- Get ready 'for the screech of motorcycle tyres' in Turin

February 12, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News divulges it is known as being the motorcycle capital of Italy, so perhaps it is only fitting that Turin is also the host of the annual Torino Motofest.

Fans of anything to do with engines, two wheels and a bit of dirt should ensure that they have their Turin hotels booked ahead of this popular event, which is bound to draw in the crowds.

Held at the Oval Lingotto, What's on When informs that the event takes place from 10:00 local time until midnight, so visitors are likely to find that they have a whole day of entertainment waiting for them to enjoy.

There will be free-style contests, motocross displays and "absolutely everything for the serious motorist" bringing plenty of adrenaline and heart-stopping moments to the event, the travel website continues.

Furthermore, people will get the chance to get on a bike and go for a spin in the test drive zone.

With special guest Jorge Lorenzo, who made his motorcycle championship debut on his 15th birthday before becoming the most successful Spanish rider of all time in the 250cc GP category, making an appearance in 2009, this year's event could try to beat that by being bigger and better than ever.

If you're heading to the Torino Motofest this year, we strongly advise that you book your hotel Torino as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
