Abarth 70th Birthday - at Abarth UK HQ, Slough, 31st March 2019
« on: February 27, 2019, 10:47:46 PM »
As most Abarth enthusiasts should by now be aware, this is an important year for the brand, as it marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of Abarth, and it is also 40 years since the death of Carlo Abarth. As well as the 70th anniversary editions of the cars, there will be a number of events held during the year to mark this. And I am pleased to be able to announce the very first one.

This will take place on 31st March, 70 years to the day since the founding of the Company. Abarth UK are hosting a Breakfast Meet/Sunday Scarmble event at their HQ in Slough. This is in conjunction with Pistonheads, and will constitute one of their popular Sunday Services, so there will be more than just Abarths and indeed other FCA Group products to see.

Space is finite, so at present, we need to gauge interest. If you would like to come, and are free to do so on the morning of Sunday 31st March, please indicate here that this is the case. If demand exceeds the capacity of the venue, we may have to apply some sort of prioritised list of attendees, so I cannot commit for sure that everyone will be able to attend............. and finer details including a start time will be posted in due course, too.

I'd definitely be interested - not a million miles from home and would make up for the fact that I can't make Brooklands this year.

Please be aware that Abarth UK have told us this morning that there are only going to be 30 spaces and we've got about 90 cars that have said they want to come............... so we're going to have to find some way of allocating places that is inevitably going to disappoint some people.  I will post more details here with an update, so do keep looking back at this post if this is the only place where you have said you want to come.

I hadn't realised the limited spaces are only for the display - the APC guys are suggesting that people can still go along and not be part of the display element.

For the benefit of those not on the Facebook page, we are asking everyone who wants to attend to complete this application form.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffWybf0vs5aYDRtmd6hP7Fi9vQgoarTaOYvx6jCtqd-ze9ag/viewform

From all completed forms received by this Sunday evening (10th), there will be a random draw to select the 30 cars that can attend.

Note that because of the demand, if selected it is expected that you will definitely attend.

As announced on the Facebook page as well, we have completed the selection process for the 30 cars which will be our official contribution to this event, and everyone who was successful in their application should have  received an email to advise them of that. I am very sorry that this will mean a number of disappointed people.

You can still come, as long as you park in one of the nearby side streets, though you will not get the voucher for a coffee and croissant, I am afraid.
