Auto Italia

Brooklands Motorsport and Aviation Museum 2013


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.


Whats is this event?

Auto Italia returns to Brooklands in 2013 on Saturday May 4th. 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 newbees 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 2013. 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=3293

Although we aren't allowed BBQs here - we will put on a cold breakfast buffet, followed by another for lunch ALL FOR FREE

How do I signup?

Well firstly EVERYONE IS WELCOME and indeed the more the merrier - there's just a few things we ask of you:
  1. Please click the "Add Me" link at the top of this thread, choosing how many +1s you will bring (if any)
  2. Fill in the Event Registration form found in your user control panel (we use this to make the name badges as well as try and plan a design a bit)

WHEN YOU ARRIVE... and have parked up, please come over to the main tent to collect your name badges. If you haven't clicked "Add Me", or are bringing guests - you will need to register on site - just need a few details and a badge will be made for you on the spot.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THIS - we need this for 2 reasons - 1) So we know who turned up and 2) So we can contact you throughout the day for whatever reason.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Re: Auto Italia - Brooklands 2013

Need to earn/use a favour at work to get this day off, but i can provisionally say i'll be there as my Boss is very good to me in this sense Really want to do Brooklands this year myself as i decided i didn't fancy it last year (partly due to being an event virgin then), but now i'm ready and raring for them all!

EDIT:

Scrap all of that, just looked at my holiday slip i got back from work today and coincidentally i have that Saturday off work already. So....i'm attending! Hurray!
