a hit in our midst. For more information
