Festival Italia 2020, Brands Hatch

After all the cancellations of 2020 we were lucky enough to have a club gathering at Festival Italia at Brands Hatch on 16th August.

We had six lovely cars on show in the display area along with another club member in the general parking. Two of our number were new members, which was great to see, hopefully this can continue once we get back to arranging more regular events again.

In attendance along with ourselves was Mark, David Davis, Jon, David Ullathrone, James & Fulva and Ashely & Sophie.

The Festival was smaller this year due to the limitations on numbers but there was still some great racing to watch and lots of nice Italian machinery on show. We also had a great spot right alongside the start finish line of the track which allowed us to relax by the cars while they got admiring glances from the other visitors. The Lamborghinis did try to rival our eye catching Barchetta colours as well!

Best of all it was great to catch up with good friends and make some new ones. Let’s hope that we can attend more events soon when things are a little more back to normal and club members should always receive early invites and notification of upcoming events. If you have an idea for a meeting or event please let us know via info@fiatbarchetta.uk or via the “contact us” form on the website. If the club can offer support in any way we will be happy to do so.
