Thanks. I watched a YT vid on last year, last year. I daresay the Brera is due
an outing given how much £££ I have shovelled into it :censored:
Need a red one in amongst all the black/grey S Prodrives lineup I think! 😁

I’m beginning to think you resent spending money on your Brera! There were lots of Prodrives last year, they will all be mixed in with the other Breras though.

There are usually quite a few SZs there, there’s a place that specialises in them and they usually bring several. Ask them one of them nicely at the end of the day and I’m sure they won’t mind!

Should be a good day - we're aiming to allow some parade laps - organised by model group, though with over 1000 Alfas last year obviously not everyone will be able to take to the track ;)

Alfasud, celebrating 50 years since launch, and 155s with 30 years since launch will be "featured" models, and there will be a range of Race cars, too. Classic Alfas will be grouped around the engineering complex, with more recent models grouped loosely in age-related blocks, rather than simply model-by-model as in recent years. (Or at least that's the plan so far!

As one helping organise it as usual I expect to see very little of the show and to be knackered by the end of the day - but with luck it'll be as good or better than previous years - although last year the nearest I got was the Premier Inn as milady tested positive for Covid on the Sunday morning, so we had to head home, with the only Alfas I saw being those in the hotel car park ;)

Sounds like it should be really good! Looking forward to seeing some 155's again, having owned one back in the day. Will there be any BTCC cars there? Are we guided to where we should park when we arrive?
We had the BTCC Giulietta a few years ago, but I doubt there will be anything this year. Mainly cars from the Alfa Romeo Challenge Series (ARCA) but I think a few of the classic racers will be there. I know my mate is bringing his Junior Z race car.

Marshals will hopefully be on hand to direct you to the appropriate parking area - as always we're dependent on volunteers from local AROC Sections to help, particularly in the first hectic hour when everyone is trying to get in ;)

Normally I would be happy to support but jeez 19 quid for non members, I'll see if I can afford the fuel to get there
Have to agree, it isn't particularly cheap and apart from entry, not entirely sure what else one gets for the money. Appreciate there is a cost involved for some of the attractions, and it's going to be nice to see so many Alfa's from many generations. Incidentally I recently paid for a meet for the 20th anniversary of the GTA (as in 147/156) and that included entrance to Bicester, track time and breakfast. I guess hiring out pretty much all of the venue for this event is costly.

I've been loads of times, and it is the not-to-miss Alfa event of the year and Bicester Heritage is a great venue with loads of space. Really hoping for good weather. Looks like the club is putting in a big effort this year.
