The 15th edition of MITCAR  keeps  up the tradition by being held at a new venue each year. DEENE PARK is adjacent to the village of Deene about 4 miles to the north east of Corby, 12 miles south of Stamford. It is easily found with MITCAR entrance clearly signed off the A43 Corby to Stamford road.

The design is similar to last year’s very enjoyable event at Rockingham Castle. We will have an extensive area of parkland for the MITCAR display, with the delightful 16th Century house just a short walk away. Whilst many will want to picnic, the house features a tea rooms serving light lunches, tea and cakes. The beautiful gardens will be open from noon and the house will be open from 2pm to 5pm, with guides available to talk about the extensive displays.

Gates will open at 10.30am.

Awards for best presented cars - including the Camshaft Trophy for car of the day by public vote.

Awards at 3.30pm.  

(House opens 2pm, Gardens 12pm)

In the MITCAR area there will be trade stands and dealer displays, including Chris Variava Alfa Romeo, AutoGlym, Italian Miniatures, plus catering and toilet facilities, and more!

Dogs are welcome in the MITCAR area if kept on a leash, but are not allowed in the gardens or house.

IMITCAR promises to be another excellent relaxing day in beautiful countryside, surrounded by some fabulous cars and friendly company.

MITCAR IS NOT FOR PROFIT, it is organised by members of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club - real enthusiasts, for enthusiasts of ALL Italian marques. Do come and support it, ALL Italian cars welcome! (We also fit in non-Italian makes too.) You don’t have to be a car club member.

From www.deenepark.com

“Deene Park is a most interesting house, occupied and developed by the Brudenell family since 1514, from a mediaeval manor around a courtyard into a Tudor  and Georgian mansion. Visitors can see many rooms of different periods, providing an impressive yet intimate ambience of the family home of many generations.The most flamboyant member of the family to date was the 7th Earl of Cardigan, who led the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava and of whom there are many historic relics and pictures on view.”
