Superb Season Launch At Silverstone

Our Ferrari season truly kicked off to an excellent start at Silverstone on Monday. The track day – test / media day format worked exceptionally well and the weather was kind. Some 40 members’ road cars enjoyed the day in separate Touring & Sports sessions running to normal track day rules. The 36 Competition cars however were given the freedom of the National circuit running to test day rules. The competition sessions were particularly entertaining but all behaved admirably and there were no incidents. It was particularly good to see new or returning drivers plus new cars and new liveries.

Our photo shows Chris Butler’s newly black 328 which this year is enjoying the support of Barkaways. Originally red and raced well by Jeff Simpson it then became silver with Richard Allen before passing to Chris. It will be at Spa next week for the FCRS event on a grid of some 37 cars, possibly the 2nd largest grid seen next to the 40 cars that raced at the Coys Classic meeting years ago. We wish all a safe and happy week-end.
