I am delighted to announce that the ever-enthusiastic Ciro Ciampi, owner of the Sharnbrook Hotel, an Abarth and a number of other cars (some of you may have seen his Gallardo at the Brooklands Auto Italia event) and organiser of some fabulous Petrolheadonism events is hosting Abarth Owners Club for a summer BBQ and Drive-out event, like he did last year. The date is Sunday July 8th. And this year, we have appeased the weather gods and are due some spectacular summer weather!

For those who've yet to discover the Sharnbrook, it is located on the A6, a few miles north of Bedford, and the ample ground make the perfect setting for a Club meeting. This private event opens at 10am, and will conclude in mid-afternoon, with a drive-out in convoy for a journey of about 30 minutes to a further meeting point. Even with the rather soggy start to the day, it was a lot of fun last year, and this time it is going to be even better. To add a little more interest, we will be joined by the Mustang Owners Club, so for those who love this most enduring of American sports and muscle car (and who doesn't?), there will be some added variety to the day. 

You need to pre-book. Entrance is 10 per car (plus booking fee), and you will be able to secure your place shortly.

Quick reminder about this....... you need to buy tickets in advance.

This was a great event last year (when it rained at just the wrong moment) and this time the forecasters are predicting perfect BBQ weather so it should be even better.

It would be embarrassing if there were more Mustangs there than Abarths.

Hi Colin,

Thanks for message - see you on Sunday. Am travelling  with another guy from Lincoln - Paul and  his partner  in his recently aquired  Camponvolo Grey and  and me in my Competzione 595C bi colore black and white  reg no 5957MG.

Was there last year..... hope this year is loads warmer. Have checked the forecast.... it says sun and 27`c - whoopee.

See you there.

Hi Colin,
Excellent day with you all and sooo much better than 2017 - weather?
I was the only Bi colore redline cabrio there - 5957 MG - last year 2 more bicolore tin tops but not this time.
Met some lovely friendly fellow Abarth members  and some amazing examples of the marque.
Food excellent and company so all good and bring on 2019!!

Hi there,

Have noticed that Heague Hall Derby on 05/08  is being organised partially by East Midlands Abarth Owners`Club.

I will be there but there is little information as to the event, timing etc.

Please let me know by e-mail (mark.goulden3@btinternet.com) who is organising  Abarth line up.

Regards,

Mark Goulden, ( bicolore red line  5957MG, 595C Competzione  Cabriolet  (not convertible please!!)
