Cotswold Alfa Day - 28th June 2009

Cotswold Alfa Day - 28th June 2009

Organised by the AROC Cotswold Section.

The venue will be Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire.

Winchcombe is on the B4632 about 5 miles north of Cheltenham, not far from Prescott Hill, and is around 20 minutes from junction 9 of the M5. It's a splendid venue and right in the heart of the Cotswolds too. It was once the home of Katherine Parr, the last wife of Henry VIII, and although some of the castle is a private home and not open to the public, the Long Room and the adjoining galleries are, and they contain a fascinating exhibition covering the Tudors and other important episodes in the castles history. As well as this there is also a sizeable restaurant, a gift shop, a plant centre, a pheasantry, a large adventure playground, a chapel containing Katherine Parr's tomb, and acres of beautiful gardens.

There will as usual be a drive to the main event location and this time we will be starting from Blades coffee shop, in the Old Prison at Northleach. It's got a generous car park and it's nice and easy to find being just half a mile south of the roundabout where the A429 Fosse Way crosses the A40.

We're inviting you to meet at Blades from 10am for a coffee (or tea) before you head off on the driving route, now with it's shiny new name 'Giro Panoramico', at your leisure. Drivers can then follow the route singularly or in convoy and eventually it will lead them, via a few local beauty-spots, to Sudeley. As if driving through the beautiful Cotswolds in your Alfa wasn't enough there'll also be a very simple quiz along the way with a prize for the winner.

This is not just an event for classic Alfas any Alfa is welcome, we are hoping the new Alfa dealer in Cheltenham (Blade Alfa) will be bringing along a display of new cars which should include a Mito.

If you'd rather not take part in Giro Panoramico you are very welcome to go directly to Sudeley. Aim to be there from around noon when cars from Giro Panoramico will begin rolling in.

Entry to Cotswold Alfa Day 2009 will be just £7 per person for adults and £3.50 for children aged 5 - 16. Included in the price is coffee or tea at Blades, a copy of the route plan for Giro Panoramico, entry to the exhibitions and gardens at Sudeley, and entry to a prize draw. And the price remains the same whether you take part in Giro Panoramico or opt to go straight to Sudeley.

To avoid too much queuing on the day and because parking in the designated display area is limited we're asking anyone who would like to come along to please purchase tickets in advance Click Here to email for details of how to get tickets

Tickets will also be available on the day at no extra cost, both at Blades and Sudeley. However we should point out that if we are completely over-whelmed by numbers we will give space in our dedicated parking area to members who have bought tickets in advance. If - and it's a very small if - this does happen, people who buy tickets on the day might be asked to park in the public car park. It's a small risk but it's only fair to point it out

This year we've invited the Giulietta Register to join us and happily they are keen to do so. We're also expecting a good turnout of 105 models. If any other model registrars would like to book a slot please let us know as soon as possible. Click Here to email for info on register parking

So that's it. We can't promise you wonderful weather. And we can't promise you an 8C this year. But we can promise you lovely countryside, friendly people, great cars, and a magnificent venue, all of which will go to make Cotswold Alfa Day 2009 another grand day out with the AROC Cotswold Section.

If you want more information please visit our website where you will also see photos from the last three or four Cotswold Alfa Days.

Re: Cotswold Alfa Day - 28th June 2009

Well done for posting this Mark, would be good to see more meetings between the AO and AROC members, we all have a common interest after all and there are people here who belong to both.
For a meet of this size it is well worth travelling to and it is also well within the reach of the West Midlands section.
I'll certainly be tagging along to this one as it is great chance to bring the little Alfisti as well.
Dave.

Sadly I am not allowed to post the web address of an Alfa Romeo Owners Club website on the AO forum but just Google the AROC Cotswold Section and you will find our website.

Have a look in the photo gallery at the last couple of years Cotswold Alfa Days, it will give you a good idea of what we get up to.

Cheers

Re: Cotswold Alfa Day - 28th June 2009

If you are serious about coming along don't forget to buy your tickets in advance, otherwise we can't guarantee parking in the display area. We are limited this year to somewhere around 150 cars in the display area.

We have negotiated some overflow parking next to the display area and of course there is loads of general parking.

You never know if there is enough interest we may be able to put some space aside for an AO gathering in the display area.

Hi Mark,

Would a 159 (James Bond Limited Edition) get a space in the display area?

Whilst this is an AROC event in the spirit of inclusion we are open to none AROC members, you never know you may like the experience and decide to join AROC as well as AO

Re: Cotswold Alfa Day - 28th June 2009

Hi All,

Tickets are still selling really well, we've matched last years' total with over a month to go!! We've got all manner of Alfas coming. Highlights so far include maybe 'double figures' from the Giulietta Register and also a couple of really special Pre War cars, all the way through to latest offerings like the 159 LE's and Mito's, so do come along guys/girls, it'll be a great day out. Although we prefer to get as many tickets out there as possible before the event to minimize queueing, you can arrive on the day. For tickets, (£7 adult, children £3.50) send an SAE to ....10 Cypress Road, Walton Cardiff, Tewkesbury, Glos GL20 7RB. Cheques payable to M Willmott. :-)
