Well behaved dogs are allowed on a leash but barbecues are not permitted

Tickets will be available on the day at £10 per car but we advise advance purchase for speed of entry.

Re: MITCAR - 2018 Midlands Italian Car Day

Well not a good show today...
Few Fiat, a nice panda 4x4 and a Strada TS
Quite a lots of 500 Abarth and lots of Alfa
Rained all day and I supposed to cast my vote for car of the show by 2:30pm but the prize was given by 1pm
No communication with the stewards at all
Donít think will be going next year
Shame

Re: MITCAR - 2018 Midlands Italian Car Day

The weather was dreadful if you compare it to what summer we have had in 2018. I really enjoyed the day despite it tipping down, apparently almost 200 cars all in. Its the only show I have managed to take my car to this year as Forza was cancelled in the midlands. The Panda 4x4 Country Club was a bute along with the Cinq Sporting. Fairplay for everyone to brave the rain, thank you to those who chose my car for the rarity award.

Re: MITCAR - 2018 Midlands Italian Car Day

Yes I was there although not for too long (the wife forgot her Wellies - that was her excuse anyway!) Cannot recall worse weather for an August day - so much for the English Summer drought! Still I enjoyed and thought a decent turnout all the same considering. Nice venue but that made it even more of a shame that the weather was soooo bad. Some lovely cars - Kudos to the 308GT4 driver who was the sole Fezza. Multiple 8C's that were all red. Strada Abarth and 4x4 Panda were lovely but it was just too damn wet to stand and admire/chat. Cannot really blame the organisers. I'm glad they picked up the mantle for the Midlands once Auto Italia deemed not much interest outside of London.

MITCAR have their own album of the day here https://www.aroc-uk.com/eastmids/mitcar_pics_18.html

I had to go despite the bad weather because I only live half hour away. I'm glad people liked my Panda 4x4 and in the end it was worth getting wet because I collected the Special Award trophy for the car. I think it was only a poor show because of the weather and will be supporting them again next year.
