The 17th edition of MITCAR keeps up the tradition of being held at a new venue each year, this time at a delightful Stately Home setting and with an additional attraction: ‘The International Model Air Show, including planes, helicopters, jets plus model car racing and boats. Entrance to that excellent event is included in the MITCAR ticket price, which also includes admission to the magnificent hall, the extensive parklands and gardens and the kids adventure playground.
So we will have hundreds of Italian cars parked by marque, plus a fascinating additional event at beautiful venue, all for a bargain price!
MITCAR has its own area to the east of the site (the Polo Field), which is close to the hall and its facilities, with the model air show a short walk to the west.
ADVANCE PRICES for MITCAR, the House & Gardens and the Model Air Show are £10 per adult, £5 child (5-16), £30 Family (2 Adults and up to 3 Children). It will be a busy day so getting advance tickets is very much advised to speed your entry. GET TICKETS HERE - PRINT YOUR OWN! Select MITCAR from the list of events shown.

MITCAR is open to ALL Italian cars, and non-Italian cars too which will be parked in an adjacent general parking area. There is no need to book a display spot and you do not have to be a member of a car club to attend,
We will have a selection of trade displays, including from our event sponsors.

Re: MITCAR - 2017 Midlands Italian Car Day

That's one of the reasons I didn't go. Had the feeling last year that we were shoved to the back and an afterthought being Fiat rather than embracing all things Italian. Comes across as an Alfa day rather than all things Italian as advertised.

If you mean it's down to us to turn up then yes I agree but at Gaydon all the Alfa stands were at the front and Fiat Forum was shoved at the back. So didn't feel like we were welcome. Hence why I didn't bother going this year even though Ragley is 10mins from my house.

Looking at the layout also all the trade stands are on the Alfa side, so drawing you away from the other makes and into the Alfa area. Why not put them in the middle unless it's done deliberate ?
