Wessex Section - 2021 Upcoming Events


***   In light of the Coronavirus outbreak and current government advice, regrettably, the normal Wessex Section face to face meetings are cancelled until further notice  ***


NEW, March 24th

March 29th should see the return of the “rule of six” so that six people can meet up outside.  I intend to resurrect our six person “mini meets” that we held last summer.  The idea of these meet ups has been to try and maintain some degree of member engagement and momentum until we are able to fully restart our events calendar.  We will meet in a suitable car park, with a picnic chair and some refreshments and have a socially distanced catch up for an hour or so (together with a little mutual Alfa admiration!). 
By their nature, they meets are “by invitation” as I have to control the numbers.  Initially, I’ll invite individuals who supported these meetings last year but there is no intent to exclude anyone so, if you would like to come to one of these and have not been before, please contact me (David).   This time of year, the evenings will still be a bit cool (and short) so the initial meetings will be during the day, some during the week and some at weekends.  Obviously they are also weather dependent !
Upcoming events
There are few interesting events already on the calendar.  Obviously, it is not certain at present if these will be able go ahead ...but its worth noting the dates.
Thruxton Historic, Saturday June 12th – Sunday, June 13th  https://thruxtonracing.co.uk/racing/historic
National Alfa Day, Sunday, June 27th will be at Bicester Heritage on Sunday, June 27th.  This was a fantastic event when it was held at Bicester in 2019 so hopefully, 2021 will be even better    https://www.aroc-uk.com/news/2020/nad2021
Spettacolo Sportivo 2021, July 31st – August 1st, Zaandvoort.  Dates have now been set by SCARB for this year’s event as Saturday 31st July & Sunday 1st August, but whether the event is actually able to go ahead will be subject to any applicable Dutch government coronavirus restrictions at that time.  In addition, our ability to travel to this will depend on UK travel rules.   https://www.aroc-uk.com/news/2021/spettacolo-sportivo-2021
Autumn Alfa Day, Sunday, September 12th. Spring Alfa Day on April 18th  has been postponed until September and renamed Autumn Alfa Day !  It will be at Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster.   https://www.aroc-uk.com/news/2021/autumn-alfa-day-2021

Attached below is the full Wessex Section "Fixtures List" for 2020 (at Rev 1) in MS Word and pdf formats.   This is what we were planning to do in 2020 before Covid came along and gives an idea of typical Section activities in normal times !

As always, events in bold text are Wessex Section events or are events supported by the Wessex Section whilst events in light text are other events included for information that individuals may wish to attend.   Note that, on a number of occasions, our monthly meeting is NOT on our normal first Wednesday of the month.
