They say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are the first few 000's:

Overall a great great FLED.

Sunning scenery, must have been great fun driving along those alpine roads. Was the 360 an inspired choice for the twisty mountain roads, or necessity due to the others being in the shop for servicing?

Unfortunately not the former.

Here are a few of my pictures from Fled 2. Fled 2 was one of the greatest weeks of my life. The excellent company, the weather, the roads, the food, the 308 GTB. And I was privileged to drive the 360 (consumate all-rounder and very exciting when you want); 430 Scuderia (ballisitic but felt very much at home after 5 minutes, wonderful sound) and 330 GTC (strong and sonorous V12 power, very fast). Over 3000km and 10 mountain passes in 6 days and the 308 ran beautifully. I am still on a high. I will never be the same.

Couldn't have said it better. I'd like to also thank our wonderful host 212Export aka Lord of the Alps.

Nice video, Boxer. It all looks so slow! I thought I was driving that GTC reasonably fast...

That is one of the problems with all the videos, you lose the sensation of speed. I have one in the F50 where we are hitting over 150 mph on a track and it looks like we are cruising down a high street.

Awesome footage, Boxer! Great images of the four fantastic Ferraris flowing through the pass. The 308 and the mountain passes taught this old dog a few tricks. It is never too late...

A few more pics.

The helicopter ride was terrific. Windy, but that just added to the dramatic views of the Jungfrau, glacier and Bond locations (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). This flight added to the pure magic of the week.

That would be great.

I think 5-6 cars would be the perfect number for a FLED. Anymore and the logistics would start to become much more complicated.

Have you any ideas where you are heading on FLED 3 and when it is likely to be?

Popular demand is for a FLED 3 in early October. Given the time of year and weather, likely will be in Bordeaux and northern Spain.

Sounds great, hope it's not too early in Oct though as I'm in Singapore late Sept/early Oct for the GP, and as I'm staying with Pete it could take a few weeks for the British High Commission to sort out my release from jail.

Great pictures and video, guys, thanks for posting! I guess you had an amazing time as you should

If FLED 3 is in late October and in France there is a chance I could meet with you for a dinner of something like that. Depending if I get my vacation on November, I might travel to Europe or the USA in late October and November.

It would be a joy to meet you, so maybe if the dates are good I can make an effort to make it happen
