We are now looking forward to our 2019 All Italian Car Breakfast Meets, to be held on the first Saturdays in April, June, August, and October.
As with our previous meets, it will start at 10am on those dates, with the first being Saturday the 6th April, at The Departure Lounge Cafe, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.

The café is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park so as to be able to display our cars all together and out of the main public car park.

The meet starts at 10am, which is when the café opens, and is not a formal event so no booking is necessary, and entry is free, so just come along if you fancy it.

It is open to any Italian car of any age, and we have had classics and supercars through to modern Alfas and Fiats and everything in between. Attendees have come from across the southern counties and as far afield as London, Kent, and Dorset, with many clubs supporting the event.
The format is simple, we park up, chat to other owners and look at the cars on show, and have some breakfast if you want to. People usually drift away after lunch. We have had close to 200 cars at some of last years' events, so there is plenty to see, and always lots of Alfas.

For those coming from southern Hampshire we meet by 08:30 in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then drive up in convoy. We sometimes include a stop with a photo shoot on the way.

We would love to see you all again, or meet you for the first time if you haven’t been before. Please do also spread the word to other Italian marque forums or social media that you are part of.

Thanks for organising this Ross shame the Cafe was not prepared for the onslaught, enjoyed despite the wait and SWMBO grabbing a table and chatting up a Ferrari owner while I queued

Great to see everyone who made it to the meet today.
About 100 cars in total representing every major Italian marque, including some real rarities.

The next one will be on the first Saturday in August, again at the Departure Loubge Cafe just outside Alton, starting at 10am and free to attend as usual.
