Italian Connection Honour Guard!
Several members of IMSMC took part in a historic event on the morning of the 23rd of May.
The Italian connection rally is in the spirit of the Mille Miglia 1,000 Rally across Europe which this year began just one week ago in Italy.The rally is a three day event that for the first time will link Australia’s two most famous Little Italy precincts - Norton Street, Leichhardt and Lygon Street, Melbourne.
After few traffic hassles (as can be expected traveling into Leichardt at 8am!) we made our way to the forum underground car park, amid media, celebrities and car enthusiasts alike!
At around 11am, we were given then go ahead by organizers to follow the entrants of the rally through the streets of Leichardt and onto the Freeway toward Melbourne.
