It is almost impossible to think of Italy and not think of its fabulous motor industry and race courses, yet few people seem to realise that the “creme de la creme” of this industry, is all based in the same region, Emilia-Romagna, those in the industry have named the birth place of speed and engines as “Motor Valley”.
