Calendar: Events
LocationLocation: Rockingham Castle
RegionRegion: East Midlands




Usually the last event of the season, so hope you can make it!

Please keep an eye on this post as any amendments get posted

When? Sunday 17th August 2014
From? 10:30am onwards
Where? Rockingham Castle
How much? £10 per Italian Car - giving admission to The Great Park plus the castle and gardens

OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED - £2 for a screen sticker - this is the only part that actual goes to the MITCAR organisers so your support would be appreciated.

The MITCAR display area is in the Castle’s Great Park, benefiting from its own entrance from the A6003. It is just a 5 minute walk from the castle’s facilities. The large parkland space is ideal for shows of this nature - imagine the scene full of Italian cars!

There will be a small number of trade stands including AutoGlym and Italian Miniatures, plus Italian Car Dealerships including Chris Variava Alfa Romeo.

MITCAR will open at 10.30am and stewards will be on hand to park the cars by marque. The entrance fee will again be a modest £10 per Italian Car confirming a commitment to give best possible value. This will entitle all attendees to free entrance to the Great Park, castle and gardens.

As always visitors in any Italian car will be welcome and we can expect both classics and modern.

There will again be a competition for ‘Car of the Day’ (The Camshaft Trophy and Cup) and this year this will again involve a popular vote. Other awards will be made in different categories with the usual element of surprise. The competitive element is always light-hearted at MITCAR and sometimes the unusual and off-beat is rewarded, which might not be the case in a conventional Concours. It all adds to the fun! Prize giving will be at 3pm and, as has become the custom, all those who filled in voting papers will be entered in a prize draw.

Many will want to picnic and there is also a tea-room. BBQs will be allowed and as normal, FF will be having a BBQ fest

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash.


Want to be on the stand?

We welcome ALL members and cars on our stand - doesn't matter if your car is standard or modded, old or new. If you want to be with us, all you need to do is:

Click the "Add Me" button in the attendees section at the top.
Fill in your details in the "Event Registration" section of the User CP
Meet us at the Asda in Corby at 9am (Phoenix Pkwy, Corby, Northamptonshire NN17 5DT)

Once we arrive at the hall, a member of our team will help you park up, so then head over to the marquee where we'll give you a nice name badge before pointing you over to the *free* refreshments!


Refreshments?

Yes! From 10:30 until about 12:00 will be refreshments - donuts, tea, coffee, soda and biscuits available in the marquee. We welcome you all to come in and have a cuppa and a good old chin wag with our friendly members

Then at around 13:00 - the BBQ will be started, where again, free food will be on offer (along with a load more tea and soda if you need it!)


So - a quick run down?

09:00 - Meeting at Corby ASDA
10:15 - Convoy to Castle
10:30 - Gates Open
10:30 > 12:00 - Coffee Morning
13:00 - Group Photo followed by BBQ Lunch
15:00 - Prize Giving
17:00 - Event Closes



I'm scared / nervous / etc etc

Don't worry if you've never been an event before, or you have but have trouble talking to new people - we've got all this sorted. Everyone will get a name badge when they park up, and members of our team will greet you and introduce you to a few more members - no need to walk up to groups and try and "fit in" - we do it all for you!!

So no excuses!

Can't wait for this, see you all there!


Still not convinced?

Check out the photos from last years A great time had by all!
