EVENT - RøMø MOTOR FESTIVAL






















     Romo Motor Festival in Danemark shot by David Carlo

   ''For a long time it has been a dream to revive the history of Danish vintage motor racing and, in particular,beach racing.
   In the years 1919-1924 the island of Fanø gave home to some of the most legendary riders and drivers, Europe had to offer. Makers such as Mercedes, Citröen, Fiat, Opel and many more were represented, although almost all were in the hands of private daredevils.
   Sadly the races on the beach of Fanø came to an end, with the tragic death of a 15 year old boy, by a tire lost from the wheel of Sir Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird racer. Campbell did, however, set records at over 130mph on the 1km stretch.''
