Just received this which some of you may already know about...

Dear Italian Car Friends,

I hope this finds you all well, and you had a relaxing Christmas and New Year.

We are again looking forward to running our friendly and informal 'All Italian' breakfast meets over 4 dates in the coming year.

We will continue to follow the same format as in previous years, with a free to attend, no need to book, static meet held at The Departure Lounge Café, just outside Alton in Hampshire (address on the attached flier). The café has an excellent well drained field away from the public car park, on which we can display our cars, get some breakfast, and chat to fellow enthusiasts.

Our meets are held on the first Saturdays of April, June, August, and October, starting at 10am (when the Cafe opens), and running on until early afternoon, although there is no set end time.

Last year we continued to see more cars, and some wonderful examples from all major Italian marques from classics, daily drivers, and modern supercars. Everyone is welcome as long as it is Italian and you come with enthusiasm! We really enjoy the diversity we have had, and there is always something new to enjoy.

I have attached our 2020 flier in .JPG format (in both smaller and larger file sizes), and please feel free to use this for your websites, newsletters, etc. Do also please forward this email to any other Italian car friends that you may have and may find this of interest. Again the photo is from one of last year's meets.

(edit: here's a link - Breakfast Meets at Departure Lounge)

We are very grateful for your support and attendance, and look forward to seeing you again in the coming year.

Kind regards,


Thanks again, Photobucket.

Thanks Simon. we were talking about it only yesterday at the Bolney Stage lunch meeting. The first Saturday in April is the 4th.

It is always a good friendly meet which gets a good turn out and pleasant company without badge snobbery from participants.

Breakfast is good, but get in early as the queues for food can get lengthy.

For those with classic cars built before 1990 there are meetings on the 1st Sunday of each month from 2:00 pm, starting on 5th April . There is a separate parking area at all events for other cars.

Hopefully Highways Hampshire will have finished the railway bridge works which messed up the direct route last year.

Fingers crossed I'll be there for breakfast in April.
