The Big Abarth Summer Meet - Bicester Heritage - 3rd June 2018
« on: November 09, 2017, 06:28:24 PM »
Here is an early warning of what will be THE Abarth Owners Club event at the year.

We have made a provisional booking for the exclusive hire of an interesting location for an Abarth Summer meeting on Sunday 3rd June. As well as providing a very accessible central location for Abarth Owners to meet up en masse, (we will not run out of space even if we get 500 cars!), the site has huge appeal to the photographers among you. This unique setting contains a lot of old  buildings, many of them restored, and we will be free to move cars around the site all day, which will give everyone the opportunity to shoot cars individually and in groups with all manner of great backdrops. The extensive grounds include an area with built-in BBQ facilities, and there are plenty of areas where people will be able to spread out their own picnics, according to preference. In addition, we plan to have an Abarth Dealer on site, with some of the latest models on show, and some form of concours competition. 

Full details will be supplied once the event is confirmed. As there is a significant (fixed) cost to hire the venue, I need to be sure we have enough interest to make this financially viable, so please could you post here to indicate whether you would support this event or not.

We think we know, but withholding our guess to allow Colin to make a dramatic and grand announcement when heís good and ready... Iíve a scratch card riding on the outcome....

I will announce the venue once I have actually confirmed our booking with them. l needed to make sure that we would have enough takers to cover the cost of hiring the place....... and the response within a matter of hours suggests that we do.

Target is for the cost to be a tenner a head, by the way.

Possibly but can't say for sure until I know where it is.

Hasn't been huge interest on this forum especially, just from the No. of people who have responded. how are you getting on with numbers Colin?. Is this the same as the one last year at Coventry Transport Museum?  That one was fantastic.

Iím game! For sure!

Have just put deposit down on my first Abarth (595 Comp) having rented one for a week on honeymoon in the mountains outside of Porto a couple of months back. Wasnít even in the market for a second car until that week happened. The (new) Mrs wasnít too impressed with the 3rd person in the relationship that week and even less impressed when I told her what Iíd done today 🤭

Despite inevitably having to do some serious graft in marital purgatory, I canít contain my excitement and counting down the hours to pick up time next week!

Look forward to seeing club members and their motors next year!

Hi AbarthHorseProwler.
Welcome to the club.   Pictures required of the new car on pick up day as always . What spec and colour have you gone for...?
Hope to see you at some meets in the new year.
