All Italian Breakfast Meet - Last one of the Year - Saturday 5th October, Alton, Hampshire

I can't believe how the year has flown by - it is already time for our last event of the year!

Join us on Saturday 5th October for our final meet of the year. As with our previous meets, it will be held at The Departure Lounge Cafe, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.

The café is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park so as to be able to display our cars all together and out of the main public car park.

The meet starts at 10am, which is when the café opens, and is not a formal event so no booking is necessary, and entry is free, so just come along if you fancy it.

It is open to any Italian car of any age, and we have had classics and supercars through to modern Maserati, Alfas, and Fiats and everything in between. Attendees have come from across the southern counties and as far afield as London, Kent, and Dorset, with many clubs supporting the event.

The format is simple, we park up, chat to other owners and look at the cars on show, and have some breakfast if you want to. People usually drift away after lunch. We have had close to 200 cars at some of last years' events, so there is plenty to see, and often some of our friends from Sports Maserati.

For those coming from southern Hampshire we meet by 08:30 in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then drive up in convoy.

We would love to see you all again, or meet you for the first time if you haven’t been before. Please do also spread the word to other Italian marque forums or social media that you are part of.

Hhmm - I’m tempted by this.

My new shiny de-cat pipes should be on the car by then, and the idea of an excuse for a couple of trips through Hindhead tunnel sounds good.

Any other interest for an A3 southbound convoy?

I would have been up for this but looks like I'll be in Brighton to watch the might Spurs.

Yes I'd be up for this, could convoy down too, but I'd hate to disappoint you the Departure lounge is off the A31.

Lol - last year when I and a few others did this we met in Guildford, went down the A3 to just after Hindhead, then cut north to the A31 and the Departure Lounge.... not the most direct route, but worth it for the sound of multiple Massers giving it beans in the tunnel!

Any thoughts on times? Should we aim to meet at Guildford Cathedral around 9:30ish?
