Wanted: Participants for a European Alpine Drive - July 2016

Hi all,

I recently purchased a 2009 430 Scud from a dealer in Frankfurt, Germany.

I live in Hong Kong but have relatives in Germany and will be spending the month of July in Europe and want to take my new Scud for a good drive in the Alps. The car is currently stored in Frankfurt and will likely stay there long term.

My rough itinerary at this stage is to drive from Frankfurt > Austria > Northern Italy > Switzerland and loop back to Frankfurt through the Schwartzwald.

The idea is to take in as many passes and good roads as possible. I have an Amazon shipment of Maps that's just arrived and will begin the detailed planning shortly. Iam a good navigator and will happy to be the leader but this will be my first time in the Alps and will be happy to take a back seat to any participants familiar with the area and its roads.

Iam somewhat flexible on my timing but plan to do the trip in the first half of July.

At this stage I'll be doing the trip by myself (perhaps my wife will join) as I don't know any enthusiasts in Europe yet and would love to meet some local Ferrari fans and drive some great roads together.

I intend to do the loop in around 5-7 days.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

Best Regards,

Max

Great to hear from you Colin. Thanks for your reply.

I have now locked in dates and times for the Alpine Adventure, more details and dates are in this link: Alpine Assault - July 2016 (Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria) - FerrariChat.com

Essentially there's a group of guys meeting in Zurich and we'll do the Big 3 passes there before crossing into Italy where we'll spend 3 nights to drive the abundance of great roads there. From there it's North into Austria to do Grossglockner and back to D.

I hadn't envisioned going as far down as the lakes but is getting yourself to the Dolomites a possibility at all?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Max,

That plan sounds interesting! I may be able to join you at least for part of the trip if not all of it. Please contact me.

Наздраве, Цветан!
