    Barring complications, I expect to be at another Ferrari event, the FCA annual meet in Corning, NY. Too bad both events were scheduled for the same weekend.

    If you're referring to the show at Marietta Square, which I did last year, that's Saturday only. Sunday they had a show for military and first-responder vehicles.

    Heading down for Friday only unfortunately. Last time the Challenge series was here was in 2009 so it’s about time!

    If you are in town, you should come to the track. I have it on good authority the Challenge wont be back next year as Ferrari looks to keep the tracks changing. Races are Saturday and Sunday with different levels of Ferrari hospitality. $20 gets you in for viewing with activities all day. $300 buys you unlimited Ferrari hospitality and access. Either way, it will be fun and the weather looks accommodating as well. Stop by the Ferrari of Atlanta tent and say hello.

    Hi all I have my media credentials and am bringing both my boys on Saturday and Sunday. I'll probably bring some sort of Ferrari. :)

    Since I won't be there, I expect someone to take (and post) plenty of photos! (Of course, I'll post photos of the FCA meet when I get back.)

    I'm there Sat.

    Leaving my 308 at home, though. Rain chances too great to take a car with a top that leaks some and no a/c.

    Anyone have any info on the "owner lapping" on Saturday. Is it open to any Ferrari owner? Is there a sign-up?

    Hi all I will be there with both my boys in a Blu Scozia 612 Scaglietti with GTC Handling Package. I'll see you tomorrow for sure, Sunday is dependent on Florence.

    I went Sat. for about 1-2hrs. Pretty sad turn out compared to past Ferrari challenge events there. I did not go down to the hospitality tent since I now own a McLaren. I just remember 2003 and when the FXX's where there. They were TONS of Ferraris cars on & off the track. The only 488 I saw was the pace car. All cars I saw racing were 458s BUT I was there a short time.

    Mark....Vicky and I were up at the ESSES (Spectator Hill) area most of the day, think we left about 4pm... Pretty sure I caught you out the corner of my eye later in the day heading back away from that area.
