After an absence of a year, the Minardi F1x2 cars will be among the feature attractions at the 29th Annual Bologna Motorshow, starting this Sunday, December 5, at the Centro Fieristico Bologna.

Rather than simply providing a static display, however, the team and its drivers -- on this occasion, popular Italian racers, Matteo Bobbi and Gabriele Lancieri -- will be giving 50 passenger rides around the Motor Show's specially constructed outdoor circuit, located in Area 48 of the exhibition centre.

The F1x2 runs will take place over four successive days, commencing on Sunday, with the lucky individuals nominated by Minardi commercial and technical partners.

"The team is very pleased once again to have a presence at the Bologna Motor Show and to be able to give a number of guests what will undoubtedly be the ride of a lifetime in a Minardi two-seater F1 car," says Team Principal, Paul Stoddart.

"The F1x2 programme has always been about bringing the sport of Formula One closer to the fans, and after the Misano event last week, where the team provided rides to 112 passengers, it is very appropriate to bring what has been the most successful season ever for the Minardi two-seaters to a conclusion at the high-profile Bologna Show, which takes place close to the team's Faenza factory."
