Alfa Romeo Concours d’Elegance
The Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Australia is hosting its second Concours d’Elegance classic car display at Ormiston House on Sunday 21 May, featuring the best of Alfa Romeo, as well as the sibling marques of Fiat and Lancia.
With nearly 80 vehicles entered to display, this event is expected to be the largest public gathering of the three marques in one place ever seen in Queensland.
Some rare and impressive vehicles will be there, ranging from a 1926 Fiat Model 509 and 1937 Lancia Aprilia, though stunning examples from the swinging 60s and 70s, to the latest models fresh from the showroom such as the Alfa 4C.
Alfa, Fiat and Lancia owners are a rather special group, with a passion for their marques unrivalled by other vehicle brands, and they are looking forward to presenting their cars to the public.
They are also very pleased to be returning to Ormiston House as the historic residence and beautiful surrounds provide a perfect backdrop for their classic vehicles.
A talented local cello duo will be delivering a gentle musical accompaniment to the day and scrumptious Devonshire teas will be available from the café. The local Rotary Club will also be there with their BBQ offering tender steak sandwiches hot off the grill, or you can bring your own picnic to enjoy on the expansive lawns overlooking Moreton Bay.
And, after checking out the cars on show, you are bitten by the Italian car bug, you can buy a ticket in the raffle for a chance to win a weekend with the stunning new Fiat Abarth Spider, courtesy of Keema Cars, Springwood.
Entry on the day is $5 per adult, $1 per child, which not only gives you entry to the car display, but also the historic house and gardens.
Gates are open from 10:30am to 4:00pm, so head down to Ormiston House on Sunday for a showcase of Italian motoring history.
