Festival Italia - Brands Hatch. 13th August 2017
« on: May 01, 2017, 06:37:50 PM »
Following the success of the inaugural Festival Italia at Brands Hatch last year, the organisers have decided to run it again in 2017, the date being Sunday August 13th.

You can find full details at the event's own website, http://www.festivalitalia.com/ but in summary, attendees can look forward to some exciting action on track, with a series of grids filled with Italian cars, displays of some fabulous classic Italian machinery, large numbers of Car Club displays as well as general Italian car parking area, an array of legendary Italian bikes as well as a number of stalls selling Italian food and drink, and as well as the cars and bikes, the site will resonate to the musical sounds of Italy. Abarth UK are the main sponsor of the 2017 event and they will have their own attractions, including the chance to get behind the wheel of some of the latest models. There will be an opportunity for those who want to do so to take their car on the track for a parade - last year, this stretched almost around the complete circuit making for quite a spectacle.

The best news of all is that those who have an Italian car are eligible for a free entry for the car and driver. (You will have to buy tickets for any passengers).

We are already registered, so there will be an area reserved for Abarths. I am promised that we will not find another Club parking their cars in the middle of our space this time round!

Full details of how to apply are to be found here:  http://www.festivalitalia.com/get-involved/italian-car-and-bike-owners/

Hi Colin, as I read it, we still have to apply by sending an email to festival.italia@msv.com to get free admission ticket for driver and car. What if our application for the display is unsuccessful? How can we still get to the AOC area? Thank you

I'd just get your email off first, I heard back in a few days. Odds on you'll be successful especially if you apply early.

Thanks Spike, based on your posting I've sent off an email to get an early registration in place. Last year's was an excellent event, blessed with some great weather and stonkingly good Italian cars.

Applied , but missed out on the Abarth Group display.
Have been offered a place in the General display area , so will be accepting that.
I believe there are still spaces left in the General show area, so if you still want to get in book up quickly.

Although a Sharnbrook is nearer, the Brands Hatch event is always going to be significantly bigger and better, so will be making the pilgrimage again this year. Opportunity to break out the picnic basket again!

Be aware that the AOC area is now full. They are offering places in the General Italian car parking, still........... but are holding out on the AOC area (they would not even accept me!)

Yes, I will be there.

Apparently there have allocated us space for 40 cars in the AOC display area. There is still space in the General Italian car parking..... they clearly under-estimated Abarth enthusiasm for the event!
