Bugatti Club Italia visits Spain 2006

In 2006, my family and I had the great pleasure of visiting Spain.

It was a fabulous trip, filled with amazing futball (soccer), amazing people, amazing food, amazing art and amazing scenery.

Towards the end of our trip, on our way back to Barcelona, we stayed in the fabulous village of Morella, about 3 hours west of Barcelona. It was dramatic and picturesque, and the drive there was stimulating.

On our second day, while sitting down for tapas and cerveza, we heard an engine sound like I've never before ... the sound of riping callico! The Bugatti Club Italia arrived in town, part of their organized tour of the Valencia region of Spain.

There were T23's, T35's, T37's, T40's and a T55, nine in all, followed a Porsche 356 Spyder support car and famed British Bugatti restorer Malcolm Gentry in an equipment van.

It was a very impressive gathering in a very dramatic setting!
