Poole, Quay For My Car Friday 21st July 2017 - Italian Car Evening

The Quayside, Poole Harbour, Dorset from 6pm to 9pm


Couple of write ups of previous years:
Thanks to Colin Rear (Colin on Cars) http://colinoncars.com/2016/08/26/qu...our-july-2016/
Thanks to Paul Hanmore (IAMC) http://www.italianautomotoclub.co.uk...Quay_2013.html

An informal gathering of Italian cars, usually something interesting for Fiat fans.



Details: http://www.pooletourism.com/page/ref:I483EBC03077E4/
QUOTE: The event offers free entry onto the quayside for the car owners who fit the theme for that particular evening. With a stunning backdrop of the Quay and Poole Harbour it is the perfect location for owners to show off their vehicles.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION (on car night): Vehicles are requested not to arrive before 6pm as the road is not closed until this time and there is no parking available; also please avoid waiting up the high street as this causes traffic congestion. *Please note that for these events we have no way of knowing prospective attendance in advance as spaces are not reserved. Parking is therefore on a 'first come, first served' basis, the site capacity is 100-120 vehicles, after that on a 'one in one out' system*
Rockley Park Quay for my Car creates a bustling, lively atmosphere that can be enjoyed by owners as they mingle with fellow enthusiasts and spectators who want to catch a glimpse of the line up. All who attend will be spoilt for choice with the Quay’s great selection of continental café bars, traditional pubs and fine dining restaurants.

Re: Poole, Quay For My Car Friday 21st July 2017 - Italian Car Evening

Hi Varesecrazy,

Thanks for taking the time & trouble to attend. Sorry if you had a wasted journey.
I don't think the event was officially cancelled. It was too wet for us to go in the Alfa (no roof/doors/windscreen etc) so we took our 'civilian' car - we didn't 'not attend' purely & simply because we had pre booked a hotel - Still, we had a nice couple of days in Poole plus a meal out & a few beers.
There were about best part of a dozen cars, mainly Fiats/Abarths, two Alfas & a Maserati so pretty disappointing. Just hope the event (Italian Stallions) isn't cancelled next year due to 'lack of interest'.

no - I didn't go ,

as this hadn't appeared in the "Calendar" on the RHS of FF homepage..

I could easily have gone - finish early on a Friday - in the X1/9.. but was only made aware it was happening about 15 mins before car were beginning to assemble

as you say great shame about the weather..

maybe next year.

Charlie
