What a great day! With 135 cars through the gates we were delighted with the turnout for this inaugural event. Not even a couple of heavy showers could dampen the spirits and plenty of attendees ventured out into the beautiful Painshill Park to explore the follies, grottos and lakes. The variety of cars on show was exceptional, from new MiTos and Giuliettas from local dealer, HWM, to an 8C, Suds, Alfettas, lots of 105-series cars, SZs and an RZ, Montreals and a 1900 Super Sprint.
Many congratulations to the winners of the fun concours, as follows:
Best Car of The Day: Robbie Webb, 1900 Super Sprint
Best Everyday Car: David Taylor, 916 GTV
Most Shades of Red: Roger Eke, 916 GTV
Best Non-Red Alfa: Simon Jeffs, AlfaSud Ti
Most Badges on an Alfa: Robin Rands, Alfetta GTV
There was also a lively prize draw based on ticket numbers. First prize was a £200 service voucher generously donated by Bianco Auto Developments, with further prizes offered by Classic Alfa.
