A LONG LIST OF SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS HAD BEEN ORGANISED BY EBERHARD & CO., STARTING WITH THE CONFIRMED AND EAGERLY AWAITED PRESENCE OF TWO-TIME WORLD RALLY CHAMPION MIKI BIASION, THE MAISON’S BRAND AMBASSADOR, WHO FORMED A SPECIAL CREW TOGETHER WITH THE GENERAL MANAGER OF EBERHARD & CO., MARIO PESERICO.
