The standard of the average event flyer has certainly improved over the years. Just as with scooters, there is a huge variety of styles, with some fantastic illustrations. I’ve featured the work of Glenn Reid and Adam Xyl before, here.
Here’s another piece of beautiful Lambretta art, in a graphic novel meets art deco illustration style. I’m trying to find out who the artist/designer is so I can give them full credit. I’d have this on the wall, despite the big Vespa logo!
The event itself is run by the Maldito Domingo SC. Based in the Spanish city of Cartagena, a historic port on the Mediterranean coast, it’s the largest scooter event in south-east Spain. Scooters, sand, sea, sun… and if I know the Spanish, great food, wine and beer too. Find out more here.
I’ve just discover this bunch of fellows and chapesses … an association of scooterists who “appreciate the ambience of a more genteel period in time”. They’ve got a rally coming up too… and awfully pleasant weekend near the River Severn. The poster is a lovely piece of retro design work.
Entries are closing soon (June 2nd) for the Celtic Dash, The Lambretta Club of Scotland’s 137 mile scoot across Scotland, from Oban to Melrose. If you’re interested in joining them, you’d better be quick. For full event programme, and to register, click here.
Quick note to English Lambrettista… if the SNP get their way over Independence, this might be your last chance to do this run without a passport 🙂
Personally, being a PTFC fan, I’d rather the event was renamed to the “Thistle Run”. But that’s a rather weak football joke, so if you don’t get it, don’t worry.
So, with the 2014 Scootering season kicking off in style this weekend, many are starting to think about forthcoming events, such as the EuroLambretta in Davos, Switzerland. But the Lambretta Club Austria want you to be thinking further ahead than that… and have posted this video to get you in the mood for 2015. There’s efficiency for you!
In June next year, The Manchester Lyons Scooter Club will be 60 years old. Woodsy, who’s work I have featured on here before, has had exclusive access to period footage to make in to a Diamond Anniversary movie to be shown at our 60th do in June. And here’s the trailer. Brilliant stuff, as you’d expect from Woodsy.
So, June 2014… That’s one for the next years diary… get on your scooter and get up to Manchester. Follow The Lyons on Twitter for more details @LyonsSC
