As usual the next meet will be held at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.

This will be the last meet for 2018, before we start again on the first Saturday in April 2019. We have been getting some wonderful rare and beautiful cars this year, representing every major Italian marque, and some lesser known ones too.

The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which we can park all of our cars so as to be all together and out of the main public car park.

The meet starts at 10am. It is open to any Italian car of any age, and is completely free to attend. Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently. It typically goes on until about 1 or 2pm, although people can come and go at any time.

There are few meeting points that I am aware of; for those coming from southern Hampshire there is a meet leaving at 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.

There is also another meet in Newbury at 0900 in the McDonald car park at - Newbury Retail Park, Pinchington Ln, Newbury RG14 7HU

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 boards that you are part of.

We look forward to meeting you,
Ross

Well done to everyone who turned out in the rain. Expecting to see just the daily drivers and nothing much exotic, but as it turned out a Ferrari, some Fiat Coupes, and a few others of interest. Not a day for sitting outside, but with only 20 to 30 cars plenty of room in the cafe.

Sorry I could stay for only half an hour, but good to see the regulars and die-hards.

Roll on April, have a good winter everybody.
