After the Elegance Contest of Historical Cars was held in Sinaia on June 30, other two “horsepower” festivals will take place also on Prahova Valley in the first week of July. We’re talking about the Mustang assault, since these cars can be seen in Sinaia at the beginning of this week, and about a new edition of the BMW Festival to be held in Azuga, during the weekend.
The horsepower can be seen on the streets of Sinaia on July 2 and 3, in an outstanding parade, at the first edition of “Mustang Fest” Sinaia 2018. On this occasion, those who will be present can see more than 50 Mustang cars on which they will be able to receive any information sparking everyone’s curiosity. The four-wheel jewelries could be admired on Monday, July 2, in the Casino Sinaia’s courtyard, as well as in the Telegondola parking lot. Since there will be also a parade of these vehicles, the road traffic will be interrupted on July 3, on the Carol I Boulevard (the Aosta roundabout – the Petrom Station roundabout) and on the Octavian Goga Street to the Heroes Cemetery, from 11.00 to 14.00, as well as on the Pelesului Alley and Saniusului Street, from 14.00 to 16.00. This is the first international event organized by the Ford Mustang Romania Association together with the German club „Generation 6 FORD MUSTANG S550 GROUP <est. 2015>”, in partnership with the Sinaia Municipality.
“After the most beautiful vintage cars could be admired at the Elegance Contest, while waiting a speeding event, the National Coast Speed Championship – Sinaia Trophy, to be held at the end of June, now we can enjoy a parade of some outstanding cars. Thus, Sinaia brings again to the forefront something that makes Romania to be proud, given that the first Mustang was designed by a Romanian” stated the Mayor of Sinaia, Vlad Oprea.
Only a few days after the Mustang parade, also on Prahova Valley, another horsepower exhibition will take place. We’re talking about BMW E30 Fest 2018 Azuga, which will be organized between July 6 and 8. The festival will be held at the base of the Sorica ski slope; people can admire over 200 BMW E30 cars and the same number of stories, since some of the vehicles are rare, endangered pieces, such as M3 or ALPINA. The organizers announced that the event will turn into a real festival for all ages and tastes, and people will enjoy three days of fun, with live concerts held by the most famous Romanian hip-hop bands, late afterparties, campfires, stand-up comedy, contests, etc. Given that Prahova Valley is one of the most famous and appreciate holiday destinations in Romania, the organizers of the events, some of them being international events, focus on the Prahova County exactly because they know that the region is appreciated both by the Romanian and foreign tourists. The best proof in this respect is the event of June 30 from Sinaia, when the Elegance Contest of Historical Cars took place. More specifically, one of the main Romanian tourism agencies specialized in incoming activities, “Invitation Romania”, brought at the event in Sinaia tourists from UK, Germany, Russia and Italy, as well as groups from Asian countries and from the Romania-Bulgaria common circuit. The attractions were, on the one hand, the “horsepower” of the historical cars, and on the other hand, the ambiance provided by this event that was held in a special place, on the domain of the renowned Peles Castle. Besides, the foreign tourists couldn’t refuse an offer like the one in Sinaia, since they could see 35 high-value cars, the oldest one being since 1921 – Renault Type 2 Torpedo, and the newest being since 1987; the others were included in the categories: “Prewar Cabriolet”, “Prewar Sedan”, “Postwar Sedan”, “Postwar Cabriolet”, “Postwar Coupe”, as well as those in the category “Made in Romania”. Moreover, the awarding ceremony took place within a gala that was organized in interwar style, at Casino Sinaia, which is another attraction for the tourists coming in Sinaia. Another thing was also important, namely the fact that the first historical edition of this contest was held in 1934, also under the High Patronage of the Romanian Royal House, which continues, the tradition being resumed in 2011; the edition held on June 30, 2018, was the eighth edition of this event.
