2009 Dates for your Diary
« on: December 04, 2008, 02:06:29 pm »
Abarth Forum will be organising a series of events through 2009, some standalone, and some in conjunction with established events.  In the meantime, however, here are a few dates worthy of inclusion in your diary.

22 February 2009 - AbarthForum Mini-meet, Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon
A relaxed Sunday get-together at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire.  We've organised reserved parking for the group, plus discounted admission to the museum.  We'll have a range of Abarth merchandise (T-shirts, models, etc) available to buy on the day, with proceeds going to help cover the forum's costs.  Dealer representatives will join us in a GPA Esseesse and at least one new 500 Abarth.  There's a chance a classic Abarth 033 will join us, and perhaps even a special mystery guest (more on that later).

1 March: ‘Mini Mayhem - for all Small Sporting Runabouts' - Goodwood Breakfast Club
The Goodwood Breakfast Club will be held on the first Sunday of the month, from March until November (excluding September and October) at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex. The event will once again host a series of meetings with the promise of an eclectic mix of vehicles and a great organic breakfast menu to get the appetite of any motoring enthusiast going.

2 May 2009 - Auto Italia Italian Car Day, Brooklands, Weybridge, Surrey
Held in the historic surroundings of the famous Brooklands circuit, the Auto Italia-sponsored Italian Car Day is a great opportunity to see some of the finest examples of Italian metal.  A selection of trade stands will be present, and the Brooklands Museum will also be open to visitors.

3, 4, 5 July 2009 - Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood, West Sussex
The Festival of Speed is far more than just a hillclimb – it is a celebration of the history of motor sport and can justifiably claim to be the world’s biggest and most diverse classic motor sports event. Taking place outside Goodwood House, using the main road through the Park as the track, it’s the only occasion where you’ll see in action the greatest competition cars and star drivers from the entire history of motor sport.

The 500 Abarth Trophy Europe features six meetings of two races each, combined with the European WTCC (World Touring Car Championship).

6 September 2009 - Autumn Italian Car Day, Gaydon
Autumn Italian Car Day is the end of season opportunity for owners of Italian cars to get together. The show has a large turnout of Italian exotica including cars from the Lamborghini Owners' Club.

18, 19, 20 September - Goodwood Revival, Goodwood, West Sussex
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s largest historic motor race meeting, which relives the glory days of historic Goodwood Motor Circuit.  But the Revival is far more than a series of races for historic cars – it is a magical step back in time, a chance to get away from the modern world and revel in the romance of motor racing as it used to be.

19, 21 November - Final IRC Stage, RAC MSA Rally of Scotland
A chance to see the Abarth Grande Punto Super 2000 in action in the UK, at the final round of the 2009 Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC).

    I'd definitely recommend Auto Italia at Brooklands, have attended a fair few times and is a really good event.

    A real mix of Italian cars in a good setting, plus also its free to visit Mercedes Benz World which is impressive even if your not a fan of Mercs.

    Both Stanford and Gaydon are well worth attending. There are usually a few proper Abarths there.

    Stanford for Maseratis, Alfas and a smattering of Ferraris.

    Gaydon for Lamborghinis, Lancias and a smattering of Ferraris.

    There was quite a good Italian day at Stone, Staffs last year. Hopefully that will be repeated. Quite a few Ferraris and Ducatis at that one. Plus a very good Italian food market.

    The Italian day at Calke Abbey was a disappointment.
