Ferragosto 2017

Sunday the 20th of August the passionisti of IMSMC, presented themselves at the FerrAgosto display of Five Dock.

 For the vast majority, the day began at 430am, with all participants arriving at our cavalcata point on time...and right on cue, our stallions arrived at the Festa site!

Hats off to our club registrar, Leo Di Rocco, taking the "Bull by the horns", suddenly becoming "Chief Marshall" sending out instructions to the official marshall's and positioned our cars, ready for the public to feast their eyes!

All things considered, our contribution to the Festa was extremely significant... and the Festa's contribution to us was too! Gelato, Arrancini, Porchetta, Delicatessen delights, Food and drink all in abundance! did I mention Cannoli?

Our Club Stall was kept busy on the day and with great success. Thanks to Lino, Ori, Cate and yours trully!

Quite noticeable the smiles and inquisitive expressions of everyone that pass our vehicles... why do they have to pat the cars? Something we might work out next year....maybe!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all our participants. Your contribution to one of Sydney's biggest Italian festa is noted by some very important dignitaries.

Easter Creek CMC 2017

On Sunday the 13th of August, 40 x IMSMC cars created the most stylish and colourful display at the Shannons CMC Classic at Eastern Creek Raceway.

Our weekend began on Saturday, with a number of members setting up the garage display. A huge THANK YOU to Gerardo Mediati, Ric Capolino, Filippo Foti, Oriana and Lino De Iulio, Leo and John Di Rocco, for attending the garage on Saturday. Thank you for setting up our display for the Sunday extravaganza. Ric assisted in setting up our DVD presentation and Gerardo for setting up “The Concept” which attracted many visitors to our garage on the day.

Always wonderful to see so many cars of different makes and models from years gone by. The passion is alive throughout the fraternity!At 2 o’clock our Club Parade lap was underway... including 20 x Fiat 500s. The biggest contribution to the 60th anniversary celebration in the country. Our lead cars were made up of another 20 Italian Machines of classic makes and models – certainly lending itself to being the biggest club display of the day.

We also Thank Carmine Losinno and Emmanuel Ziino, for participating in the Presidents concourse with beautiful examples of a Topolino and Alfa Spider respectivley. Thank you gentlemen!
