The Pininfarina name has always been fondly associated with the design of some of the world’s most iconic automobiles since the 1930’s. Following in his father Battista Farina’s footsteps Sergio Pininfarina went on to design some of the cars that have changed the world of automotive history. Sergio Pininfarina and Enzo Ferrari forged a special relationship, which led to the creation of many Italian masterpieces, including the revolutionary mould breaking designs that included the legendary Ferrari engines mounted behind the driver.

His designs began with the Dino Berlinetta Speciale right through to the pinnacle of modern day cars, such as the Enzo, a virtual F1 race car that has been shoe horned into an everyday road car. The dialectic exchange between Ferrari and a design house such as Pininfarina, today the only independent Italian coach-builder, has helped to define the most beautiful cars of all times in an evolution that has lasted 60 years and is still going strong.

Sadly on the 3rd of July 2012 aged 85 Sergio Pininfarina died at his home in Turin, Italy. The Brokerslcub Tribute, to honour this great man and the Pininfarina name begins with a gathering of the largest group of Pininfarina designed cars and a special Brokersclub Tribute Cup Polo tournament at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club, in Ewhurst Surrey in the UK which is to take place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2013 with free entry to those who bring their Pininfarina cars. Brokersclub is a cooperation partner of POLO+10.

The owner of the Polo Club is Kenney Jones Drummer of ‘Small Faces, The Faces and The Who’ who has invited fellow celebrity Pininfarina enthusiasts to include Nick Mason, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and Chris Evans. Kenney Jones and his band ‘The Jones Gang’ will grace the stage in a one off special tribute concert on the Saturday night.

A highlight of the event will be the presence of Sergio’s son Paolo, now Chairman of the Pininfarina design house, who has offered the presence of Pininfarina’s latest creation concept car called ‘Sergio’ which he will unveil for the first time in the UK at Tribute Rally launch on Saturday 1st June.

The tribute continues later this year in the form of a rally of Pininfarina designed cars starting in London and continuing on to Monaco. With pit-stops to include the Pininfarina factory set in Cambiano, Italy and on to the Ferrari at Maranello, Italy.

The car exhibition is open to any Pininfarina designed cars and has already attracted considerable interest. This will be an amazing experience and a fitting tribute to Sergio and certainly one to put in the diary.
