The Fiat X19 Owners Club are currently negotiating with the organisers to undertake a parade lap to mark the centenary of Bertone's birth. They have kindly invited the participation of our club if we wish.

It would certainly be nice to field a Stratos if this goes ahead.

I am told that Bertone's only other contributions are an Aprilia Coupe and the B51/52 Aurelia. Are there any of these around?

The problem with Silverstone Classic parade laps is the frustration. Crawling around, and stop starting is not my idea of fun.

Well, a problem if you're used to it maybe. Personally, it was a real thrill to be actually able to drive the Grand Prix circuit - both the old layout and the new layout. True, there was some waiting and a bit stop start but I did get up to 70mph doing the laps (both of them). It all added to the day and did make it feel really special. If I was offered the chance then  I'd happily do it again ....

And me. Yes the hanging around was a bit of a pain but certainly worth it once we got on the move and the pace car disappeared Grin

Surprisingly part of my Flavia Vignale was made by Bertone!! The wind winder mechanism. Was this contracted out by Lancia or Vignale......Huh??? Huh?

This is now definite! The contact for the X1/9 club is Juliet (07787793204) - in case I lose it and for reference for whoever is in charge for LMC in 2014.
