Following our June meet, at which we had our first Fiat Forum members in attendance, together with Alfas, Lancias, Ferraris and others, we are now organising the next events following the same format on the first Saturdays of August, and October.

The next meet will be held at 10am on Saturday the 5th August, at The Departure Lounge Cafe, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.

The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park 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 we have had classics through to modern Alfas and Ferraris and everything in between. We would really like some more Fiats to add to those that have come so far to previous meets, which have included an X1/9, 131 Abarth, 595, barchettas, and Coupes.

Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently.

The format is simple, we park up, chat to other owners and look at the cars on show, and have some breakfast if you want to. People usually drift away by lunchtime. There is no entry charge or need to register, just come along if you would like to.

For those coming from southern Hampshire we meet by 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. We often include a stop with a photo shoot on the way.

There is also a convoy from Newbury.

We would love to see you all again, or meet you for the first time if you havenít been before and get a stronger Fiat presence at this friendly event. Please do also spread the word to other Italian marque forums or boards that you are part of.

Ross

Yep, not long now! Maybe I should think about washing the car if the weather improves- last time is was using detailing spray in the car park before setting off!

Hi All

So just a week to go, and looking forward to it, hopefully have good weather for the day (nice roof down drive) so see you all at the McDonald's in Newbury at 0900hrs for the drive to Alton.
