We’re very excited to announce the first official Australian Vespa Days to be held at Wangaratta, Victoria next March, and in association with Vespa Australia and the Vespa World Club.
All Australian and international Vespa friends are invited for three days of Vespa celebration. We’re still organizing but there’s plenty to read on the event link http://tix.yt/vespa – Program, Accommodation, and Ride Outs.
We urge to you to ticket and arrange accommodation early to avoid disappointment, and to start thinking about how you will travel there. This event is in development with so much more to come. You’re welcome.
