8th October Italian Car Breakfast meet @ Alton

Hello All,

After the meeting on the 3rd Septempber at The Departure Lounge Cafe in Alton we have another Italian marque specific meeting on the 8th October (probably the last one till the spring)

after the last meeting we had 12 cars primary Alfa, and 2 Lancia HF intgrale's so it open to any Intalian car, we meet at the The Departure Lounge Cafe at 1000hrs,

they do a really great breakfast!! and have a good car park.

Some of the guys meet up at Hedge End (meet at Sainsburys car park by the petrol station) at 08:30 and then driving by the back roads to Alton to arrive before 10:00.

others could meet in other areas (I'm from Swindon) and did meet up with someone at Newbury (so if anyone is around there we could all meet then drive down).

Hope to see some of you there, here are some pictures form the 3rd September meet

The last meet really was good, and it is an excellent venue, so would be great to build on this with more variety.

Whilst I am not sure I will be able to attend this time, I am sure you will all have a great morning.

Alan is correct, that I would anticipate a run up in convoy for those who want to from Hedge End.

I've just put a deposit down on an Abarth so I'll be along if it all goes through.

Any further news on this? My sailing is cancelled for the day so I'm definitely available now. I'm close to hedge end so would enjoy a drive up to Alton with others if there's interest.

That's good news I'll aim to be at hedge end for 0815 if anyone's meeting there and if not I'll head off at 0830. I'll be in the red Abarth 595 Competizione and if you don't see me you'll hear me rofl

At Hedge End there should be at least one GTV cup (red) and a blue 916 Spider and a few others I believe ready for a drive up to the cafe. they normally leave at 0830hrs, and meet up close to the petrol station.

Hi all.

I cannot make this one, I will be at Castle Combe early for the last raceday of the season. I will be eating eggs/bacon/sausage there instead.

Have a good un, pictures required.

Not being a local is that a Sainsburys filling station at sainsburys, I think its obvious but just want to check, Im near J9 9 (M3 / A34) so if any other meet points closer I could meet there

From past Pistonheads meets we've met in the car park closest to the filling station indicated by the pin. I assume that's where everyone will meet.

Hi Guys

For all of you who are planning on meeting up at hedge end there are at least 3 cars so far, a Red GTV Cup, Blue 916 spider and a silver GTV . so you should be able to see them.

I'll be driving down from Swindon to the cafe so hopefully see you all at the departure lounge cafe for 1000hrs.

I had a great morning, a nice drive on the way up from hedge end and then a cracking breakfast with good company. I look forward to the next one!
