A bright fresh morning in Barga with the sound of the birds singing in the trees and the temperature gradually rising. From afar comes a new sound, a low hum which gradually gets louder the closer it comes until with a deep roar around the corner comes in to view 16 high performance sports cars. The Lotus meeting in barga was off and running.
As you can hear in the interview below with the assessore of tourism - Gabriele Giovannetti, this was a meeting of the Lotus owners club on a regional level with talks underway for organising a larger meeting on a national level here in Barga.
