Hello friends of historic motorcycles!
This year's FIVA World Motorcycle Event is a 3-day touring event along the steep mountain roads of Brasov, just in the center of Romania, organized by Retromobil Club Romania (ANF). Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, Brașov (named Kronstadt in the past, for presentation click here and select your language) is one of the most beautiful and visited places in Romania. Brasov is a fascinating place in any season. History, culture, architecture are elements that will surprise you everywhere.
During the event we will ride our bikes on a medieval route to spectacular places like Peles Royal Castle, Pelisor Castle, Rasnov Fortress, Prejmer Fortified Church, Sinaia Monastery, Bran Castle - home of famous Count Dracula, Harman Fortified Church, most of them part of UNESCO World Heritage. Surprising museums such as Cernat (Exhibition of agricultural tools and machines, radios and other ) and Bran Village Museum will also catch our sight along the ride.
Join us in discovering the Romanian hospitality, the fascinating Romanian traditions and folklore, the unspoiled and wild beauty of the Carpathians and the flavors of the Romanian cuisine.
The RETROMOBIL CLUB ROMANIA team is at your disposal and promises to organize a memorable event. We are glad to welcome you as our guests in Romania at FIVA World Motorcycle Event 2022!
Brasov and Sinaia are two cities with a rich history in motorsport and in the two and four-wheeled vehicle manufacturing industry. Both cities have been hosting hill climb races for almost a century, until the beginning of World War II motorcycles were a constant presence. Brasov is the city where in 1935 was organized the first mixed Grand Prix for cars and motorcycles in Romania. In Brasov and its surroundings operated the factories that produced the “IAR” fighter jets (they also made a series of motorcycle prototypes), the “Roman” and “Red Flag” trucks, the “Universal” tractors. The hotel that will host the event is located in the area of the former aircraft factory, converted after the war into a factory that produced tractors. The “Carfil“ factory made in Brasov (under “Weber” and Solex licenses) different types of carburettors for all vehicles produced in Romania. The “Metrom” plant also operated in the Brasov area, producing the’ “Carpati” and “Mobra” motorcycles. The factory which produced ARO off-road cars is also in this part of Romania. Unfortunatelly all these factories, which have exported their products to over 75 countries on all continents, are only history today. This year marks the 95th anniversary of the founding of the first motorcycle club in Romania, “Moto Clubul Roman” who had sections in Timisoara, Oradea, BRASOV, Sibiu and Chisinau. Honorary President of the was A.S.R. Prince Nicolas (uncle of HM King Michael). According to the yearbook published by FIM in 2004 on the occasion of the centenary Romania founded in 1934 the first motorcycle federation in the world. We could not conclude without mentioning that His Majesty King Michael (1921-2017), Honorary President of Retromobil Club Romania, was born in Sinaia at Peles Castle, a location he often visited while riding a motorcycle.
Hotel Qosmo, located in Brasov, Zaharia Stancu Street, nr 4, will host the participants at the event.
Qosmo is 4-star hotel opened in 2021. The hotel offers a high level of services and has enough free parking space. For the motorcycles we will organize a secured tent.
