Hundreds of Italian cars will be parked again by marque plus a number of trade stands and dealer displays. There will be special catering available on the MITCAR site and our own facilities, and picnics are very much encouraged in the delightful surroundings. 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.

There will be several prizes for best presented cars including the Camshaft Trophy for overall Car of the Day, awarded by public vote.

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.

Once we arrive at the Hall, a member of our team will help you park up.

So - a quick run down?

At the top of this page you see a picture and a write up of the event. You'll see a tab that says "add me". Click that then a little drop down menu pops down and you then just click the amount of people who are coming with you

Arrow Re: MITCAR - 2018 Midlands Italian Car Day

John here, the main MITCAR organiser.
Looking forward to another super event and seeing lots of cracking FIATs along!

Fiat Motor club are coming over as always, and the Fiat Coupe club will have a special line up too. Our event sponsors Stoneacre group are bring some brand new Fiats, Abarths and Alfas over too you can have a good look at/in.

PLEASE use the Astley Village entrance as per published post code - CV10 7PX. It's a nice drive in then to the park, about 1/4 mile. Slightly bumpy display field but nothing drastic, and really nice by a lake.

House open for tours (if that's your thing) specially for us 11-1, that's £5 a head payable to them at the house when you show your MITCAR programme.

Other than that, all the usual show awards that could go to ANY cars present, Fiat Multipla won one last year! -Plus a special prize draw.

See you there - 10am on. (No need to be super early.)

Cheers!
John

Re: MITCAR - 2018 Midlands Italian Car Day

It's a no show for me tomorrow, luigi started playing up on the way home from festival Italia last weekend. I traced the problem down to an air leak and promptly ordered new parts (carb gaskets, manifold gaskets, vacuum hoses and a new carb base plate) and all last week I have been frantically fitting these parts after work but alas I'm still waiting on one part, the carb base plate which I had to get from Germany and without that part I can't put the carb on
