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

We are pleased to confirm that BIAMF 2016 will take on Saturday, April 23rd, at our usual location centred on Bristol's Corn Street.

In 2016, we will be celebrating the work and achievements of two famous Italian companies: Lancia and Vespa.  We shall celebrate the 110 years which have elapsed since Lancia was founded by two racing drivers, in Turin.  This company's cars eventually came to forge a solid reputation for both technical innovation and boldness, which have always been wrapped in Italian style.  Some of the greatest men in motoring history have been closely involved with Lancia over the years: from Jano, the legendary engine designer; through to the great coachbuilder, Pinin farina, and Guigaro, the legendary body designer.  The company has produced many iconic vehicles over the years, and the 2016 festival in Bristol, will feature a wide range of their models, and all the other famous Italian marques on four and two wheels, for the public to appreciate, free-of-charge, at very close quarters.  It will also be seventy years since the birth of the Vespa scooter: designed by an aircraft company as a cheap way of getting to work, this machine has proved to be a timeless icon of Italian style, and one which has transcended all trends and fads.

We would welcome owners of interesting examples of these marques to take part in the featured section of the festival.

Entry details for BIAMF can be found on the BIAMF website.

 

La Vita Rosso at Prescott

Over the weekend of May 28/29, Prescott Hill Climb will host a French & Italian auto festival. Saturday will feature Italian cars (La Vita Rosso), while the French (La Vie en Bleu) are featured on Sunday. The new format for this event promises to make an excellent weekend, featuring French and Italian classic and supercars, themed entertainment, a vintage aerial displa, trade stalls and refreshments. As Nick Mason, Drummer from Pink Floyd, and avid car collector said “Despite being called La Vie en Bleu, the event is quintessentially British - a mini Goodwood Festival of Speed set in the glorious Cotswolds - celebrating French cars, but in a British way. It’s a club motor sport at its best, where visitors can mingle with the cars, speak to the drivers, and watch rare historic vehicles to modern day supercars being pushed to their limits”. We expect to have a club enclosure at the eveny, please look out for further details..

Italian Passion For Speed at Cardiff

David Morris has been working with Ferrari enthusiast Paul Talbot to stage an Italian Supercar event in Cardiff Bay. This event will take place on Sunday 19th June. Whilst the display itself is limited to those from the supercar fraternity, the event should prove an excellent day out for all automotive enthusiasts and a welcome addition to the Welsh motoring calendar.

This event is now open for entrants, please see the event website for more details.

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 !
