Horsham Piazza Italia Rally - Easter Monday 25 April 2011

This years Horsham Piazza Italia Rally was held on Easter Monday, the start was from Rusper Village where we arrived between 10-00 am and 11-00 am, after we had admired the cars and had a chat, it was time for a briefing by Rob Lawlor, we then set off for the out of town park and ride, where all were lined up for the drive into Horsham Town Centre, the Supercars were 1st to leave, these included Ferrari, Lamborghini, Zonda, DeTomaso and Iso, our Alfa Romeo's followed in the convoy which had a Police escort, and Police also stopped the traffic at roundabouts and traffic lights to allow us through, after the Supercars were parked we were directed into East Street where our Alfa's were parked in Le-Mans style, Fiat 500, Fiat Coupe's, Lambretta's & Vespa's were also displayed in the Piazza.

We all stayed until around 3-15pm, which gave us time to have a lunch, look around the Italian Market and shops, and watch Romeo & Juliet, I was hoping to see the Venetian Parade, but must have missed that.

Donations were invited for the benefit of the Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.

What a good day out, great to see friends old and new, the sun shone and it was really warm and pleasent, many thanks to the organisers:- Horsham District Council and there Events Manager, Garry Mortimer-Cook, also to Rusper Alfa Romeo, Rob Lawlor & Angus McCleod, we look forward to next years event.

Many thanks to all Alfa Romeo owners who attended this event, I am sure you all had a good day.

Ciao, Jeff.
