Our good friend Phil Ward from AutoItalia has asked to promote AutoItailia's programme of events for 2017.

April 28th
Auto Italia
Driving Experience
Longcross Test Track

April 29th
Auto Italia Italian Car Day
Brooklands

July 16th
Supercar Sunday
Brooklands

October 8th
Autumn Motorsport Day
Brooklands

The format of the Brooklands events is well known but the Driving Experience was new in 2016 and is being expanded to include club displays.

Auto Italia magazine’s 2017 Brooklands Italian Car Day will be held on Saturday April 29th. To complement the event again a driving experience for owners of selected Italian cars will be repeated at a nearby private test facility (and Auto Italia’s photo location) on Friday April 28th. With the events being held over consecutive days the intention is to offer Italian car owners the opportunity to take in two neighbouring venues.

This is not a conventional track day that places stress on both cars and drivers but an opportunity for owners to demonstrate their skills. The 2-mile circuit includes fast straights, banked corners and a hill in the ‘forest’ section. The demanding nature of the course requires the use of pace cars to control the groups of cars. Numbers will be limited so drivers will have plenty of laps. The cost will include a three course Italian lunch on site.

For 2017 we are inviting clubs to display cars for a nominal cost per car. Because the venue is not open to the public attendance needs to be pre-booked. Catering will be on a cash basis. The highlight will be the opportunity to take part in a massed parade lap during the lunch break

A fuller update;

The popular driving experience for owners of selected Italian cars will return to the private Longcross test facility (and Auto Italia’s photo location) on Friday April 28th. The traditional Brooklands Italian Car Day will be held on Saturday April 29th. With the events being held over consecutive days Italian car owners have the opportunity to take in two neighbouring venues.

The Longcross driving experience is not a conventional track day that places stress on both cars and drivers but an opportunity for owners to demonstrate their skills. The 2-mile circuit includes fast straights, banked corners and a hill in the ‘forest’ section. The demanding nature of the course requires the use of pace cars to control the groups of cars. Numbers will be limited so drivers will have plenty of laps.

Because the venue is not open to the public attendance needs to be pre-booked. In the first instance Italian car owners should apply to the organisers with registration details of the car they wish to enter.

Subject to entry acceptance the cost will be £150 per car plus a three course Italian buffet lunch at £25. The fee for nominated additional drivers is £50 including lunch. Lunch for drivers' passengers or guests is £25 per person.

Owners of pre-booked Italian cars are invited to join the paddock display and space will be set aside for clubs. There will be a track parade for all cars during the lunch break. The cost is £20 per car. On site catering will be available.

Closing date for all applications is April 18th. For entries contact mail@philwardevents.com

Brooklands Museum ‘Italian Car Day’
April 29th

The Italian Car Day has become established as the UK’s premier event for owners and admirers of Italian cars, with record attendances in 2016. The event provides visitors with the opportunity to see and hear Italian cars being demonstrated on the circuit at the adjacent Mercedes-Benz World and the demanding hillclimb.

Visitors arriving in any Italian car, be it a Fiat or a Ferrari, will have the opportunity to park in the areas set aside for the appropriate marques, car clubs and register displays.

Applications are invited for an opportunity for selected interesting cars to take part in the track demonstration and the hill climb. For information contact: mail@philwardevents.com

Please note that owners of cars and their passengers selected to run on the track at Mercedes-Benz World will be required to wear crash helmets.
