The AOC area was filled a couple of months ago.. so don't build your hopes! They may still have space for "General Italian" parking.

Yes, I will be there.... in the AOC area (they relented before I had to pull rank!)

Yeah they emailed me and said there isn't any more room. Oh well never mind, it was a fair way away from me anyway.

That's great news...............to be honest how could you not be there? You've organised the event for the rest of us!

See you there  :)

Just a polite reminder for all AOC members travelling via M25 to book their Dartford crossing toll. Just booked both ways for Sunday for 5. JL

11:00 update - Beautiful weather here at Brands Hatch. It's packed with punters too. Great showing from AOC and there are many other Abarth cars scattered around the circuit, including some very unusual early cars. Will try and load some images and apologies now for any that load upside down; it's just what happens when I try posting anything!! A

13:00 update and the sun is still blazing down on us. AOC buffet lunch is a huge success, especially the whopping chocolate gateaux!! Plenty to share if you're here and not wandered over to find us... A few more pictures added (again no idea of the orientation) of some of the other delights here to enjoy

Another excellent event with a strong AOC contingent showing up, which was a good job given the amount of picnic food we had between us! Festival Italia has certainly grown from its inaugural year last time out and we were blessed with some beautiful weather and some stunning Italian motoring, plus some thunderous F1 cars on the track. As ever huge appreciation to Colin and Bertie for another great meeting and enabling us to be a part of the entertainment; the AOC pitch drew a lot of attention.  Looking forward to seeing some of Colin's many many pictures and Stef's latest video blog.  assuming a fair wind, some good health and similar weather, will see you at Ragley Hall.

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.
Neil.
didnt see you Neil, were you not able to make it? Fantastic event put on by MSV again

Just arrived back home from attending our first Festival Italia, what a brilliant day and perfect weather! We weren't on the owners club pitch but we're parked opposite, the other half was thrilled she didn't see any Circuit Grey 595s with white stripes!

Little result also as I got one of the hot laps, I was in the Spider that went out solo, what a car!

Hopefully we'll try and get out to some more meets in our area.

Hi  A & JL,
Missed coming today , due to an unexpected trip last weekend (  down some stone steps at work last weekend ).  Have my left wrist strapped just now.
If all goes well i`m planning to be at Ragley Hall next weekend.
Glad you had a great day today and thanks for posting pictures. Hopefully meet up next weekend.

Hi RoundyUK, saw your car, pleased you've had a great day, apologies I didn't get a picture.  Neil, sounds painful, get well soon (and in time for Ragley Hall).

Hi Jl,
thanks for the good wishes..........happy to say no broken bones ,just  bruised and bumped, and dented pride.

Not driven the car for the last few days .......oh boy do i miss the fun.....Tomorrow the M6 and M54  get a run.
