Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival 2011

Bristol Italian AutoMoto Festival
Saturday April 16th 2011

We are pleased to announce the date for the Ninth Bristol Italian Automoto Festival (BIAMF). The Festival is the best event for Italian vehicle enthusiasts in the UK.

The Festival has become a huge success and is a regular highlight to the City’s busy calendar.

Focussed around Corn Street in Bristol's Italianate City Centre, the bikes and cars will be parked 'Latin Style' in what will be the most charismatic, City Centre Moto festival the Country will experience all year. The morning and afternoon “Start your engines” sessions, will make the 'Old City' shake to the sounds of pent-up horsepower, unleashed for the joyous appreciation of the owners and spectators alike.

The BIAMF will take place in Bristol City Centre on Saturday, April 16th and will have Ferrari as the featured car marquee, a true Italian Corner Stone. Benelli, who will be proudly celebrating their centenary will be our featured two-wheeler marque.

Planning is in progress and details of how to enter will be appearing shortly, so watch the website! Prospective entrants should make early contact as spaces will be limited.

All Show & Car related enquiries should be directed to Paul Hanmore of the ‘Italian AutoMoto Club’ (; [email protected]

The Bike Zone will again be organised by the Ducati Owners Club, Bristol Branch. Any enquiries specific to the bikes should be made to Sean Good (; [email protected]

Hello one and all,

Plans and organisation for this year’s BIAMF are all well under way and appear to be progressing well. As I am sure you all know we again have two great Italian corner stones as our featured Marques this year; Ferrari and Benelli.

I am sure you will all be pleased to know that the whole plan and basic structure of the Festival is unchanged with only some small minor changes. The first of these is the sad loss of some of our festival sponsors, and secondly is Bristol Council’s decision that this festival now needs and requires full planning and control. The later of these has seen them now introduce a Festival licence in order for the festival to go ahead. Obviously both Paul and I have, however, tried all our best endeavours to ensure that the full cost of this is not simply passed to any hopeful participants. As such I would like to let you know that on a whole things will not change from last years format. Cars are still being asked for £5 in order to display at the show. For us motorcycles there has been a slight increase in that we are now going to collect £2 from each participant. This is simply to go toward the festival costs and licence and insurance – and any possible profits will once again go to our Festival charity HELP FOR HEROES.

The other reason I am making contact at this early stage is because I would also like to address motorcycle organisation. We did have a few issues at last years show and so this needs to be sorted so as to avoid any of last year’s chaos. Basically, I normally request participation from each Motorcycle Marque. With each Marque asked to provide two or more (many have found that four is more ideal) on site marshalls as well as two or more ride in marshalls. These will be responsible for organising their groups to ensure that we can control the Marque-by-Marque ride in as well as controlling your access to the festival and the on-site parking. All of this makes for a much smoother and ride in to the festival and will help to ease the real congestion spot of parking the bikes up at the Festival Site.

Personally I know I did not help matters on this front and so in order to address this I will endeavouring to organise the Gordano Services Meet in the morning so that motorcycles are loosely grouped into their relevant marques prior to departure. I will then need all of your assistance – in that you clearly indicate your relevant marshalls so that I can clearly talk through;
 The Order of March for the Ride-In
 That Marques Access Point at the Festival Site
 That Marques Parking Area at the Festival Site


Once these Marshalls make contact with me ([email protected] – please specify which marquee you are marshalling for and whether you are a ride-in or on-site marshall) I will then be able to provide you copies of the route plan and map(UNCHANGED FROM LAST YEAR), an example of the route markers (for anyone who does manage to get lost), as well as a clear access point and parking plan (to show how you enter and where you park).

I will look forward to hearing from you all…
