Beautiful Lambretta Art

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.

12829071_1122361324450118_2663991140094056012_oHere’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.

The Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association…

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.

Lambretta Club of Scotland – Celtic Dash 2014

Lambretta Club Scotland Celtic Dash Flyer

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.
