    An entourage of Ferraris from HK was making its way to the Shanghai F1 race when 1 member and his wife crashed into a construction truck. Both were killed.

    This is so sad....I wonder if he was an F-chat member. Anybody here know the driver? :(

    觀戰遇車禍港法拉利車迷亡
    9月 24日 星期五 23:55 更新

    香港一群法拉利跑車「發燒友」組成車隊到上海觀賞F1賽事,但北上途中在杭州發生車禍,一對夫婦死亡。



    杭州交通部門知情人士透露,死亡姓劉男子48歲,其姓蘇妻子46歲。兩名死者的遺體已運送至杭州市殯儀館。死者家屬將於周六上午前往杭州市警局辦理手續。

    由香港法拉利車主會發起、40輛法拉利跑車組成的車隊周二由香港出發前往上海,觀看格蘭披治一級方程式(F1)大賽。車隊於周三下午4時左右抵達福州,在福州西湖大酒店休息了一晚後,於周四出發前往杭州。

    在經過浙江溫州、台州後,駛入上三高速公路,抵達浙江紹興境內。當車隊途徑一彎位時,由於道路施工,兩條行車線改為一條。車隊其他車輛均安全通過,但一輛寶藍色法拉利跑車由於過彎速度過快,加上彎道險急,撞上正在路邊施工的工程車尾部。車隊其他車輛立即停車報警。姓蘇女子當場死亡,劉姓男子送醫院搶救後不治。

    發生車禍的上三高速公路由於地處山區,只有雙向四條行車線,並且道路起伏不平,隧道、彎位非常多。此路段的限速為每小時100公里。

    車禍後,車隊繼續行程,當晚先在杭州一間酒店休息,到周五下午3時繼續趕往上海。兩名死者的遺體也於下午由紹興運送至杭州市殯儀館。死者家屬將於周六上午前往杭州市警局辦理事故處理手續。

    據透露,這次往上海觀戰的法拉利跑車價值最低300萬元人民幣,最高的1000多萬元人民幣。

    Pic from Rennteam.com........

    "The HK Ferrari Club arranged a road trip to Shanghai to watch F1. Unfortunately, before arriving Shanghai, a 355 crash to a bus at high speed and the couple was dead. The newspaper said the speed was over 120kph; however, by looking at the damage of the car, I think it crash at around 150 to 160kph."

    The picture posted is red F-car. I wonder if these are about the same accident. I hope there was only one! Nevertheless, my condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

    Today's newspaper shown a red 355. I guess the blue description on yahoo news was incorrect.

    Oh my... now we lost a couple of Ferrari lovers. May they find happiness eternally.

    Basically the news reads: a team of 40 Ferraris headed North for the Shanghai F1 & spent a night in Fuzhou. On the 2nd day, passing Zhejiang Wenzhou, Taizhou & onto the highway which is in the mountainous region, that was under construction & the two way 4-lane became one way 2-lanes with multiple curves. Speed limit is 100kph.

    Wife is 46 surnnamed Su while husband is 48 surnamed Liu.

    My condolences...The Northwest Region of the Ferrari Club of America had dinner with the FOC of Hong Kong club on Friday night. No mention was made of this terrible news...perhaps they did not wish to put a damper on the celebration/meeting of our two clubs... :(

    Very sad, my best to their remaining families. I hope they did not have children, as this will be an extremely difficult time for them now.

    I'm so sorry to hear this news. My condolences to everyone affected. In reviewing the pictures I'm very surprised this accident wasn't survivable. Did anyone witness the accident and could explain how this happened. I would like to understand further, as I have a 355.

    One pict is of a 355 the other is a 348?

    That 348 was owned by the same guy.

    That was another accident which happened a few years ago in HK.
