The annual spring meet of scooter riders returns to the Island on Sunday 27th May with Isle of Wight Lambretta Day.

Established in 1999 as a meet-up to launch Lambretta Clothing at a local clothes store, the first Lambretta Day was attended by around 20 scooters riders; it has grown into an annual event with over 300 scooters from local and visiting clubs, as well as solo riders.
