8.15pm Cuneo is a quiet town sprawled over the foothills of the Alps, some 22 miles from the French border. Quite by accident, we have rolled into its central piazza on the night of Cuneo's biggest annual festival. The square is rocking, packed with thousands of partygoers and dozens of stalls representing just about every nation on earth - Indonesia, Nicaragua, Somalia. But it's our envoys from the People's Republic of Horsepower that are centre of attention. In seconds, our mini-convoy becomes submerged under a sea of revellers, everyone wanting to be a little part of our daft, wonderful little event.
