Autumn Italian Car Day

With the forthcoming release of Veloce's The Lamborghini Miura Bible in mind, the annual Autumn Italian Car Day at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon serves as a timely way to whet your appetite for the book. The event takes place on Sunday 14th September 2008, and promises a strong Lamborghini element. The Lamborghini Club UK (LCUK) is holding its Car of the Year Awards at the event, and expects a large number of classic and modern Lambos to be in attendance.

A number of trophies will be awarded by the LCUK for the best pre-1991 and post-1991 Lamborghinis, the best V8-engined model (including Urraco, Silhouette and Jalpa), the best Gallardo, the furthest-travelled and the most well-used cars.

Lancia ClubSport will also be arriving in convoy as part of its own two-day event, driving as a collective that has been 150 cars strong in the past, when the club took part in the London to Brighton Run.

As well as Lamborghinis and Lancias, the gathering is expected to be made up of other Italian cars such as Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, and many more exotic Italian marques.

Check out Veloce Publishing's exciting forthcoming title The Lamborghini Miura Bible by Joe Sackey, or visit www.velocebooks.com for a wide variety of books currently available on Italian motors.


The ONLY book on the Lamborghini Miura to be published in the past twenty six years – and enthusiasts agree it is long overdue. Written by a world-renowned authority on the subject, featuring, among other things, a never-before-published factory chassis production register, technical illustrations, studio-supplied images and exclusive interviews with the designers of the car. This is essential reading for any Lamborghini fan.
