    Thanks for your quick replies !

    Indeed, celebration will happen second week of september in Maranello I heard.
    I understood together with the end of the 55 GTO anniversary tour.

    What about this world tour throug 60 countries ending this very same we in Maranello ?

    I'm not aware of any links. I got an email invite in early November, ostensibly signed by Sergio Marchionne. My cars are entered into the personal ferraris section of the Ferrari website. I suspect that's why I got the invite. It sounds like a cool event, but between the cost of the event and cost of shipping my car over for 5 days, I'm not sure it is worth applying. Still mulling it over. Application due mid-December and notification of acceptance is in January.

    That's the one I got, but it came as a PDF attached to an email, along with an application form. I just realized something odd - I got the invite at my business email address, which I never use for anything Ferrari. All my other Ferrari emails have always gone to my personal email account. This has me somewhat baffled.

    Has anyone here done anything like this before? I have not, being newish to owning a vintage car. Not sure what to expect if I were to consider applying.

    We are booked to go on the Ferrari Owners Club GB 50th anniversary tour, Maranello London to Maranello Italy, in May next year, to coincide with the start of the MM, 12 days, staying in pre arrange chateau's etc with luggage carrying service. There may also be something special arranged with Ferrari, but this has to be confirmed.

    I am not sure at this time Matt.
    I have somehow persuaded my wife to come and I think she will feel safer in the F12, but we will see what I can do, I think she was feeling sorry for me, as I have had a bit of a rough end to the year health wise!

    Thanks for info Paul.

    I assume you mean 9 & 10 September.

    Funny that the Ferrari Owners Days 2017 organized by Passione Ferrari are booked at SPA on 11 & 12 Sept. .....

    Dang! I was just thinking the same. Oh, not that I would be invited or anything, but I could imagine anyone who would turn up with their Ferrari from strange places would be somewhat welcome?

    As I did already purchase the Goodwood Revival tickets, grandstand badges, etc. as well as flights and hotels for me, the missus and some friends I will most likely just take part on the local FOC celebrations about one month earlier. :)

    Cheers,

    I am pretty sure Mel will visit the Interclassics, as the main theme is 70 Years of Ferrari!
    Europe is really preparing itself for several Ferrari celebrations with the official Ferrari Clubs, Dealers... and of course the final apotheose in Maranello, in september.

    Meanwhile, waiting for a fine exhibition, also for 70 Years Ferrari in Antwerp, Belgium:

    Thanks to all F-Chatters for posting all activities related to the Ferrari 70 anniversary (official & non-official) in order not to miss anything !

    Will the event (Sept 8-10) be open to public or exclusive to owners?
    If open to public, where can i purchase ticket to attend the event?F

    FYI, i am very familiar w/ both Modena and Maranello after visiting the two cities on few occasions.
    I believe the GTO anniversary tour is exclusive to GTO owners if i am correct?

    They were official as of Daytona last year. Marcel Massini has posted elsewhere that no more details until late July. I have my hotels booked already since last November I you haven't yet booked you are way too late and will be well out of town.

    I have just been to the Ferrari Owners Club GB, 50th anniversary and 70th anniversary of Ferrari at the Savoy in London. It was a great event, in a great location great food and great entainment, we also helped Ferrari celebrate their 70th, with a count down last night at midnight for Ferrari, as today was the day it all started. Ferrari had good presence there and they all enjoyed giving it large on the dance floor until late in the night { I may have also done this}.

    There was display of 6 historic cars, on a closed off small road at the riverside of the Savoy, but sods law I left my camera in the room, as I had not realised it was there until later on. The only photos I took were of my car being taken off to be Valet parked, so this is all I can do, not unless anyone else can post photos of the classic cars?

    Here are a few of the cars. I only saw five and the others were an F40 and a Daytona, which I did not photograph as it was being cleaned (sorry Grant!).
