Auto Italia



Brooklands Motorsport and Aviation Museum 2017


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.


What is this event?

Auto Italia returns to Brooklands in 2017 on Saturday April 29th. 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 newbies 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 2017. 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=3986


We also are happy to announce that our friends at MultiECUScan have provided us with their latest MultiECUScan Multiplexed system, so we'll be offering a basic diagnosis service over at our Dr. FIAT table.

So if you've had any strange lights popping up on your dash, or you're getting error codes when you start up, be sure to book in and we'll give it the once over.

Alright, alright... As a present for all of you that don't use Facebook, I attempted to upload a section of images from my album

Unfortunately, the size prevented me from adding more than 2 images before my gallery space ran out

I think you can improve gallery space by donating (which I still plan to do at some point) but didn't see anything about it on the page, though I've tried my best with what I've got!

Sorry there's only two more up but I hope that's of some consolation, and I've added the link to the Facebook album to each of my images so that those with an account can view all 143 pictures. I'm surprised Facebook doesn't have some sort of view only function that allows you to still see the photos, shame!

Though Charlie, is there anything specific you wanted to see? I can upload a picture to a separate image hosting site and send you a link if so - just let me know

Also while we're on the subject of photos, not sure if people know (probably do), but entry photos are available here; http://www.photography-uk.com/v/phot...xth/C251641604.

Oh, and to the lady in the little Abarth who came over and loved my dashboard and had a similar one, I didn't catch your name (oops), but hopefully you're on here; it was a pleasure to meet you!

Re: AutoItalia - Brooklands 2017

I must admit, the cars they have and haven't taken photos of does seem a bit peculiar. I was surprised to find one of mine, but it took forever and was in the wrong timeslot.

It was also great to park on the banking, nice piece of history there. I haven't been before so had nothing to compare the event to but all in all I think it was thoroughly enjoyable!





Name badges were made up for all the declared Fiat Forum attendees, think I must have been one of the only ones wearing mine, didn't see any others!



I uploaded 143 photos in all so a great variety of cars pictured. Haven't uploaded to the gallery here as they are massive files and a large quantity of them at that, took me ages to upload them to Facebook alone! Here they are, uploaded in an album set on my photography page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/fendysph...43386699088704



One of my favourite pictures I took on the day, of my Panda with a lovely Lancia in the background on the banking

Re: AutoItalia - Brooklands 2017

Great day and great organisation and I got so carried away I forgot all about the photo, sorry.

What a fantastic display of Fiat various let alone some of the priceless Ferrari's on display.

I thought the way the Fiat Coupes in particular went up that hill was mighty impressive.

Hope to meet some of you again at the next bash in June with the Admiral - Boggy the Bravo.
