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 by the building works in the city centre, it proved to be one of the most satisfying events yet. This year we celebrated the 70th anniversaries of Ferrari, Lambretta and the Lancia Motor Club. It was also the Fiat 500 Club’s 25th anniversary. Notable model anniversaries are Lancia: Aprilia 80th - Flaminia 60th - Fulvia Sport 50th - Hyena 25th - Kappa Coupe 20th, Alfa Romeo Giulietta 116 – 40th and the Fiat Nuova 500 - 50th. Once again there was a grand turnout of iconic Italian cars, motorcycles and scooters, all ushered safely into position by the ever willing band of volunteer marshals, without whom the event could not be held. This year we were visited by TV personality Kevin McCloud who entered a 1955 Alfa Romeo 1900 C SS and a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder 2.0. We are most grateful for the support of our event sponsors (see further down) and particularly Motor Sport Vision Racing who sponsored the awards.
However, we regret to confirm that there will be no BIAMF in 2018. The organisers have matters in their personal lives that would heavily restrict the amount of time they can devote to the many organisational tasks needed to be completed to achieve a well run event. In addition to this, the charges payable to Bristol City Council are set to increase dramatically, and we need to consider how to address this without passing too much additional cost to entrants.
We are therefore taking a break to consider our options for the future. We wish to thank all the entrants, marshals, sponsors and the St Nicholas Market staff who have supported us in the past and we apologise for the disappointment this announcement will cause.
Bridgnorth Italian Automoto Festival - Sunday 3rd Sept
Bridgnorth's second annual Italian Auto Moto Festival attracted the crowds, and a pleasing increase of the number of Italian vehicles, despite the slightly inclement weather this year.
Mayor Ron Whittle and mayoress Carol Whittle visited the event and the Continental Market which was at the other end of the High Street. Councillor Whittle said: "It's a shame we didn't have yesterday's weather, but it's still a great event. "It's something different and it's really nice for Bridgnorth to see events like this. "The event's organisers go to such an effort, there's a good selection of cars. "The children love it, it brings all the families together, it's something all families can enjoy."
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 !
