EVENTS

So as a Forum we do the usual AutoItalia @ Brooklands, AutoItalia @ Stanford Hall and of course MITCAR.

Sadly due to it being unfeasible AutoItalia have decided to not do Stanford Hall this year.

So, we have decided to ask the membership (YOU!) what do you want from an event?

Now is your time to tell us what YOU want from an event. However daft you may think it is, it could be a great idea so get commenting below!

Thanks in advance,
FF Event Staff

@dombooth

What about that place we all went to after prodrive the other year for a bit meet up / BBQ in the summer around the time of Stanford?

I can't believe its been stopped, was one of the best shows of the year, only started dwindling in numbers due to price increases year on year imo.

Re: Events feedback required!

Joining another "group" would be better I think,

location reasonably Central..,
but as long as it's near ONE or more Motorways.. location will always suit some more than others

The "Country House".. good for acres of space/ decent loos, etc

Yeah I've seen that one floating around facebook, but we're looking for ideas on what you want in terms of us starting up a new show, by the forum for italian car owners.

Re: Events feedback required!

Thoresby Hall have some nice classic and Mini shows and a great venue. We have had a small Panda & a smattering of others presence there on a few occasions. I'm sure in previous years they used to do a Mini/classic show on Mayday bank holiday, a Japanese/classic show in June and another Mini/classic show on August bank holiday (often clashes with Mitcar). This year I see they are rolling the Jap & Mini shows over the Sunday and Monday of the May bank holiday so maybe some potential for a slot in June?? Reasonably central in Nottinghamshire, near Ollerton.

+1 for this, its a cracking venue, maybe a word with the organisers could get an Italian day sorted like the Jap day you mentioned?

What like these?

Plenty of flat areas for BBQs there also from memory.

Don't forget MITCAR that's midland based

I agree for me it was the best on the calendar but It just got progressively worse over the last 3 years. Aside from the price increase I think the nail got firmly hammered into the coffin when they made it a "summer classic" event meaning other non Italian cars could join in. When that happened they lost Ferrari (who didn't want to be a part of it) and a good few other clubs too along with the trade stands sad really as it was a great turnout for us being so central.
