Auto Italia



Brooklands Motorsport and Aviation Museum 2017


Show season is back upon us, beginning with Brooklands! Of course, FiatForum will be having a designated stand to show off our cars so if you'd like to be on the stand please add yourself as attending at the top so we know who to expect. Every member of FF is welcome to have their car on the stand we like to have as big a range as possible.


What is this event?

Auto Italia returns to Brooklands in 2017 on Saturday April 29th. This popular event has become the jewel in the crown for Italian car enthusiasts and in 2011 over 5000 spectators turned out to enjoy some wonderful cars in the spring sunshine. The combination of activities will once again include the demonstration of 50 specially selected cars on the Mercedes-Benz World test track and the opportunity for classic car owners to run up the famous test hill.

As you veteran attendees will know Brooklands is famous for its Hill Run (http://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sho...y.php?cat=2996) We shall post the thread for people to put their names down nearer the time when we have more information.



The FF Stand

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Don't be shy!

This is a great opportunity for newbies to meet fellow Fiat owners, socialise and talk about your pride and joys (if you want ). Make it the first of many Official Fiat Forum shows you attend for 2017. Come along, chill out on the stand, have a nosey at other members cars and enjoy a fantastic day out!

Last years photo's can be seen here: http://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sho...y.php?cat=3986


We also are happy to announce that our friends at MultiECUScan have provided us with their latest MultiECUScan Multiplexed system, so we'll be offering a basic diagnosis service over at our Dr. FIAT table.

So if you've had any strange lights popping up on your dash, or you're getting error codes when you start up, be sure to book in and we'll give it the once over.

Make sure you give me a shout this time if you see me lol

Will def be in the FF tent for a cuppa this time and not just to shelter from the rain!
Haha same here, so I just loitered at the edges. Did meet some nice folks, though.

I absolutely will - I'll try to catch more people at Tesco's initially this time too, I kinda parked on my own like a loner last time and meandered a bit aimlessly. My car is further back in this thread, so you keep an eye out for it too, that way our odds are probably increased somewhat.

Haha yeah, for sure, I fled when it rained and had to drive past everyone sheltering and thought it was probably a missed oppurtunity!

Re: AutoItalia - Brooklands 2017

I'll be here again.

Was my first year last year, and I arrived in Tesco at 8:00 and couldn't find anyone from Fiat Forum, despite asking around, and found several people in the same position. Wen it came to 8:30, still couldn't find any Fiat Forum convoy so headed over to Brooklands alone, to find most of the stand folks already there and set up.

So can it be made a bit clearer which group at Tesco is Fiat Forum, and whether they are actually convoying at 8:30 or not?

We met at the OTHER Tesco..in 2015...

So yes..it could be clearer..

The FF marquee is sold..and catering is onsite..so Im not sure what will actually happen..

I'll still be there with the MI group though..

It's all change from this year. Because we lost storage and of the logistical nightmare of renting a van and carting it all around we are going a different route. There will be a tent but it's not the old manky white one but a nice shiney (abet smaller) new one so there will be some shelter. We won't be doing teas/coffee like before either but perhaps doughnuts and sandwiches (NOT confirmed so don't be disappointed) but the fun will still be there

We don't actually organise official convoys anymore as such as so many people turn up at the same time we end up causing a grid lock at the show however jatkinson may well do one this year sometimes what we tend to do is just say the show opens at 9'oclock (I think perhaps someone can confirm?) and first to arrive gets the best spot.

If you want to orginise one amongst yourselfs then you can use the convoy thread at the top of the events page - just head line it as "brooklands convoy 2017" and go from there
