Idea Auto Italia- Brooklands May 2nd

Just received this email from Phil Ward at Auto Italia (I think he's included me becasue of my lame attempts to get a 155 area set up for Stamford Hall last year):

BROOKLANDS SPRING ITALIAN CAR FESTIVAL

Sunday May 2nd

Redevelopment of the Vickers runway at Brooklands has been brought forward
which means that the track day we had planned for this April has been
postponed until 2007! However, a one day event will go ahead on Sunday May
2nd.

There will be Italian car displays arranged in the paddock in front of the
Club House, on the restored banked track and on grassed areas within the
boundaries of the main museum area. Demonstrations of selected cars will
take place on the Test Hill throughout the day.

The featured marque this year is Alfa Romeo and a number of historic,
classic and competition cars have been invited to form a display in the
paddock. There will also be a special Alfetta feature, in celebration of the
modelıs 30th anniversary.

Other major displays will include supercars from Ferrari, Maserati,
Lamborghini and De Tomaso, and special club areas for Alfa Romeo, Lancia and
the Fiats owners' clubs.

Entry to this exciting event will also include admission to all the motoring
and aviation exhibitions. There will also be an extensive trade area and
autojumble and refreshments will be available from the museumıs restaurant.

Entry is £9 per adult payable at the main entrance on the day. For enquiries
concerning trade stands and autojumble please call Ruth Dunham on Tel: 01707
273999 x 244 or email [email protected]

Is there any plans for an Alfaowner presence at this event? If not shall we try and get a 155 display organised?

Re: Auto Italia- Brooklands May 2nd

I will probably go, as I always do to these things, but I still wince at the price every time. The last one, in October 2003, was very low key in my opinion with the only memorable point was the poor sod in the Tipo 16V who lost a screw from his dizzy cap half way up the hill and ground to a spluttering halt!

In fairness the summer event was a cracking event but its the people that turned up rather than the organisers who havent got a clue! Why put a bunch of numb nuts on to direct cars to their designated areas when they dont know what the cars are! This happens EVERY time! - Should I put this in the new rant section

I hope to make it to this event, I went to the October 2003 one which I thought wasnt bad, although I thought the autojumble was very poor!. I do quite enjoy Brooklands anyway so will look forward to it.

I have only been to two Italian car events these being the October 2003 Brooklands and the Alfa spring day last year at Chatham, what other events do people recomend? The autojumble was quite poor at both events when compared to other events I have been too.

Regards
Lee

Hopefully I'll be there, it is a long time since I've been to Brooklands so I'm due for another visit.
