Bristol Italian Motorcycle Day Sunday 12th August

Postby Jim » Sun Aug 05, 2018 6:30 pm

As you may recall, The Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival did not take place this year after a long run of very successful annual events in previous years. Bristol Mod Scooter Club have very proudly taken part in this fantastic day from the very first year, so obviously we were very disappointed with the cancellation of the 2018 show.

However, all is not lost! Duncan Spokes and his team from The Ducati Owners Club Bristol Branch thought it would be a great shame not to have some sort of Italian day, so they decided to organize something, and we will be supporting their event by attending and showing our scooters.

Here's Duncan's message which explains what's happening-

Hi all
As many of you were sad to know, the Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival (BIAMF) was cancelled this year due to spiralling costs and organisational issues.
As a club we always supported the event and it was a highlight of the local calendar, so the Bristol Branch of DOCGB decided to host a smaller event which could be more easily managed by the club. We decided it had to be held within the city of Bristol, be held on private land, be for Italian motorcycles only and be a friendly venue with food, drink and surrounding attractions such as museums.
I’m happy to say that we now have an event - The Bristol Italian Motorcycle Day.

The venue is 'Steam' in Clifton which is the Old Clifton Down Railway station.
It will take place on 12th August from 11.30 - 3.30pm.

Steam has;
Excellent, good value food using local bakeries for bread etc
An outdoor barbecue on the day, Pizzas for the Italian food lover,
A beer hall with a fine selection of ales and wines. (Soft drinks are available)
Level parking in front and behind for motorcycles.
On the day there will be a large screen showing the MotoGP racing live from Spielberg
in Austria.
In recognition of the 25th year of the Ducati Monster we will endeavour to park Ducati
Monsters together as a display.

So here's the plan-

THE BRISTOL ITALIAN MOTORCYCLE DAY

TAKES PLACE THIS SUNDAY 12TH AUGUST

AT THE STEAM PUB BEHIND THE

CLIFTON DOWN SHOPPING CENTRE

WHITELADIES ROAD BRISTOL.

PLEASE BE THERE BETWEEN 10:00 AND 11:00AM.

This looks like it's going to be a really great day, so it would be very much appreciated if you could be there with your scooter and support this amazing event.

And as always, please take great care and ride really safely!
