Auto Italia - Italian Car Day

  • Date May 4, 2019
  • Time 8:30a.m. - 5:00p.m.
  • Suitable for Everyone

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 34th Spring Gathering - the UK’s first and finest all-Italian car event. Expect the site to be bursting with all types of Italian cars (and a few motorbikes).

Test Hill demonstration will be taking place, in addition to action on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit. 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!

Auto Italia - Italian Car Day 2019: Event Guide

  • Auto Italia is one of our biggest events of the year, it will be a fabulous fest celebrating the best of the Italian Automotive industry. The site will be extremely busy on the day, so whilst we have implemented extra entrance points to speed up the entry process, there will undoubtedly be queues to get in.

Top Tip: Make sure you have your ticket or exact money ready at the gate, it will help us get everyone on site quicker.

  • As the site and public parking spaces fill up we will be redirecting people to additional parking areas. Please be ready to follow the directions of marshals and keep an eye on signage as you approach the site. For more information on parking areas please read the Getting Here section.
  • This year we have additional catering outlets on site so check out the list below. There may still be queues, especially around lunchtime.

Top Tip: All our catering outlets are marked on the event map and timetable which can be picked up FREE at all the entry points and on site.

Getting Here

Italian cars & motorcycles should enter the Museum site via the Campbell Gate off the B374, please follow the yellow temporary parking signs on the local roads to guide you to the right place. If the Museum site is full, Italian cars will be re-directed to public parking areas, which are in The Heights off Wellington Way with overflow parking in the Community Park if required with park and ride buses - please follow event signage.

Drivers of Alfa Romeos now have their own dedicated entry gate which leads into the parking area in the top of The Heights, adjacent to the Museum. Please follow the temporary yellow parking direction signs to find this area. They will be labelled “Alfa Romeo Cars” with direction arrows to show you which way to go.

Parking for those in non-Italian cars is in The Heights off Wellington Way with overflow parking in the Community Park if required with park and ride buses - please follow event signage.
