Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival

Add Bristol Italian Auto Moto Festival to your Itinerary



BIAMF 2017 will take on Saturday 22 April at its usual location centred on Bristol's Corn Street.

As always, all marques of Italian vehicles will be most welcome. This year they will be celebrating significant anniversaries of two of the most iconic Italian marques: Both Ferrari and Lambretta will achieve their 70th anniversaries this year and will be the featured marques at the Festival.

It was in 1929 that Enzo Ferrari formed the Scuderia Ferrari racing team but it wasn’t until May 1947 that the first Ferrari-badged car, the 125 Sport powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine appeared. Two examples debuted on May 11, 1947 at the Piacenza racing circuit, driven by Franco Cortese and Nino Farina. This was the first time a Ferrari-badged car was entered in a race. From such small beginnings a mighty marque was formed.

Ferdinardo Innocenti started production of Lambretta scooters in 1947 in response to the need for simple, robust and affordable private transport immediately following WW11. It had to be easy to drive for both men and women, be able to carry a passenger and not get its driver's clothes soiled. The first design incorporated all these requirements competing on cost and with improved weather protection against the ubiquitous motorcycle.

The organisers would welcome owners of interesting examples of these marques to take part in the featured sections of the festival.

BIAMF 2017 is now open for exhibitors entrance applications. Entrance instructions can be seen here.

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!
