For one day every April, the narrow streets of Bristol’s medieval Old City are filled with hundres of italian cars and bikes. Members of the Italian AutoMoto Club and the Ducati Owners Club come together to show off a spectacular range of Mediterranean metal ranging from classic Fiats and Laverda’s to brand new Ferraris and Ducatis.

Classic Ferraris were everywhereThis was the 11th year of the event and the fantastic weather brought out the petrolheads in their thousands. This year’s theme was “Scorpions and Spiders”, bringing out Abarth models in force.

At set intervals during the day drivers are invited to start their engines, filling the streets with barks, growls and roars.
