    No word on the Chicago Auto Show, but it is not cancelled. They say in the springtime. Also no update on the Ferrari Club literature and art show at Continental Ferrari yet.

    They are having the Miller Indy event now in mid July. This is a great vintage race at a historical track. Very much worth a visit, and it's not expensive to get in.

    True, they have not had a good one since that year Alfa Romeo brought all the museum cars over. I think auto shows were in trouble before Covid 19 with companies like BMW skipping most of them. We may only have a few good ones from now on, maybe Geneva, New York and Tokyo. Paris and Frankfurt have not been as good for a few years now and Detroit and LA also have been poor quality lately.

    From Hugh of the Ferrari Club of America Chicago Chapter on the Ferrari Expo 2021:



    I've been trying to organize the 2021 edition of the Expo, but we will have to wait for next year.

    Continental Auto Sports is remolding their showrooms and the construction will not be completed until April or May and then we have the Covid virus that has and is disrupter everyone’s life. We cannot host the event until the health risks diminish and that will take several more months to be accomplished.

    I know this Expo has been an important event and the perfect way to start the season, but not this year. I think we will be able to organize the 2022 Expo without difficulty and Continental is looking forward to hosting the Expo.


    Thank you for your understanding and support for the show.



    Take care, be healthy and sane.



    Hugh

    Hopefully in a few months they will be able to start having regular car events open to the public. I know Wisconsin is open this summer so I will be heading up to Road America for every event. Indy car weekend will have a large vintage Indy draw to go along with the regular race this year.

    Ferrari Central States events 2021. They have the fuelfed event in Winnetka listed, but not showing on the fuelfed calendar yet. Hope Geneva happens, and no reason it should not. Time to get back to normal with a vaccination card or covid test for entry at the events. The airlines are back to full domestic schedules in June, Chicago land needs to open up, including on the northshore!!

    These events may or may not change depending on conditions. Contact Fuelfed and the FCA Central States to get updates. The Fuelfed calendar is not showing the updates yet.

    Just updated on their facebook, this is going to happen this year in Wisconsin along with all the Road America events. The Miller event has 60 vintage racecars, and none are replicas although a few were restored from a basket case.

    I have heard from several sources that it is almost certain the Geneva Concours and Winnetka Fuelfed Ferrari event will happen this year. Make your plans and get your cars ready. Both are on the FCA Central States calendar.
