Visit 'little corner of Italy' to say 'Ciao' to Italian motors

VISITORS to a motor festival in Bristol will this month (April, 2015) be able to see some new Italian cars on show thanks to our Feeder Road dealership.

We will take a selection of modern Abarth and Alfa Romeo vehicles to the Italian AutoMoto Festival on Saturday, April 25.

Mark Hayward, our General Manager of the dealership , explained: “The festival, which celebrates its 13 th anniversary this year, is firmly established as one of the highlights of the Italian motoring calendar.

“The historic centre of Bristol is transformed into a little corner of Italy and is filled with hundreds of Italian cars, motorcycles and Lambretta scooters. It is definitely worth a visit for a car enthusiast.

“We will be sponsoring the event and taking along a selection of new quintessentially Italian cars including an Alfa Giulietta QV line, an Alfa Mito Distinctive and an Abarth 595 50 th Anniversary Edition. We will also be taking along the Abarth 595 Competizione, unless we can get our hands on the Abarth 695 Biposto.

“During the day we will also be fundraising for our Charity of the Year, St Peter’s Hospice. We will be asking for donations of £1 to the charity in return for a tasty slice of cake.”

St Peter’s Hospice cares for adults with life-limiting illnesses. As Bristol’s only adult hospice, it cares for more than 2,670 patients each year as well as supporting family members.

Mark continued: “The festival is a popular event among car lovers and we hope lots of people will come along. We always enjoy attending and seeing the classic Italian cars.”

We will be at the Italian AutoMoto Festival on Saturday, April 25 from 9am until 4pm. The vehicles will be displayed on and around Corn Street in Bristol. The featured marques this year will be Lamborghini and Moto Morini.
