Italian Car Breakfast Meet - Alton, Hampshire, Saturday 6th October 2018


New Member
As usual the next meet will be held at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.

This will be the last meet for 2018, before we start again on the first Saturday in April 2019. We have been getting some wonderful rare and beautiful cars this year, representing every major Italian marque, and some lesser known ones too, from classics and supercars to the more understated and everyday. All you really need to attend is enthusiasm and something Italian to come in!

The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which we can park all of our cars so as to be all together and out of the main public car park.

The meet starts at 10am. It is open to any Italian car of any age, and is completely free to attend. Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently. It typically goes on until about 1 or 2pm, although people can come and go at any time.

There are few meeting points that I am aware of; for those coming from southern Hampshire there is a meet leaving at 08:30 in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then drive up in convoy.

There is also another meet in Newbury at 0900 in the McDonald car park at - Newbury Retail Park, Pinchington Ln, Newbury RG14 7HU

We would love to see you all again, or meet you for the first time if you haven’t been before. Please do also spread the word to other Italian marque forums or social media boards that you are part of.

We look forward to meeting you,


I have my niece (and boyfriend) down that weekend, I'll see if they're up for it, I'm only 40 mins away...
