How time flies!

I've just had a nudge from the organisers.

Guys, We have the priviledge of being invited to display our cars once again this year.

It's good to know that they appreciate our presence and entries are open to all the forum marques.

I've touched base with the Stroke Association and they are able to offer us the same deal as last year.

To us this means free gate passes, a reserved display area and about a fiver* for each vehicle, including all passengers.

*A bit more if we pitch any gazebos to provide welcome sunshade.

As you may know the event attracts a mixture of interesting cars both on the track and also in the display areas. Many photo opportunities there.

I'm also expecting the Autoslalom challenge and the prize for the 'top gun' last year was a free passenger ride round the track, and leaderboard fame.
I did offer some meagre club awards a couple of years back but everyone was chicken, Pah, I spitta de floor! Useful items for me though so it's an ill wind ....
Only ever seen 2 Alfas competing in the event, and one of those happened to be mine!

Now, If you own or, preferably, can borrow a suitably dramatic car which bellows at less than 100 Db and have driving skills acceptable to the organisers you too can offer track rides to the clamouring public.

What we need to do now is tell the organisers how many cars we can offer for the event.


I think that there will be 15 so with due modesty I will put myself at the bottom of the list:-

I was disappointed to miss it last year so would like to come down this year. Possibly just for display though this time.

I have been to the event a couple of times before and it has been a good day ( if the weather is kind).

Tentative for me as my schedule is not that far ahead at the moment.

We attended last year and despite the weather it was a great day. My heater should be fixed by then and it's a good last outting before the car goes into hibernation until Spring so count us in please... Might have a go at the slalom if the SPORTS mode is fixed too

Hi Guys,

Some interesting and beautiful cars appear on the list below and hopefully there are more to come.

Today it's looking like 15 display places is about the right number to reserve and we've various Maserati and Alfa flavours on offer at the moment but we miss the other sporting I-tie marques from the forum.

I'll need to be in touch with the organisers next week to indicate numbers so have a ponder over the weekend and if you decide you'd like to display your Bella add your name to the list. (last years pix and videos are still on the forum a page or two back, to refresh your memory).

As far as I know entries for providing passenger rides on the track are still open, subject to the organisers approval of course - and also the Autoslalom is available for anyone to set FTD! …… C'mon!!

The current display list :-

4. Alfa Muppet
5. SteveM - 3200
6. Eb
7. Panicracing
8. Phil H
9. Rockits
10. Contigo ........ ?
11. MarkMas
12. FernandoIsFasterThanYou
13. Liznnik? …… AKA Lisknik?
14. MrMickS - Ghibli
15. MrMickS -Alfa Spider
16. luckesgtv6 – Alfa GTV6

I'm hoping that kindly Mr MarkMas and kindly Mr Lisknik will be willing to bring their gazebos along to the event and any flags, banners and similar tasteful Italian related placards or fluttery stuff will be welcomed from anyone to enhance our display.

This is a cracking event to round off the 2017 season in the company of your fellow Italian car enthusiasts so even if yor'n Bella is currently hibernating in the heated motor house your Daily Drone will probably get you to the event for a good old chin-wag!

Of course, I'll keep y'all in touch with the latest squeal from the organisers, as :) & when ;) .
