Clubcento are please to announce that once again we will be attending this years MITCAR at Elvaston Castle, Derby.

Please find attached the official press release below.

MITCAR 2012 - Midlands Italian Car Day

Sunday 5th August 2012

Elvaston Castle – between Nottingham and Derby

Midlands Italian Car Day is back in the East Midlands for its 12th year. The venue is historic Elvaston Castle, which is just off the A52 near to Borrowash.

On Sunday 5th August we will have exclusive use of the large showground site, with its own entrance a few hundred yards from the main public access to the castle.

MITCAR will open at 10.30am and stewards will be on hand to park the cars by marque. The entrance fee will again be a modest £5 per Italian Car, once again confirming a commitment to give best possible value. This will entitle all attendees to free entrance with direct access to the imposing GradeII listed gardens and lakeside walks.

There is a café in the castle courtyard serving drinks, snacks and light lunches and there will also be a catering van on the showground for our exclusive use.

Although imposing from the outside, the castle building has fallen into disrepair is generally not open to the public but the extensive grounds and environs are well worth the visit and in the stable yard there is an information centre and gift shop.

As always visitors in any Italian car will be welcome and we can expect both classics and modern.

There will again be a competition for ‘Car of the Day’ (The Camshaft Trophy and Cup) and this year this will again involve a popular vote. Other awards will be made too.

The competitive element is always light-hearted at MITCAR and sometimes the unusual and off-beat is rewarded, which might not be the case in a conventional Concours. It all adds to the fun! Prize giving will be at 3pm and, as has become the custom, all those who filled in voting papers will be entered in a prize draw.

Dealership displays are expected for Alfa Romeo and Fiat, and some other trade stands will be present.

Many will want to picnic and sensible barbecues will be allowed. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash.

More details can be found on the websites The address is: Elvaston Castle, Derby., DE72 3EP
