I know its a month away yet, but I was wondering how many 155ers are attending the Auto Italia concours event at Stamford Hall on 1st June. We might be able to set aside an area for 155.com, so I would like to email them to let them now approximate numbers.
Sorry its Stanford Hall (actually thought it was but then checked spelling of it in email from Auto Italia and changed it )
Its near the M6/M1 junction near Daventry. If anyone is thinking of staying over, there is a travel inn/lodge and Holiday Inn (think it might be an Ibis now) nearby close to the DIRFT.
Less than one month to go !!!!!
I can't wait as this is my first year with my 155 the last two have been with my 75 .
We are taking the Lancia Thema Turbo Series 3 and as well and might even get out the Fiat Panda 4X4.
See you all there well the 5 that voted anyway just a shame we can't show off our 155.com stickers ain't it.
I will be there as I have an autojumble stall.My wife will be taking my 155
If any one needs any bits for a 75 Tspark or an alfasud sprint please let me know and I will take them to the show. wink wink
Is there going to be an area to park all the 155's?
see you all at the show,it should be great.
I spoke to one of the organizers and she said they hope it betters last years show.
there were 80 Maseratis last year and they expect more this year along with concourse Ferraris.
1...Going North on the M1, exit at J18 and then proceed right, under the motorway on A428 toward the village of Crick. In the first part of Crick, look for a turning to the left marked Yelvertoft. In Yelvertoft you will come to a T-junction, turn left towards Stanford on Avon and Stanford Hall, crossing over the A14 en route.
2...Coming south on the M1, exit at junction 20. DO NOT follow the signs to Stanford Hall but take the A427 towards Husbands Bosworth. After about 1 1/4 miles turn right in Walcote toward South Kilworth. Then follow the signs to Stanford on Avon/Stanford Hall, turn right in Stanford Village......this route will avoid congestion that occurs throught the main gate (ps. sure these were wrong in the past and I just followed signs to Stanford after turning off the M1)
3...From the east on the A14, proceed to the roundabout at the M1/M16 interchange and then turn right into a minor road, following the signs to Stanford Hall through Swinford Village.....or, exit the A14 at Junction 1 and go cross country through Cold Ashby and Stanford on Avon.
4...South on the M6, exit towards the A14 before the M1 and M6 meet, pass under the M1 and then go straight ahead at the second roundabout (not on to the A14). Follow the signs through Swinford to Stanford Hall.

I also ask this as all 75/155/145 and so on all parked together and it was crap where as the year before all the 75 parked together and so on.
I know the sound abit like your granny moaning but can some one let the organisers know that all groups of cars should really be parked together and not like the mess it was in last year.
But my highlight of Stanford Hall was that guy showing off in his suited up Fiat 500 and the chain drive went half way down the drive,sorry but i am still laughing now.
