2018 Events

Auto Italia at Brooklands

‘Italian Car Day’
Saturday May 5th

The 33rd Italian Car Day will be held at Brooklands on Saturday May 5th. With over 6500 visitors last year, this event is the largest gathering of Italian cars in the UK and possibly the largest outside of Italy.

2018 will be a milestone for this popular event as it marks the completion of improvements to the museum infrastructure. The relocation of the Bellman hangar has freed up much needed display space and provides an uninterrupted view of the former race track start and finish straight from the paddock all the way up the banking. The restored hangar is now home to the “Aircraft Factory”, which houses a superb display of part restored aircraft and artefacts. Check out the P1127 Harrier prototype suspended from the ceiling.

The event is open to all Italian car owners and there will be road signage directing cars to the appropriate entrances. There will be parking for other marques via Mercedes-Benz World. New this year is a dedicated entrance for all Alfa Romeo and Abarth owners via the The Heights. It is highly recommended that all Italian car owners pre-book their discounted entry tickets through the Brooklands website. Apart from the cost saving, Italian cars entering via the Brooklands Road entrance will enjoy fast track entry.

An action packed programme will include the demonstration of selected cars on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit and the challenging Test Hill. The theme for the track entry this year will be supercars and Italian classics. The Test Hill entry will be pre-booked and open to all Italian cars, some spaces maybe available on the day. Owners of suitable cars are invited to apply to organiser Phil Ward for consideration. Email mail@philwardevents.com
