[YesAuto News] A few days ago, according to foreign media reports, the elegant competition of the Villa d'Este, Italy was cancelled. The event is held every May on the shore of Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy. As Italy was particularly severely affected by the coronavirus this year, this event was postponed to October. Not long ago, foreign media reported that the organizers had cancelled the 2020 event.
The official statement stated that: as the participation of automakers has attracted a global audience, the organization of events and the details of the plan requires multi-party cooperation. The outbreak of the new coronavirus has disrupted the global rhythm, so it is difficult to predict what will happen in two months, so don't mind the missing autumn event.
The Este Estate Elegance Competition was held in Villa Este Ecoganso, located in Cernobbio, Italy. The first competition was held in 1929. In recent years, as BMW has actively participated in this event, it has played an important organizational role, and has driven concept cars from other manufacturers to participate in the show here. In addition, the event also showcased impressive classic European cars of all ages, as well as classic motorcycles.
According to the previous plan, this year's exhibition will be divided into eight special sessions, including celebrating the anniversary of Pininfarina, the iconic Italian design studio, and celebrating the birth of supercars in the 1990s. With the cancellation of the 2020 event, the Sister Manor Elegant Competition will be scheduled to be held in 2021. The current exhibition date has been set from May 28 to May 30, 2021.
