One of the biggest events of the year at Brooklands celebrating the UK’s obsession with all things Italian. This will be Auto Italia’s 26th Spring gathering - the UK’s first and finest all-Italian car event. Expect the site to be absolutely full of all types of Italian cars (and motorbikes) with action on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit and Test Hill. In previous years there have been over 200 Ferraris alone! This year there will be just as much to see and do, including many trade and club stands so come early, bring your camera and plan the whole day at Brooklands!
There will be some very special cars on display in the Paddock. These include the unique AC 378 Zagato prototype from the Brooklands Motor Works that was recently at the Geneva Car Show and the only Maserati Bellagio in the UK. This bespoke estate car by Touring Superleggera is one of only five built.
The programme for the day is as follows:
08.30 Gates open
11.00 Drivers’ briefing for the Mercedes-Benz World track demonstration
12.00 - 13.00 Mercedes-Benz World track demonstration (followed by the Silver Arrows)
13.00 Lunch break
14.00 Drivers’ briefing for Test Hill
14.45 - 15.30 Test Hill demonstrations
17.00 Event closed
