Welcome to the IAMC!
We are an independent group of enthusiasts, linked by a shared love of Italian two- and four-wheeled vehicles. Many Italian car and bike clubs do not have enough members in particular areas to make local meetings and social activities viable, but by getting together such events become possible - and even more interesting!

Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival
We are pleased to confirm that BIAMF 2017 will take on Saturday, April 22nd, at our usual location centred on Bristol's Corn Street.
As always, all marques of Italian vehicles will be most welcome. This year we will be celebrating significant anniversaries of two of the most iconic Italian marques: Both Ferrari and Lambretta will achieve their 70th anniversaries this year and will be the featured marques at the Festival.
It was in 1929 that Enzo Ferrari formed the Scuderia Ferrari racing team but it wasn’t until May 1947 that the first Ferrari-badged car, the 125 Sport powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine appeared. Two examples debuted on May 11, 1947 at the Piacenza racing circuit, driven by Franco Cortese and Nino Farina. This was the first time a Ferrari-badged car was entered in a race. From such small beginnings a mighty marque was formed.
Ferdinardo Innocenti started production of Lambretta scooters in 1947 in response to the need for simple, robust and affordable private transport immediately following WW11. It had to be easy to drive for both men and women, be able to carry a passenger and not get its driver's clothes soiled. The first design incorporated all these requirements competing on cost and with improved weather protection against the ubiquitous motorcycle.
We would welcome owners of interesting examples of these marques to take part in the featured sections of the festival.
Bridgenorth Italian Automoto Festival
The first Bridgenorth Italian Auto Moto Festival took place on Sept 4th and was a great success. A report on the event can be found in here in the Archive section. We hope to stage this event again in 2017.
Avenue Drivers Club
Many members will be aware of one of our favourite regular events, the Avenue Drivers Club in Bristol. Held on the second Sunday of each month, this increasingly popular event sees an bewildering array of Classics, Supercars, Trucks, Americans, Italians (of course), and you-name-it arrive in Queens Square for breakfast, a wander and a chat. The best thing is that every month is different !
