    Good luck to your Mother! Looks like a beautiful day for a spin.

    I’m about to take the CS out for a bit of exercise. Just because I choose #****stayhome doesn’t mean I’m out there licking people’s faces. You can leave the house and take proper pre-cautions. Just like you and I are doing.

    Exactly. I think an A to A drive in a Ferrari by yourself is the definition of self isolation. We are not coming into contact with other people. Or touching any new surfaces. It's safer than going to a supermarket. And just as safe as staying at home. And safer than walking the dog - when another dog walker might come close to you.

    Take a mask and gloves in case you break down, and you are completely covered.

    Oh and I forgot to mention. The roads are completely empty. Where I live that's quite exceptional. It was a great drive.

    And thank you, about my mother...living every day as it comes..but along with the eggs, milk, pasta and salad was some good red wine for her!

    I got a strange look from a police patrol but there is nothing in the new rules that says a family carer shouldn't deliver supplies in a gated 430 Spider. Yet..

    Yes it happens over here. I prefer changing gear with my right hand but..we have good pubs. When they are open.

    Yep, if there’s one benefit of this it’s that the roads are relatively empty. Been driving quite a bit at breakneck speeds;) but responsibly of course :)

    To quote my friend: "I can't eat it and and I can't wipe my ass with it, I may as well drive it".

    Only if you want them to.

    The drives to the country pubs are worth it, though I don't drink warm beer myself.

    Be sure to include some disposable nitrile gloves for handling refueling!
