Shannons Eastern Creek Classic 2019

Sunday the 18th of August, 43 IMSMC cars were on display at the Shannons Eastern Creek Classic (SECC). We also had representation in Presidents concourse along pit lane, Both Filippo Foti & Charlie Losinno, presenting their cars..

Our day began with an extensive line of classic Italian cars in area C. 

The colours and style of each Car, standing out from afar, attracting visitors from throughout the grounds.

The SECC attracts over 1800 cars each year. If there is/was a car that you recall from yesteryear, you'll find it at SECC. The day was made up of celebrations, music, GREAT car and bikes and of course FANTASTIC company.
As midday approached, the esky's and picnic packs made an appearance - with a great deal of sharing and sampling going on - Who produced the best salami's this year?.. Too hard to call, all taste great!

At 1:00pm, the stallions from 4 Italian clubs were at the grid and off we went! Thank you to IMSMC and the vast majority of members from the other 3 clubs, but unfortunately a few individuals (NOT FROM IMSMC) attracting the attention of the field marshals, for the wrong reasons.

All said and done, back to our area C to share in our "parade experience".

Later in the afternoon, the presentations took place. CONGRATULATIONS to Charlie Losinno, once again, being awarded the Best 1940 - 49 car with his Beautiful FIAT Topolino.

The day concluded on a HIGH NOTE as ITALIAN MADE SOCIAL MOTORING CLUB,  being  announced as "BEST CLUB DISPLAY". It's a recognition of our cars, our display, marshalling, parade, our correct CVS & HVS compliance, our club shirts (in uniform) and generally everything we do, with enthusiasm, passion and in an orderly manner!

August Breakfast 2019

Sunday the 4th of August, 90 members, family and friends attended our breakfast at Grano Ristorante, Wetherill Park.

An ambiance reminiscent of the rustic days, with furniture that made many of us recall our childhood and what it was like in our homes!

The food was abundant and very, very nice. Our members making the most of the hospitality on offer. The coffee was endless and most importantly, the company was second to none. Wonderful to see so many of younger & youngest family members in attendance, we encourage and welcome our extended family to attend our events.

33 cars filled the car park with a huge variety of colours, models, brands and era's - a sight to see. The morning was a great opportunity to become acquainted with new members and have a good look at their magnificent vehicles, that each make a fine contribution to the Italian Made Stable!!

Before we knew it, the morning had concluded and the roar of Italian stallions exited the car park - a pretty site and a great sound!

Thank you IMSMC - we'll do it again, real soon!
