For the second Saturday in succession I have found myself at Sywell Aerodrome with my 360; this time though it’s all about Ferrari’s, with the second National Ferrari Owners’ Day, organised by the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain. It has been pretty much the same as last year: a large Ferrari-only parking area, a separate area for those participating in the runway experience (this year I was in group 4, so had to wait until 3:15 for my slot), a hanger full of items part of the Silverstone Auction, and of course: an small air display!
Saturday was the (postponed) first National Ferrari Owners’ Day, hosted by the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, open to all owners whether or not they were members. It was originally scheduled for 2020 but was delayed for obvious reasons. With a range of events and displays it was set to be an exciting day.
To round off a truly memorable anniversary year for Ferrari and the Owners’ Club, Ferrari hosted their annual racing days once again at Silverstone this last weekend. As members of the Owners’ Club we were encouraged to attend—in a Ferrari of course—to join in the festivities. I had intended to be there last year but other events took precedence; not this year with two major milestones to be celebrated. And despite the damp start the day quickly brightened up beautifully, allowing hundreds of exquisite cars to glisten in the autumn sun.
It certainly has been a busy few weeks: not only was the 360 recently serviced, it also took us to a wedding in Cardiff. This gave a short opportunity to make a little noise as we drove through the Brynglas Tunnel (despite the heavy traffic). It also piqued the interested of some younger wedding attendees who appeared to have their afternoon made when I offered them to have their photographs taken sitting in the drivers seat.
