A successful tradition of car racing in Buzet dates from the early fifties, when a group of enthusiasts decided to organize a racing. Taking into consideration that in those days you could number the car owners on the fingers of a hand, this was a courageous move. Along a few “Topolinos”, the majority of cars belonged to local firms and were used for business trips. From those days people remember a carting race which included drivers from five European countries. Furthermore, Buzet was mapped put as the place with skill-driving regional championship. Apart from frequent racing events, Buzet had a very successful racing-car “crew” which included Đani Sverko, then one of the most known drivers, Zvjezdan Nezic, Serđo Sverko and Mario Poropat.

Up to 1972, when Auto-Moto Society of Buzet was founded, car enthusiasts beneath Cicarija worked in various inadequate conditions, which demanded additional involvement in preparations of events. Nevertheless, they always strived to do their best and fulfil the given tasks. The end of the seventies marked the coming of the new, young generation, potential competitors and organizers, who began taking care of the events anew, within the event of “Buzetski dani”, the Days of Buzet. At first, the events had the nature of touristic, rally ones, of both national and international character. The races took place all around Buzet and were open to everybody. Little by little, the small events were replaced by one – bigger and more significant. As it was estimated Buzet had the best possibilities for organizing such an event, the local race took over.
