Western Sydney Airport Run

We heard the Cry! "The Italians are coming!"

Well, not quite! Saturday the 30th of July, 55 members and family visited the "Western Sydney Airport Exhibition Centre." What a sight! 30 Italian machines gracing the car park, with the airport construction site in the background, on a perfect winters day. Sunshine, blue sky and the colours of Italian classics in the car park!


Our group was invited into the exhibition centre, for a very informative presentation on the "Inception, current status, progress and future" of the future airport! Said to be the biggest construction project that Australia has ever undertaken! Runway one is currently under construction, 3.7Km long and 60m wide. We thank Giovanna Romeo & staff of Western Sydney Airport, for allowing us the opportunity!

 After our visit, we made our way to the Luddenham Cafe'. Upon arrival, we were greeted by  owner & IMSMC member Daniel Barardinelli.  50 hungry IMSMC members (that also needed a good coffee) were catered for 100%. We thank Daniel & staff for looking after us. Great service, great food & great coffee! Each attendee received a complimentary coffee ( Thanks IMSMC) and Lino De Iulio provided a Dutch refreshment ( In-a-can) which was consumed delightfully!

 A wonderful experience on a perfect Saturday.

Dakota Cafe

Sunday morning the 24th of July, 35 members with family enjoyed a morning at the Dakota Café, in North Ryde.

A special appearance by a number of Cavallini and a significant assembly of "Cavalluci" graced the carpark of the café.

 Interestingly (as an early arriver), it was obvious that the Italians were in town, as the sweet buzz of high lift cams entered Waterloo Rd and decelerated into the Cafe' car park. What a WONDERFULL assembly of Italian Machinery!

 Before long, our "hungry jockies" placed their order and BRUNCH, was served!

It's is great to see and hear such a great bunch of members & family, enjoying their mid morning around great cars, great food and great people! Thankyou to all in attendance and thankyou to the friendly staff of Dakota Café for their service and fine quality food!

AGM 2021/22

On Sunday the 3rd of July. our 2021-2022 Annual General meeting was held at the Strathfield Golf Club.

51 members with many partners were in attendance. Our President expressed his gratitude for the attendance (as Sydney was drenched with a third rain bomb), yet many still braved the elements to attend a very important event (required) on our club calendar. With formalities completed, we moved on to two important proceedings;

1. The committee for the forthcoming year was announced as unchanged!

2. Seven members were presented with "gifts of gratitude", including Tony Albanese, Gerardo Mediati & Nat Stillone, for their invaluable assistance in assisting many of our members while travelling on long distance events ( historic motoring brings the joy of roadside breakdowns...sometimes), but with these guys with us, we always arrive to the event and make it home, safe & sound.

Bruno Ferro & Daniel Cipri; for their time & effort in producing professional, high resolution images & videos summarising our events. Frank Rocisano, for the many "cake" contributions at our events. Tony Campisi for his HUGELY discounted "condiments" and support of many club fund raising activities. To each a HUGE THANK YOU.

At the completion of our meeting, members were offered a complimentary coffee ( Thanks IMSMC) and for many, utilised the bistro services of the Club and remained for Sunday dinner.

We look forward to the forthcoming year, enjoying diverse events and each other's company!
