BIAMF has run successfully for the past 13 years without a break and it is enjoyed by thousands of car, bike and scooter enthusiasts. BIAMF is firmly established as one of the highlights of the Italian motoring calendar, as the historic centre of Bristol is transformed into a little corner of Italy, filled with hundreds of Italian cars and motorcycles. Centred around the historic city centre areas of Corn St and the St Nicholas market, the surrounding streets are closed to allow exhibitors and enthusiasts to enjoy Italian Automotive excellence in a unique setting!

However, we regret to confirm that there will be no BIAMF in 2018. The organisers have matters in their personal lives that would heavily restrict the amount of time they can devote to the many organisational tasks needed to be completed to achieve a well run event. In addition to this, the charges payable to Bristol City Council are set to increase dramatically, and we need to consider how to address this without passing too much additional cost to entrants.

We are therefore taking a break to consider our options for the future. We wish to thank all the entrants, marshals, sponsors and the St Nicholas Market staff who have supported us in the past and we apologise for the disappointment this announcement will cause.

In 2017 we celebrated the 70th anniversaries of Ferrari, Lambretta and the Lancia Motor Club. It was also the Fiat 500 Club’s 25th anniversary. Notable model anniversaries are Lancia: Aprilia 80th - Flaminia 60th - Fulvia Sport 50th - Hyena 25th - Kappa Coupe 20th, Alfa Romeo Giulietta 116 – 40th and the Fiat Nuova 500 - 50th. Once again there was a grand turnout of iconic Italian cars, motorcycles and scooters, all ushered safely into position by the ever willing band of volunteer marshals, without whom the event could not be held. This year we were visited by TV personality Kevin McCloud who entered a 1955 Alfa Romeo 1900 C SS and a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder 2.0. We are most grateful for the support of our event sponsors (see further down) and particularly Motor Sport Vision Racing who sponsored the awards.
