Auto Italia Italian Car Day

Please keep an eye on this post as any amendments get posted


After a break of three years we are delighted to announce that Auto Italia magazine will be returning to the stunning Stanford Hall location at the end of September for a late season Italian Car day.

HELP NEEDED...

Because of the short notice, we won't have a large enough team of staff about to help out, so we are wondering if a couple of you wonderful people would want to help out a bit in the morning (help put up the dome marquee and do a spot of parking)


When? Sunday 29th September 2019
From? 8:30am
Where? Stanford Hall
How much? £10 per adult, free for children under 16

Centrally located and with easy motorway access, Stanford Hall provides a lovely backdrop flanked by acres of well trimmed grass.

As usual the special lawned area in front of the Hall has been set aside for the concours display that will once again feature the National Fiat and Abarth Concours, Lancias and other selected special cars.


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:
  1. Click the "Add Me" button in the attendees section at the top.
  2. Fill in your details in the "Event Registration" section of the User CP
  3. Turn up on the day

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THIS - we need this for 2 reasons - 1) So we know who turned up and 2) So we can contact you throughout the day for whatever reason.



On the Day

On arrival, once you get through the main gate (where you'll need to pay, so have your cash ready) - go up the main path and head off to the left to our normal location - as seen below



Watch out for FF Events team in Yellow Jackets as they will be guiding you to your parking spaces.


Help! I need somewhere to stay!

If you're travelling a long way and want to make a holiday of it the grounds have accommodation and a caravan park:

Re: AutoItalia Italian Car Day @ Stanford Hall

Back after so long, but I won't be able to make this - along with a lot of the staff - so we do need some helpers!

Nothing major, just help @gadge with the dome tents in the morning and bit of parking to make everything look nice.

If all goes well this year, it will become a regular thing again and I'll sort out flights accordingly

Yep I'll be there first thing so once the first few cars turn up it'll just be a case of parking cars up in an orderly fashion. Going on previous yeas we'll have a good turn out. I'll try my best at a good display but it'll be a functional one to so people can move their cars easily enough come home time.

Always wanted to tick this off of my list of car shows attended so if finances allow I will be there (it's dependent on a big incoming bill from the plumber sadly). And if I'm there I'll be down the night before so will be able to help out wherever I'm required

Definitely attending. May or may not have my 14 year old with me though so getting there early might be a challenge

I still can't believe he's now that age but what a great kid


It's looking more likely I won't be able to head south for this as not had the house bills in yet. On top of this my elderly Aunt will be relocating north mid-September to stay with my folks and, as she has dementia, they are going to need lots of support.

I just don't think I can head away for a long weekend 2 weeks after she moves in

Can you all make this a great show so that it goes ahead next year and I still get to tick it off my list

Aw, shame. Hope it goes smoothly for her. Stanford Hall's loss, you could have been right there in the concourse with attention to detail like this

I can't believe you took a photo of that

That's what happens when you're the person carrying nearly everything down for a show and the rain won't go off for long enough to get it all tidied away once set up.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it

My great aunt is now not relocating until the end of this month so I'm afraid I'll be helping with that instead that weekend. Have fun all and please let this go ahead next year

If it's as per previous years you can arrive, roll in and join the stand more or less whenever you get there. Earlier the better from the stand's point of view (most are there between about 9-10.30) and stuff starts to leave gradually from about 2.00 onwards depending on weather and their journey home so get there well before lunch if you want to get a good look round.
If all goes according to plan see you there!

It's an expanding club stand so basically as the cars roll up they just get added to our plot so you can turn up anytime but your car will be further away from the centre of the stand if you get me.
