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!

News and useful information about IAMC events, products and services




Paul Hanmore

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of of our founder, dear friend, and Club Secretary Paul Hanmore last year. Paul played a huge role in the running of the club, and his passing leaves a massive void that is not easily filled. However, we are determined to carry on with the club, albeit in a slightly different format. As things stand, we will not be able to issue the same quantity of updates and communications, or local meetings. Communications will be more ad-hoc, and we will make more use of social media platforms such as Facebook. We do intend to stage Car Shows and larger events as previously, and to extend these into new venues as opportunities arise. We would also welcome any support or ideas, particularly in setting up and arranging events, in whatever capacity. Please get in touch if you are able to assist.

Bridgnorth Italian Automoto Festival - Sunday 11th Sept

We are pleased to announce we finally have approval from the Town Council for the show to go ahead this year ! The Bridgnorth show goes from strength to strength, and those who have attended before will attest to the great atmosphere at the festival, and there is plenty to do and see in the town itself! The event is always very busy so please reserve a space as early is possible.

If you are interested in exhibiting a car or bike at the festival, please forward vehicle details to enquiries@italianautomoclub.co.uk. This year we are charging £10 for car entry and £5 for bikes, payable via Paypal. After we have covered costs, we hope to make a sizeable donation to the Midlands Air Ambulance.

We are also asking entrants to bring an item of food to donate to the local food bank! This will be collected on entry, and at the end of the day The Stig will be on hand to hand over our donation to the Mayor. We hope this will be the largest ever donation to the local food back, and it is our way of thanking the town for hosting us.

For those who have not yet visited the festival, there are several video clips available online, this is one of the best from last year.

Devizes Italian Automoto Festival - Saturday 16th July

We are really pleased that the new Devizes Italian Automoto Festival went really well. Some exceptional cars and bikes were on display from all marques and all eras. The mayor was on hand to chose the car of the day, and without hesitation picked out the Fiat X19 of Olly Vayle as the winner of the Paul Hanmore Trophy. Congats to Olly, who has been a long time supporter of the club.

A video of the event is available here.

We plan to stage the event again in July 2023, this time with a road closure and the whole centre of the town available. We will be expanding the Italian theme, with a greater number of cars, and more food and traders stalls. We'd highly recommend a visit to Devizes, it is a lovely little town.


Chesham Italian Automoto Festival - Date TBC 2023

In collaboration with our friends from the Abarth Owners Club, we will be staging a new event at Chesham in 2023. In a similar format to Bridgnorth and Devizes, we will be closing off the High Street, where we will then have room for around 200 vehicles. This should be another great event in a new location, more details in due course.


Cosford Italian Wings and Wheels - TBC

This event was a great success in 2020, and we’d like to replicate that. We are in the process of nailing down a date for 2022. More details soon.



Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival

We regret to confirm that there will be no BIAMF in 2022. Organisational and commercial challenges have made this a harder and harder event to organise, and we are therefore continuing to review the situation and considering options for the future.

The Club organises various events during the year, from the major Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival to smaller local gatherings which sometimes run to more than one day. Club members can participate in planning, organising, staging and marshalling on these occasions and any assistance towards helping with these events is always gratefully received. Those who help out inevitably enjoy a rewarding experience!

For details of what we have done and have planned please see our Archive and Calendar pages. We have an interesting past and a busy future, so why not join us?
