FFO24 / JUNE 19 to JUNE 23, 2024

Welcome to the 41st Fiat FreakOut - FFO24!  It’s been 41 years since the first FreakOut and we’ve been celebrating our passion for all things FIAT, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, and other Italian marques ever since.

Fiat FreakOut is the National Convention of Fiat Club America. A five-day event that includes a concours car show, coordinated scenic drives, and lots of socializing. FFO24 is not just about the car show, it is a great opportunity to talk to knowledgeable people and vendor sponsors about your vehicle.

Our Host Hotel is:

Greenville Golf Resort & Conference Center / 670 Verdae Blvd, Greenville, SC 29607

FIAT FREAKOUT 2024 Hotel Booking Link2024 Fiat FreakOut Hotel

Free daily parking at the hotel lot for registered FFO attendees who are guests at the host hotel. Trailer parking is also Free and onsite.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW...

FIAT Club's special group hotel room rate is $159 plus fees and local taxes per night.

GROUP CODE: "91B"

Includes daily complimentary full course breakfast, Wi-Fi, Car/Trailer Parking, Indoor/Outdoor Pool, Fitness Center, Airport Shuttle, Tennis and 18 Hole Golf Course available (Green fees apply).

Nightly Complimentary Reception (2 Alcoholic Beverages & Appetizers per guest).

Hotel deposit & cancellation policy: No deposit required and cancellation without penalty is 2 days before check in date.  Cancellations after the no penalty date will be charged a one night room rate.

Check In: 4:00 pm / Check Out: Noon / No Smoking / Service Animals & Pets: Allowed

Our goal is to ensure those who register for FreakOut have access to hotel rooms reserved for us.  To help manage this we are asking members to register for the event at the same time as you book your hotel room. The longer you wait to book your room reservations, the higher the chances are that the hotel rooms will be fully booked.

HOTEL RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE BY MAY 19, 2024, at the latest. 

There are no refunds at any time for any reason. This is necessary as the Club makes financial commitments to the hotel and others based on actual registrations – you pay us, we pay them. 

We expect our hotel will sell out well ahead of our event date so please book sooner rather than later.

FFO24 CONCORSO d'ELEGANZA

Fiat FreakOut’s signature event has always been the Concorso show, where our cars are definitely dressed for the occasion!

FreakOut 2024 has selected the lawn by the lake at Furman University. Nestled in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Furman provides the scenic backdrop for our show. Furman is rated one of the most beautiful Campuses in the United States.

Departures for the field will begin at 9:30AM with all cars headed to the field by 10:00 AM at the latest, please. The Concorso is a 25 minute drive (10 miles) from our hotel. Each car will have a predesignated spot/marker to make placing cars a snap. The show and judging will take place between 11 AM and 2 PM, electronic voting to be completed by 2 PM (Please see voting details below).

Lunch in "Daniel Dining Hall" at Furman - 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Pay on your own at venue.

A panoramic or drone photo will be taken Friday at the Concorso show field. Cars to remain on the field until after 2 PM. We will take an (optional) afternoon drive to Saluda and Tryon, then return to the hotel.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

How we vote:

1.  All voting is done via a tool called Survey Monkey and is accessible from any smartphone on the      show field.

2. Registered members will receive separate emails the day before the show for your class ballot and owners’ choice ballots (surveys). The personalized emails are sent to the email you used to register for FreakOut. The email will contain the links you must use to vote. These links are specific to you and your car so please ask for help if you don't see them by 9 PM on Thursday. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see them in your inbox.

3. There is no manual voting at all.

4. Each registered car will have an individual dashcard in your registration bag, please insure you bring this with you to the showfield so fellow member car owners can vote for your car. Without this they will not be able to vote for you.

5. We understand there may be car changes after registration closes. While we don't encourage this we will make every effort to accomodate changes up until a week before the Concorso.  Changes made after this time are not guaranteed to be eligible for the vote.

6. Car owners must vote (and thanks) for the top cars in class, the overall best car in the show, and the car you would like to drive home. 

Please Note: Concorso awards will be given out at the awards banquet Saturday night only. Car owners must be present to win or have made arrangements for someone to pick up your award for you, the Club will not send awards to winners.

All cars must be owned and registered by the same member who is purchasing the base ticket for FreakOut. The Club reserves the right to request proof of ownership.

Register up to 6 six cars total. The Base Ticket includes 1 show car. Each additional car is $25. The Club relies on your car model description to be complete in order to place your car in the right Concorso class. For example, do not indicate that your show car is a "Fiat 500" if it is in fact a Fiat 500C Cabrio or a Fiat 500 Abarth. We want to make sure your car is in the right class. Please help us get this right.
