    I did see one large RV (actually, more like a bus) with a Ferrari flag but no Ferrari. I went out to the skidpad twice during the day but the only F-car (aside from the two 360s on the track) was mine!

    In fact I only saw three other Ferraris all day: a black 308 parked near the vendor village, a red 308 that drove by, and a black 355 parked on the side of an infield roadway. Do any of these belong to an F-Chatter?

    I hope to see more of you tomorrow.

    Hey Jim,

    We were out there but David Ferrari wasn't out there until LATE in the day. The RV is after turn 7, basically look at the spot were all the cars crash into the wall when accelerating too hard, that is were it is. But you can also just look for the Challenge car as it is out there now.

    I had a great time. Much thanks to Mark, David and Joe for your hospitality. It was good to see Jeremy, Andy and Angelo again, as well as the rest of you (sorry, I'm pathetic with names!).

    I frankly didn't expect that much to eat, and the bonus rooftop access (both at the skidpad and Turn 1) was welcome; I'm just sorry I didn't bring enough film with me!

    I guess now we can answer the question: how many adults can you fit in a Land Cruiser?

    And it looked like at least a hundred people strolling by took photos of my 328. I wonder if any will show up elsewhere on the web?

    Now, all we need to do is to get Ferrari to do a better job of supporting GT racing in America..............

    It was a great weekend. Jim, all of that was David and Mark, I had nothing to do with it except for the Land Cruiser, and that was a fun and interesting story. It is still for sale, brand new, never titled, with 98 miles. I can't believe that the navigation system actually showed the track and the infield roads. I never thought that a handicap tag would be so useful but I am glad that we had it and were able to use it, but I still ready to get rid of these crutches.

    I am going to get my film developed today and I will post up pictures if they are any good.

    But I want to agree with Jim and Trevor. I had a great time there with everyone. Thank you so much David and Mark. The food was great, the beer was interesting and the view was AWESOME!!! I forgot to leave a contribution but Mark told me that you wanted a front bumper off a challenge car but the guy would let you have it. Well, I have one so the next time you come down, if you want it, it is yours.

    I was intrigued by the fact that the sticker price on the Land Cruiser was almost an exact match for what my 328 GTS was back when it was new in 1986. And the Ferrari has higher gas-mileage ratings! But, of course, it can't hold 8 people or go off-road.............

    Man, that has to be the best Petit Le Mans I've been to yet! Great to see everybody: David, Mark, Jeremy, Jackass err Joe haha, Jim, Mark, Trevor, Trey.

    David and Mark: thanks SO much for letting us hang out in the air conditioned RV and stand on top of it for the awesome view. Thanks also for everything with the Ferrari of Atlanta trip as well, Greg and I enjoyed that a lot :) and I know Greg loved riding in your car as well.

    Here's all the footage I took this weekend. One compilation video of all my Petit Le Mans footage and one from behind David's car, which has great sound I might add. You should like that vid David :D

    Nice videos, Andy, especially the sound! Now I can show my friends where the RV was located.

    When did you guys go to FoA? Depending on day and time you should also have gone to Flashback Motorworks; it's only about 10 minutes further north. Maybe next time........

    And I should point out that FoA is quite a bit further from SC than the location of this weekend's Italian Car Day.
