2016 will be the 70th anniversary of the Vespa scooter, April 1946 being when the Vespa 98 made its debut.
There will no doubt be many celebrations next year, but the biggest here in England is likely to be this Vespa Club of Britain rally to the home of Douglas built Vespa scooters, Bristol.
The date is 15-17 July 2016 and as the advert states, VCB members will learn more in future editions of the club magazine.
