Thousands of Vespas on parade in Belfast

1 of 12

The 2018 edition of the Vespa World Days event took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, last weekend with over 3,000 participants.

Over 3,000 officially registered scooters representing 37 nations attended the event, alongside thousands more who drove from across the UK and Ireland to take part.

A parade of Vespas rode out along the famous Causeway Coast on its way to the capital, and included riders and machinery from the United States, Indonesia, Australia, Mexico, Canada and China, plus all of Europe and the Mediterranean.

Vespa Club Verona took the Vespa Trophy, a special award given to the club who best demonstrated their trip to Belfast with photos and stamps in a travel book.

The solo Vespa driver award was given for the first time to a female club member who had travelled over 6,000km from Prague.

Vespa World Days 2019 will be held in Hungary.
