    I will be there Sat and Sun. If Gabi promises to show at Sun event I can talk Marion into coming and I can bring two cars. Other wise I will be there Sat with the 355 yellow on the track and Sun with the 348Spider I bought at Cavallino.

    My Challenge ie held up in CND Won't be here till 10-14 days from now. :(

    Looking forward to be seeing you all again.

    Won't be staying over night this time so...no Rachels for me.

    Martin, I am here.
    I have not registered yet and was planning to do so at the track if they let me.
    I planned on being there but the weather report says rain for both days.
    Martin and the other Squids: were you planning to go on Saturday and then drive back to Miami and up to Delray on Sunday?

    Yeah Martin, Gaby and I will both be there on Sunday. I'll call Enzo and Alfredo to bring the 360 & 550 Barchetta.Frank is also going but not Pedro and David.Saturday looks like it may be the worst day for rain. Sunday, iffy. Nothing Quick detailer can't fix.Good thing theres restaurant and bars nearby.

    trophies are getting better.
    On Sat I am already set with the 355 half Challenge car. Will try the car out. If it rains heavy will rather not. After all the car is for sale :)

    I do have wet tires with me but the slicks already mounted.

    CND Frank is what I refer to as Canada. I can not get a truck from Montreal to Miami in time.

    Show can be entered also on Sun. If you know you are coming Sun tell Jim on Sat.

    Yes, I am planning to go home atfer the track. Since you are not coming to Rachels anyway, whats the point of staying up there.

    It was OK....I was there through noon.... I will also be at the show Sunday.

    2 accidents.... a 360 Challenge Team car hit the wall pretty hard and had to be towed out and a Lambo lost it in a S turn.

    Only familiar face was Murray B and Eddy F..

    Had a GTO, P4 (I think it's a Norwood Replica) and some nice vintage.
    NO 355's, 348's F40, F50, Enzo. Was just about all 360's and a girl driving a brown 328...

    The Challenge car driver should have been shot on site. Driving in rain on slicks. How stupid is that. on top accellerating out of a turn, turn 10 of all, which is hard on dry road conditions.

    I heard it was the same driver that crashed a Ford GT40 (original) in the same turn, same wall and more or less totalled the car.

    Consensus at the track was, the 360 is a gonner.

    Did not drive up there for Concourse today. Too much rain down here. Looked dreadfull. Packed my stuff and will head to 8inches of new powder.

    I was not at the track on Saturday but I do know that the person that wrecked the 360 this past weekend, wrecked and totaled the SAME car 2 years ago at the same event! I never saw a wreck SO bad. I was there when it happened and I know the guy. At the time he was a customer of Servizio in Jupiter. They had stripped the car down to the tub and set it back to Italy to get rebuilt. I just it back 1 year later and now this......
    Ironically, when he got the car 2 years ago it was beautiful. It was delivered to Moroso in the morning and he saw it for the first time at 10:00 that morning. It looked too nice to be a Challenge car....no nicks, dents etc. By 11:45 that morning he wrecked the car in the backfield by the grandstands; between turns 4 and 5. The left side tires went on the grass and then it was all over.

    He must have had a cell phone in one hand and a big cigar in the other.

    And we thought the driving at Cavallino was questionable! Jeez!

    slicks in the rain! \how dumb is that?

    What experience does he have? He had a stock 360 out on the track on two FCA events before? Hardly qualifies as experience.

    If you wreck your car in non-competition that bad you are an idiot. You can have all the money in the world but you still are an idiot.

    Not just that you endanger your own life, but you endanger others as well. You stop the session for others while your pile of sh*t is being picked up from the track.

    This guy needs to be removed from ANY track event. In fact Paul if you point him out on the next event I will talk to the Track Steward about just that!
    Right after I tell him what I think of him.

    Martin, I could not believe hearing of this!
    The accident he had 2 years ago was the worst I have ever seen! Every square inch of the car was either, dented, scraped, crushed or broken completely off the car.
    I was not there to witness to one from the other day and have not seen the car. It is presently at a repair shop in Jupiter.
