story started in January 1998 when some teachers of our school went to
Valentigney (France) for a preparatory visit of a European Project.
knowing the world of
(pedal cars) with its races, but also its
warm and hearty atmosphere, we enthusiastically decided to start a
European project as a partnership with the students and
teachers of a French and an English school with the final aim of
designing and making a ‘European pedal car’.
September 2000, on coming back from France after the successful
conclusion of the project
with the participation of the ‘European pedal car’ to the 15th
Grand Prix of Valentigney (1st Grand Prix of Europe) we had
the idea of taking Pedal Cars to Faenza.
further participations to the 2001
and 2002 races in France gave the
opportunity to other schools from Faenza and to representatives of
Ravenna Province and Faenza Municipality to know what the world of VAP
races really is.
Finally: in May 2003
the roads of the center of Faenza have been coverei from the happy
circuì of the V.a P.
Now in 2012 the 5^ European
will be possible thanks to the collaboration of
the Provincie of Ravenna, the
Municipality of Faenza
