Happy New year too everyone!! For all you waiting for the All Italian breakfast meeting to start again at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH (just outside Alton) the first one for 2018 will be on Saturday April 7th @1000AM.

The Lat Oct one we had 0ver 100 Italian cars, every marque was represented we even had a de Thomas Pantera). It will be the same format, informal meeting of Italian car enthusiast, park up, chat, admire the cars, and have a good breakfast (best to get in early before the queue really picks up!). We had the a youtube blogger do a video of the last meeting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGN3Pk8e1TA

As all other meets it's open to any Italian car of any age, and we have had classics through to modern Alfas, Fiat's and Ferraris and everything in between. Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently.

The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park so all the cars are together and out of the main public car park

As before there are few meeting points, for those coming from Southern Hampshire there is a meet at 08:30 in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then drive up in convoy.

I usually meet a few people in Newbury (I drive a 916 Red Alfa Romeo Spider so should be easy to spot) at 0900 in the McDonald car park McDonald - Newbury Retail Park, Pinchington Ln, Newbury RG14 7HU, then who ever turns up there we run down to Alton in convoy.

Please spread the word to other Italian marque forums or boards, and get those cars down there!! the breakfast is worth it on its own!!

So will see you there Sat April 7th 2018!!

Alan

Is anyone definitely going to this? Quite fancy a trip down, but it may have to be in a Tempra!

Re: Saturday 7th April 2018 - Italian Car Breakfast Meet

So Less than a week to go for the All Italian breakfast meeting at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH, weather looking not too bad. The field is well drained so should be OK. So hope to see you all there on Saturday.

Anyone is also welcome to meet up in Newbury McDonald car park @0900hrs Address - Newbury Retail Park, Pinchington Ln, Newbury RG14 7HU, I'll be there in my (916 Red Phase 1 Spider (last three number plate digets PPE)) then we have a convoy down to the cafe.

for anyone coming from South there is a meeting at @0830hrs in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then a drive up in convoy.

Looking for to this first meeting of the year

Alan

Re: Saturday 7th April 2018 - Italian Car Breakfast Meet

I'm absolutely there! Was hoping the car would be different since last time - had big plans. Oh, of mice and men.

Looking forward to it. Hoping to give the car a polish and a hoover so I don't have to be ashamed about opening my boot to get something out like I was last time haha.

Might rain now? Not that anyone is a fair weather car enthusiast here.

Re: Saturday 7th April 2018 - Italian Car Breakfast Meet

I look forward to seeing you all again for the first time this year.

I washed and polished the car last weekend, so it is bound to be wet

Actually looks like we might just have a shower, so compared to recent weather that is positively good, and a couple of dry days now before the weekend will help dry the field out.

Haha that's why I've been putting off the clean. If it does rain we'll know it's your fault!

I saw photos from the last event last Sunday, and the field looked fairly wet, so hopefully it's all nice and dry!

See you all tomorrow!

Dry, 7/8 overcast, a little brightness showing through.
Be selfish, you keep the rain, one of the things Wales is renowned for.
