2020 Events



Over the last 34 years, the Italian Car Day at Brooklands has become established as the UK’s premier event for owners and admirers of Italian cars. The great thing about the Italian Car Day is that you never know exactly what you will see, but it is always spectacular – and there are inevitably some intriguing surprises. Rarely do you find such obscure and exotic Italian machinery, even at the most exclusive (and expensive) static events. Yet at Brooklands, the most fantastic cars are not only running, but running at speed – up the test hill and on the adjacent Mercedes-Benz World test track. And visitors can get closer to the action than at almost any event, anywhere in the world. Car clubs and registers have their own dedicated display areas. Visitors can expect to see everything from Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and De Tomaso, to Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and many rare coachbuilt special cars.

Visitors arriving in any Italian car, be it a Fiat or a Ferrari, will be able to park in the areas dedicated to the relevant marque, and become part of the show. Finally, of course, there’s the historically fascinating Brooklands Museum itself. For so many reasons, it’s a day not to be missed.

Auto Italia is excited to introduce our Northern Italian Car Day at Raby Castle in 2020. The event will take place at this stunning venue on Sunday 12th July.

Raby Castle is without doubt one of the most impressive intact castles in the North of England. Built in the 14th century by the powerful Nevill family, it has a fascinating history. Discover what this tremendous building and it’s parkland setting has to offer. Take an enlightening tour, enjoy a delicious lunch or explore the great outdoors.

Sunday July 19th

This exciting event will be repeated at Brooklands in 2020. It is a rare opportunity for the public to get close to exclusive motorcars and also see them in action. Historic Brooklands has easy access via London’s arterial motorways and is conveniently located just within the orbital M25. It has excellent new aviation and motoring exhibitions including the Concorde Experience, 4D cinema and London Bus Museum.

The event has proved to be popular with car clubs that put on complementary displays for members and also take part in the Test Hill runs. Owners of supercars are invited to contact the organisers for an opportunity to take part in the track demonstration and the hill climb.
