RED Motori, the Italian car specialist garage based at Spetisbury, near Blandford, are to sponsor this year’s Concours gathering by the Wessex branch of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.
Dubbed the ‘Show and Shine’ event, the Concours will be held at the Langton Arms, Tarrant Monkton, near Blandford, on Wednesday 4th July, starting at 7.30pm.
There will be five classes for Alfa Romeo: cars built in the 1950s and 1960s; in the 1970s; in the 1980s; in the 1990s to the present day; and a new category for the best presented car. Last year’s event attracted 26 cars and organisers are hoping to beat that this year.
Nigel Varney, secretary of the St Leonards-based Wessex branch of the AROC, said: “This is intended to be a fun event open to all Alfa Romeo cars. The idea is to get everyone to display their cars and enjoy a great evening. The cars will be judged and trophies will be awarded to the best car in each category.”
Andy Bowley and Dave Summers, of Red Motori, are Italian car enthusiasts and have been Alfa Romeo and Fiat specialist for more than 10 years.
