  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    We have to quiet during this event...the Golfers are playing across the street. Remember the line from Caddyshack? "I want you to kill all the Gofers"

    Just to clarify, there are two Car Di Gras events. The Knights of Sparta event is unrelated to the Nola Motorsports event.

    Good to see the car culture growing here!

    Our event has Been renamed "Krewe du Varoom" as not to confuse anyone.
    I am hoping that some Fcars show and represent. I have been harassed by the "rice" guys.

    Anyone else planning on attending? I believe at least two of us are planning on heading out at about 7:30 AM from the Rouses parking lot. The Rouses off of 190 in Covington.

    I believe that if you check the website there is a $5 off on Karting coupon. Just print it out and receive the discount. We will be setting up in the Parking lot between the Race Shop and Kart Center.
    All the roads leading in and out are newly paved and very smooth. Some of you that have been out previously may be concerned about such things.

    Bring the kids! It is absolutely a family environment. You don't want to miss this.
    I just got off the phone with our Director of Business Developement, Wes Ratcliff, and he says the phone was ringing off the hook today with people asking about the Cruise In.
    There will also be parade laps around the full race track. All for Free!
