    Today was day 1. There was a great turnout. Lots of 355 & 360 challenge cars. 1 333SP, a 250 GTO, a 575, A Daytona was out there on the track as well . I had my black 512TR on the track and saw 1:05 in heavy traffic.

    Tommorow there will probably be even more traffic thus even higher lap times

    There were many great old cars that did not run today like Pete Lovely's pontoon TR, 2 Daytona Comps, a BBLM, and a TRC as well as more stuff I couldnt identify

    1 guy in a 360 Modena Challenge car spun out right in front of me at the top of the hill & ate the wall, I saw him go in, I later heard he flipped but he got out ok

    Hopefully no excitement like that tommorow

    The old classics should run tommorow when there is no stupid decibal limit

    Hi - sorry to have no idea, but I was just curious what this Lime Rock event is. I usually haven't noticed a lot of Ferrari events around, but this one was mentioned by my dealership, an email from FNA, and I saw a lot on here about it.

    So... what's the deal with this Lime Rock Event? Should I run up there, and if so, what exactly am I running up there for?

    Thanks.

    Before posting I did the most basic research, and hoped that maybe someone who had a little inside perspective could comment on just what to expect up there, since the obvious marketing glitz didn't do a lot to clue me in.

    Naturally before writing I did a little poking around... searched the forums for references to Lime Rock (saw lots of excitement about going, including planned rendez-vous in White Plains and at the Cloisters, but not much about what it actually is) and online at www.limerock.com I found a commited marketing site but not much that would tell me whether I should bother to go or not.

    So, if it's a big marketing brouhahah and that's all then fine, I won't bother. But if there's some reason why a bunch of Ferrari owners (and there aren't Really that many...) like to go, then I was sort of looking for why they do.

    oh yeah renee sounds good. meet you there at 9:30.

    schultznois first time going to the challenge days, but going because my
    shop, classic coach will be there working on the challenge cars and want to
    show support, also, itll be sick seeing all the ferraris race on that track, plus
    itll be fun driving up with my homies! thats why i'm going.

    thanks for your feedback. as a first-timer you may not be able to answer what I'm looking for, but I thank you all the same.

    for those who've been to these things before, what as an observer (as opposed to participant/supporter) should I expect? This also got my attention because both my dealership and the FNA network brought it up to me as an owner, so any reason as a Ferrari owner I might want to go?

    Thanks.

    get there around noon. watch the races and drive back.

    we would love for you to join us!
    hope the info above is enough, i will try and pm you more.

    Oh good anyway spoke to FOLI they said they ordered a new gear box from italy and it should be here mid week of next week. He then said I should have it by the weekend .
    KEEPING MY FINGERS CROSSED.

    oh i am also having the car lowered a half a inch all the way around that should make the car even more aggressive
