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!

Italian Passion For Speed at Cardiff Bay - Sun June 9th

This year's Italian Passion for Speed will be the fourth running of the Cardiff-based event, and for 2019 it has grown into a spectacular two-day fixture. This is possible thanks to the formation of two new partnerships: the Dreams and Wishes charity (www.dreamsandwishescharity.org) and the World X Series Rally team (www.worldxseriesrally.com).

World X Series Rally, which organises supercar events across the globe, is staging a cross-country run of seriously desirable cars from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, via the Morgan factory in Malvern (Worcestershire) and then over the Brecon Beacons, right into the heart of Cardiff Bay,  arriving on Saturday 8 June. On arrival there will be live music and a fashion show held in the main arena. The Welsh Guards, Miss Wales and other high-profile personalities will be on hand to greet the drivers as they enter the arena.

On the following day a larger event takes place in the same location. Starting at 7.30am and lasting until 4pm, this event will welcome all Italian performance machines – cars and motorcycles. Previous events have seen a wide array of Abarths, Maseratis, Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Ducati and Aprilia bikes usually dominate the motorcycle display, with strong support from Moto Morini and Moto Guzzi.

Please contact david@italianautomotoclub.co.uk for entry enquiries.


Great Western Italian Day at SSGB - Sat & Sun 15 & 16 June

Join us on Bristol’s Historic Harbour at Brunel’s SS Great Britain on 15 & 16 June for an Italian car display with a difference! We have been invited to display our cars beside the SSGB site on this Fathers Day weekend. Each car entered will receive two free entry tickets (worth £15.70 each) to the SS Great Britain; which made its maiden voyage in 1845, the dockyard where she was built and the new Brunel Museum ‘Being Brunel.’
In addition you will be able to sample the many interesting features of the Historic Harbour including historic cranes, ships, boats, steam locomotives and the M Shed  museum. The Matthew (a replica of the caravel sailed by John Cabot in 1497 from Bristol to North America, thereby beating Columbus to the American mainland!) will be available for an Avon Gorge Supper Trip on 15th and a harbour cruise with fish & chips on 16th.

Numbers will be capped at 26 cars each day and entry will be by pre-booked pass only on a date received basis. Please contact paul@italianautomotoclub.co.uk stating which day you intend to come and the car you will bring. Entrants should arrive between 09.00 and 10.00 hours and are requested to stay until at least 4pm. Please apply ASAP as we must be confident of entry numbers. Remember – bring your father on Father’s Day!

The Italian Quarter at Gloucester Goes Retro - Saturday 24th August

It has been some years since we staged an event at Gloucester docks, so it is exciting to return for a new event on Saturday 24th August. As part of the Gloucester Goes Retro Festival, the entire docks area will be transformed into the Italian Quarter. We have space for more than 200 cars (and bikes) alongside the docks, the setting and space is stunning, and this has all the prospects of a superb event.

We shall be displaying our vehicles alongside the Victoria Basing, using the Tall Ship entrance on South Gate Street. Display vehicles to arrive by 10am and stay to 5pm. Information and entries from paul@italianautomotoclub.co.uk

Bridgnorth Italian Automoto Festival - Sunday 1st Sept

All Italian Vehicles invited! Crowds of enthusiasts and spectators alike will swarm into the historic centre of Bridgnorth to enjoy the sights and sounds of the iconic Italian vehicles that will fill the streets of the picturesque, historic market town. Information from david@italianautomotoclub.co.uk




Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival

We regret to confirm that there will be no BIAMF in 2019. 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.
