Paul Hanmore from the Italian AutoMoto Club says, “At the 10th BIAMF we shall also be celebrating some other anniversaries: It is also 10 years since the Alfa Romeo 156GTA arrived in Britain, the Lancia Beta makes 40, the Alfa Romeo Giulia hits 50 and Bertone reaches a magnificent 100. The Maserati Khamsin, styled by Bertone and will also be 40, so we hope to see one or two of these very rare cars.

“Our featured two-wheeler will be MV Agusta, but there will of course, be the usual wide selection of other two and four wheeled Italian transport, plus a sprinkling of three wheelers. The event will again take place on the closed streets of the historic Old City area of Bristol.”

Cars and vehicles brought on a trailer or transporter must have an official pre-booked entry – obtainable from There will be a small charge payable on application to cover admin costs. There will be no ‘last minute’ entries on the day. Two wheelers ridden to the event need not be pre-booked but all enquiries please to for details of the ride in. All surpluses will be donated to Help For Heroes.
