Italian Car Meet - Saturday 7th April, Alton, Hants.
For all you waiting for the All Italian breakfast meeting to start again at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH (just outside Alton in Hampshire) the first one for 2018 will be on Saturday April 7th @10AM. People usually stay until about lunchtime, although there is no specific closing time.
At the Last October one we had around 100 Italian cars, every marque was represented we even had a de Tomaso Pantera. It will be the same format as last year; an informal meeting of Italian car enthusiast, park up, chat, admire the cars, and have a good breakfast (best to get in early before the queue really picks up!).
As all other meets it's open to any Italian car of any age, and we have had classics through to modern Alfas, Fiat's and Ferraris and everything in between. Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently. Our furthest attendees have been from as far afield as Kent.
The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park so all the cars are together and out of the main public car park.
Please spread the word to other Italian marque forums or boards, and come and join us.
In case you can't make this one, the other events for 2018 will be on the first Saturdays of June, August, and October, at the same venue.
