Hi Richard, no I didn't because the Gruyère tour they'll do is something I know so well and do it myself quite often as I live in this region. You drive on open road, speed limits must be respected and you know what that means in Switzerland But if you're not too familiar with this area, it can be very nice discovery. The only part that may interest me is the climb from Montreux to Caux (closed road) but you cannot subscribe only for this part.

But I will for sure go there pay a visit and meet up with my friends who registered for the entire package.

Ok hope to see you around, do you think it will largely be a Ferrari Event like 2006 even though it is open to other Marques. One needs a helmet it seems

Hi Richard,
It was really nice to meet you in Montreux. Very nice event and loved to see the F1 racing through the city on Sunday! Made me regretting even more the today's F1 cars with their horrible turbo V6 noise...

The Austrian & Italian mountain passes are fantastic! We are 12 Ferrari cars with the Swiss Ferrari Club, including two 458 Speciale and I was the only manual gear. We never seen so many super-cars especially at the Stelvio pass (almost 2800m high!) Weather was a challenge in the beginning of our tour with lots of rain, mud and even snow Will post a picture as soon as I have a chance.
