The Auto Italia Concours 2012 will be held Sunday 3rd June on the grounds of Stanford Hall in Leicestershire, UK. With a strong display of Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Alfas, Fiats, Abarths, Lancias, among others, the annual Italian Concours has grown into a top-tier event for fans of Italian marques.
Lining up on the immaculate Leicestershire lawns will be a strong selection of the Italian cars in the country, with spacious grassed areas set aside for the various marques and associated owners’ clubs. The day will include the national Maserati Club Concours (which last year attracted more than 100 Maseratis) and the popular Fiat and Abarth Concours, while awards will also be presented to owners of particularly rare or interesting – in the judges’ opinion – cars. And while most of the attractions are at ground level, the day will be topped off with an aerobatic display, as Abarth GB is bringing its spectacular stunt plane.
The quality and variety of cars at the Auto Italia Concours is always outstanding, but the day is charmingly informal – simply arrive and display your Italian car of any age, colour or value. Entry costs just £12 for adults and £3 for children: and you can pay on the day, although – if you want to register a concours entry – you’ll need to do so in advance via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stanford Hall is conveniently located in the heart of England, and easy to find from the M1, M6 or the A14. See www.stanfordhall.co.uk for directions.
