Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival
Saturday 25th April 2009
Organised by local members of the Ducati Owners Club and the Italian Auto Moto Clubs and now in its seventh year, the Festival is the best free event for Italian vehicle enthusiasts in the UK. 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, multi-million pounds parking lot the West 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.
This year Moto Guzzi will be the featured motorcycle marque, with Lancia being the featured Car marque.
The Bike Zone will again be organised by the Ducati Owners Club, Bristol Branch. Any enquiries specific to the bikes should be made to:-

The Festival makes for a grand day out just looking at all the exciting vehicles, chatting with the owners and making new friends, and best of all it’s all free (perfect in light of the current economic climate). On top of that there are the nearby shops and markets, the Historic Harbour, Brunel's 'SS Great Britain,' and the replica of John Cabot's sailing ship 'Matthew' in which he beat Columbus to North America. Why not make a note in your diary to come on down and take part in the best free Italian vehicle festival in the country? Can you afford to miss it?
