The Scottish Italian Car Day is set to return in 2019!



This yearís event will be held on Sunday May 26th at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry (just outside Edinburgh) so please get the date in your diary!

Some of you may have attended car shows at this venue in the past and will be aware that it provides an excellent back-drop for the display of fine Italian machinery. Whatís more, the large area of hard-standing and metalled access route means that presenting your car in tip-top condition should be trouble-free!

FS has been quiet for the last wee while (and I dare say Cupar being missing has been part of that!) so lets see if we can't get the gang back together and give our support? I know the orgnaisers are always looking for volunteers to give an hour or two of their time, so if you'd be interested in helping please let me know and I can pass on details to the organisers.

See you in May

Martyn

Definitely. Last minute shows can pay on the door and still be on the stand too so don't discount that either - the only rule for that is you need to be on site for 10 am if on the stand.

But certainly come and say hello wherever you are parked

Re: SICD Returns -

This may sound pretty dumb, but I'm used to attending motor sporting events auto jumbles and that sort of thing. I'm not used to this form of event. If I were to get there before 10am would you like to have Becky on your pitch - there's nothing special about her, bog standard (glass roof oooh!) with a few minor blemishes thrown in. Here she is:-

We are heavily into childminding (4 grandchildren - so far!) If I got there early enough, and you would like her on your pitch, would I be able to depart maybe around lunchtime? School/childminder pickup is often around 3.00pm so I'd need time to get back.
Kindest regards
Jock

SICD is a celebration of all Italian cars from the exotic to the everyday so yes, of course we'd like Becky on the stand. Hell, they let my ancient, battered, and standard Grande on there so she'll look great in comparison

However, if you do need to nip away after a few hours (bearing in mind it's on a Sunday) you might be better off in the main car park where it's easier to come and go. It's a bit of a pest to move cars from the stands once the general public are on site although doable in emergency.

Again, if you go for that option make sure you come and introduce yourself to whoever is loitering on the stand. We'll have the event shelter there so should be easy to spot - although it will be Fiat Scotland banners you'll need look out for as I don't think we have any Fiat Forum ones. But we are FF affiliated as Ben and Dom will confirm

Re: SICD Returns -

Oh there I go being stupid again. Hadn't looked at the calendar so didn't clock that it's on a Sunday - Doh! (been retired for a while now and tend not to think of these things) That considerably improves the chances of being able to attend. Both my boys work Sunday shifts but Mums will be at home so childminding duties are much less likely to need factoring in.

Really hoping I can make this.
kind regards
Jock

I attended one of these and thought it was a good event and would support it again if it were to be resurrected, put me down as a supporter/helper, I have an old Maserati 3200 and can probably get support from the sportsmaserati forum for this even too.
Cracking - I'll let the organisers know - thanks very much!

Thank you - I'll check back on this thread from time to time. You're very welcome to PM me. But I'm not very good on "computery things" so can't guarantee I'll pick it up?
Do you know what the charge might be for entry on the day?

Re: SICD Returns -

Just to answer a few of the questions raised.

Volunteers - I will be putting out a request for volunteers probably at the beginning of next week. (including some early birds to help setup)

Entry/Exit times - We usually ask people to be on-site before 10am & remain until 3pm.

That said one of the attractions of the event is that people can choose to attend (or not) depending on the weather. We are hoping that can still be the case this year but Hopetoun may have some say. I'll come back once we have a definate answer.

Re: SICD Returns -

SCOTTISH ITALIAN CAR DAY - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.

To ensure that it is a successful day for all Italian car owners and for the general public who come to see the cars, we need your support. e.g. marshal cars at the gates and within the field, collect money at the two entrances etc. This may involve only an hour or so of your time. this is a great opportunity to get family members and friends involved.

Please email Keith Philpott at dreammachinesit@btinternet.com to indicate if you are willing to help on the day.
