    Lapping sessions are available over the course of the weekend. To gain access you must book access with us and a tech inspection is required. Since it's a factory sponsored event only factory dealers can tech your car for the lapping session. There is no charge but an appointment should be made with our Service Writer, Michael Roth (678 802 5000). The tech form we use is similar to the Ferrari Club tech form. Putting your name on the list for lapping sessions can be accomplished through our Marketing Manager, Jacqueline Johnson at jjohnson@ferrariofatlanta.com.

    I heard it snowed at Road Atlanta a couple weeks ago!? Hope it warms up in time for FC.

    Great question. This bug is scary to be sure and I wonder if future plans for Ferrari might be put on hold. However, the Clienti and XX Programme will be at Road Atlanta. I am confident our event will be intact. Weather is starting to look pretty good, too. Fingers crossed!

    That is an odd restriction, as I've been on that track in my 348 and former Mondial t coupe multiple times. Just did Daytona in the 348 with the FCA of FLA in January.

    Only 3 F1 cars present, and one (from 2005) had wiped out its nose on Friday. Believe it or not, they were shipping over a new nose from Maranello, so it may be back on the track tomorrow. The 2008 car present crashed on Saturday afternoon; I don't know its level of damage but assume it's done for the weekend. The survivor is an F2004 that Marc Gene allegedly broke his own track record from 2018 in, but I never got confirmation, or what the new time was.

    The drive-in theater was a very large screen set up at the west end of the inner paddock, adjacent to the winners' podium. Surprisingly, I was the only Ferrari owner to "drive in", so I got to watch the movie from my driver's seat, while everyone else sat on folding chairs or on a single sectional sofa! Popcorn, candy and soda were available, and it was fun watching "Ford v. Ferrari" again, even though the bad guys (!) won again.

    I took a few photos, which I'll post after I get home tomorrow.

    They had a shuttle service (using big black Mercedes vans) that ran between the two paddocks, providing service to turn 10 as well. There were no vendors of any kind up on the hill where they usually are! The usual Paddock Grill behind the scoring tower was open (and very busy) and they had set up a second location serving from a trailer in the inside paddock.
