Bristol's Italian festival to celebrate anniversaries

| 14 Dec 2011

Organisers of the Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival are going all out to mark the event’s 10th running by celebrating a string of company and model anniversaries among the displays on 28 April.The annual Italian spectacle in the streets of Bristol’s historic city centre will honour the centenary of one of the world’s greatest automotive styling houses, Bertone and, fittingly, the 40th anniversary of the Bertone-styled Maserati Khamsin. Other models celebrating four decades include Lancia’s Beta, while the displays will also mark the golden anniversary of Alfa Romeo’s Giulia, along with the 10th anniversary of its 1990s replacement the 156 GTA.Line-ups won’t be limited to four wheels: show organisers are planning to include plenty of two and even three-wheeler Italian models.Entries are by prior arrangement with all proceeds from the fees going to the Help for Heroes charity.See the Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival for more.
