Welcome to the IAMC!

We are an independent group of enthusiasts, linked by a shared love of Italian two- and four-wheeled vehicles. Many Italian car and bike clubs do not have enough members in particular areas to make local meetings and social activities viable, but by getting together such events become possible - and even more interesting!

Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival

BIAMF 2017 took place on April 22nd and despite all the challenges presented this year, it proved to be one of the most satisfying events yet.

Many many thanks to our good friend Colin Rear for his fantastic report which can be found here. Please also check out Colins other work at his new website ColinOnCars.

 

Bridgnorth Italian Automoto Festival - Sunday 3rd Sept

As Italian vehicle enthusiasts note the gradual change from summer to the autumn, the picturesque town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire, will be welcoming us all again to the second ‘Bridgnorth Italian Auto Moto Festival’.   Bridgnorth’s main streets are being closed especially for this event, and whilst the town will be welcoming all things Italian, this year there will be especially warm celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the formation of the Ferrari company; the 70th anniversary of Lambretta, and the 60th birthday of the iconic Fiat 500.

This year, Ducati riders will have their own dedicated display area on the town’s High Street, and we are hoping that the main Ducati Owners Club GB will be bringing their national show stand .  A number of midlands-based Italian scooter clubs also arrived in very colourful and noisy 2-stroke convoys last year, and as more of these machines are now being restored, we think that 2017 will give us an even better show.  Whilst some of us are not used to seeing too many Moto Guzzis on our main roads, the Moto Guzzi owners club were able to ensure that a good many of their riders provided a stunning display of well ridden bikes: from the newest models through to several variations of the classic V7.  They are also visiting again, and will be riding into town in convoy.

In 2016, Alfa Romeos gave us the widest range of models – from Duettos to Breras to a couple of the latest 4cs.  However, this year, it would also be great to see more Lancias and Abarths: a good showing from FIAT enthusiasts would also be very welcome.

Last year, at the other end of the main street, an open-air continental market was provided, which kept us fed and watered.  This year, the market has promised to help refresh us again, and we are hoping for a good turnout of entrants and visitors, as we are guaranteed good and wide coverage in the local press and radio.

The streets will be ‘legally’ closed to all non-italian vehicles after 7.30am, but most entrants will probably wish to arrive around 9.30am.  All visitors will be encouraged to check out the rides on the local cliff railway, and the Severn Valley steam railway, which will both be running on the day, and are very near to our display area.  For motorcyclists, there will be a secure helmet and jacket crèche on-site.  Entry to the event will be free of charge for all IAMC members, and members are encouraged to contact fellow IAMC member David Morris, if they require any further information on entry and direction details.  David is on 01743 232651(H) 07773 537564 (M) or at djmfastforward@hotmail.co.uk    

Italian Passion for Speed Sunday 18th June in Cardiff

The Italian Passion for Speed was held beside the iconic National Assembly for Wales building in Cardiff on Sunday 18th June. Superb weather ensured a magnificent turnout of performance cars and a large number of visitors swarmed in to view and admire them. Many thanks must go to the Italian Auto Moto Club members Paul Talbot, David Morris and their helpers for the organising and smooth running of the event.

Please see Colin Rears excellent report on the event at ColinOnCars

Avenue Drivers Club

Many members will be aware of one of our favourite regular events, the Avenue Drivers Club in Bristol. Held on the second Sunday of each month, this increasingly popular event sees an bewildering array of Classics, Supercars, Trucks, Americans, Italians (of course), and you-name-it arrive in Queens Square for breakfast, a wander and a chat. The best thing is that every month is different !
