Scottish Ferrari Owner's Road Run

On Sunday 25th March myself along with 25 other Ferrari owners set out from Perth, Scotland for a 4 hour drive through the beautiful Scottish countryside to end up at the World famous Gleneagles Hotel for a meal and a blether.

The weather was in the mid 20c, the roads were empty and we all made spirited progress, stopping only once for a comfort break and a few photos.

All in all it was a fantastic day out and a brilliant way to exercise our Ferrari's engines!!!

I have added some photos below.

Last set of photos, the final one was taken upon my return home in my latest F430 Spider, these Ferrari's are great all rounders, they cruise easily, are great for town driving and whenever you press the loud pedal they simply come alive and change character completely, it's an ideal daily driver!.....

Peter- Looks like a great run and a nice assortment of cars. Nothing prettier than Scotland on a nice day. Spent hundreds of hours flying low level over the area in the 80s.

Thank you, I have been Ferrari & Maserati daft for years and as I spend a good deal of time in my garage over the winter I like it to be nice, it's 10m x 8m and it has a non slip floor covering that looks like granite, from a company called Flowcrete, it's very easy to keep clean and I'd highly recommend it.

See you next month when you get up here!

Haste ye back and take your lovely 575M with you, I could do with a knowledgeable Ferrari guy like you around to assist me in my modifications and fettlings!

Barry & Boxer....you guys and the rest of FLED6 will soon be enjoying these roads too, I just hope the sun shines for your visit to the North as it's still cold and snowy today, albeit that's meant to clear away in the next few days.....thankfully!

Not thankfully if you were planning a visit for some late season skiing...

It helps when the weathers onside Alex, the day was magical from start to finish, absolutely perfect in every way!

I have listed the carpet mats I bought from you so others can see the awesome quality, thanks again!

Peter

Looks like you had a great day!

In the garage picture it looks like you have Ferrari bumper pads along with every picture Ferrari ever produced.

Did you have the garage door pads made - please share if that's what they are?
