The Italian Job 2023
Registration is now open!


(Entries limited to 50 vehicles)

START in Imola, FINISH in Turin - dates to be confirmed


We are pleased to confirm that we are planning to incorporate more ‘gastronomic delights’ into our 2023 event to provide everyone a slightly more relaxing jaunt. As ever, you will enjoy driving along some of Italy’s most spectacular, picturesque and scenic routes, along which you will have ample time to stop and sample some truly delicious wares as you visit three very diverse regions - Emilia Romagna, Tuscany and Piemonte.

For the first three days, we will be based in Imola. From here we will venture out following our famous roadbook and follow truly off the beaten track roads to Modena, home of Ferrari production and museum, and also to Modena’s second most famous son - Balsamic vinegar!   We will enjoy lunches hosted by local producers and will call into small towns and villages that are rich in history (but seldom found on the tourist map) such as Forli and Modigliana and, of course, your Mini will enjoy a parade lap or two on Imola’s F1 circuit. You can find out more here

Anyone who shares a passion for the Mini or any classic car featured in the Michael Caine film The Italian Job can enter. The aim of this modern-day Self Preservation Society is to raise money for children's charities in a fun way!
This year we are supporting Buttle UK.
Please join this year’s run or help in any other way you can.

Buttle UK helps children and young people who are seriously in need. It makes grants to meet critical needs of children whose safety, health or development are at risk. Buttle covers their own administration costs thus ensuring that 100% of funds donated will go to help a child in crisis. They can also ensure that the money raised by Jobbers is spent locally, anywhere in the UK. An important aspect for sponsors eager to support their local community.

IJ2019 raised an incredible £192,000, equivalent to over 150 grants, ranging from essentials like children’s beds and clothing all the way through to therapy and technical equipment, allowing Buttle UK to support as many as 400 additional children.
