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



This year’s 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. What’s 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

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.
Email sent earlier in the week.

For anyone not sure about volunteering I can highly recommend it. As well as making sure the event runs smoothly it's also an opportunity to get to know people in other clubs and is no hassle at all. I've had a lot of fun doing it the past few years I've been involved

For anyone who's been before you'll know how much work it takes to make the event happen so I'd highly recommend giving an hour of your day.

If you haven't been before - you're going to love this!

It's a nice FF challenge though

Along with how many pandas can we get up to Scotland for SCID....

It'd be great to see you there
Aye right enough. He's not going to be ready unless I get a massive injection of new found skill and enthusiasm in the next couple of weeks. Good job I've got the backup Stilo on the road and working eh.....
Ooops, seem to have got rid of that and bought another small broken Fiat just what I needed. Needs an alternator this one plus a small snagging list, sure this'll be ready


probably be right way up too. what is it with the gallery at the minute?

Gonna assume you took that picture with an iPhone? The gallery has some weird aversion to the way Apple implement metadata in pictures.

Re: SICD Returns -

Less than a week away now, can’t believe how quickly it’s come round. A couple of us (at least) will be on-site early to set up the stand and we may even have the bbq up and running when you arrive - if we don’t take too long getting the event shelter up that is. Of course, it does depend on if someone can remember how the event shelter goes up as it’s been a while…


Hope to see lots of you there. Just tell the marshals you’re with Fiat Forum/Fiat Scotland and they’ll send you in our direction.
