The Great Western Alfa Day 10th Sept

Info thanks to R30MEO from the AROC
Latest News:-
This year the South West's premier summer event will be held beside the museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon. The Great Western Alfa Day will have something for everyone. This great venue, flanked by the Great Western Railway Museum and the Designer Outlet Shopping Centre, has many advantages which will be appreciated by all visiting Alfisti: There will be reserved Register and Section parking (on application), on the spacious, gravelled, exclusively Alfa Romeo, display areas. The AROC club shop will also be open for business.
There will be plentiful refuge from inclement or excessively hot weather. The Designer Shopping centre has plentiful catering outlets, children's play facilities and a farmer's market. The superb railway museum will be a great attraction as there can be surely no better time to visit than in this, the 200th anniversary of I. K. Brunel's birth..

The event will run from 10 am. until 5 pm. Entrance cost will be 2 per car to cover expenses. Access is by easily followed routes: From M4 J16 follow the brown 'Outlet Village' signs on the Great Western Way and Kemble Drive. Go straight ahead at the first 6 roundabouts, (the last two being the double Bruce Bridges junction) and at the seventh roundabout turn right and immediately left following the brown 'NMRC' direction sign. Take the left hand road around the grass oval and bear right at the end. The GWAD display zone will then be directly ahead of you. Non-Alfas should continue right, to the next car park on the left, (owned by the National Trust, who have kindly given us permission for it's use). For those with Sat Nav, please use post code SN2 2GZ. Any visitor with a disabled blue badge or disability-related needs is requested to advise us before arrival. By all means bring a picnic but please, no BBQs or naked flames (for safety reasons).

See You There!
Stu

Re: The Great Western Alfa Day 10th Sept

I'll be there Stuart - but I may be a bit hung over!!

It's Vanfest in Malvern that weekend, so I'll be camping/vanning it on Friday and Saturday night, and there's plenty of partying going on

So, if you see a GT (I should have her back by then!!!) that's probably a but muddy whose driver's got eyes to match the colour of her car, it's probably me

Will we get stuck in an outside parking area if we haven't prebooked???
Or will it be an "all together" type scenario for the AO.Com...'ers????

Re: The Great Western Alfa Day 10th Sept

I'm pretty sure you don't have to pre-book, I think it's just £2 entry to the Alfa designated parking area. It's just the other (less stylish) marques which will be sent to the plebs area

I think its just the type 916 register that has asked for a special area though, so all the other Alfas may be mixed together. (The AROC website has up to date details http://www.aroc-uk.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4992)
