Auto Italia @ Brooklands

Anyone thinking of going to Brooklands this year? It's on Sat 4th May. It would be nice if there were a few Croma's there this year! If there is enough interest maybe we can have our own display?

FF will be having a stand like we do every year. Keep an eye in the events section of the forum for full details, a Brooklands thread will be up soon enough

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

It's probably too far away for a Croma to make it all the way. We'll have to coordinate on who's taking the emergency toolkit, EGR valves and alternators.

Big smile, tounge in cheek ...

Some people clearly have no faith in the Croma despite its "features"

My Croma has been to Brookland .... where was yours ?

Shame on you Doofer

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

Fast approaching my first year of Croma II ownership and, despite it's problems, I have never been left stranded, despite venturing out of Cornwall to London and Nottinghamshire a few times.
I choose to admire it's good points (of which there are many) rather than worry about it's weaknesses!
I was last at Brooklands in my 2.4 Marea 130 JTD and we had a display of half a dozen or so Marea's, parked along the base of the old banking. It would be nice to see a few Croma's together at the same time

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

Is this just for the old Fiats or can a 2013 registered 500C be allowed to tag along?

This could be my first meet with the new car as it's so local. I managed 15 one year with the club for my present ride

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

2 things:
First of all Doofer you beat me to it

Secondly, given how much of the isn't exactly Italian would any of the Cromas which survived the arduous journey be welcome

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

I've now got this image of a Top Gear style special where there's dozens of broken down Cromas littering the surrounding area.

Re: Auto Italia @ Brooklands

We will all be able to park together, as the forum - as long as it is a Fiat, you can park on the stand

I'll get upset if any bullies tell me to go away as it's a Vauxhall.

I'm going to start the Croma count. Add your name and car spec/colour - see if we can make a murky coloured rainbow or something.

Doofer: - 1.9 16v Prestigio - Metallic Red

Not long now. Are there going to be any more Croma's coming? Didn't recognise any names on the list.
