We are now looking forward to our 2020 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 4th 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.

Hello Everyone,

The event organisers have been discussing this meet in light of the Corona virus outbreak, and the guidance and likely timescales for the events around the virus to unfold.

In light of this, we feel it is the sensible thing to do to cancel this event. We very much hope that the next meet on the first saturday of June will be able to go ahead if matters have improved by then.

We are as disappointed as you, and hope you understand.
Best,
Ross
