I'd like to just pop-in for a second and welcome all Kiwi owners. If there is ever anything we can do let me know. Hope this forum provides a place to share your events with the rest of the community, and I'm sure all of us will look forward to seeing what's happening in that part of the world.

Is that you with three Ferraris, and such hospitality? Watt here! I am searching for strads, scuds and 599s for my first NZ based ferrari.

Wendy and I will be over in March, right now I plan to buy a car from Continental before I land.

Thanks again for your gracious welcome and all your help.

Welcome to the kiwi's; you guys do some amazing hotrodding there. I admire your fabrication and machining abilities and "can do" attitude.

Hope to see some interesting examples.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

My best friend is a Kiwi yacht designer named Bruce living here in the US.

Real car guy who got me into the Ferrari F1 garage as his guest and then at a later F1 race with Williams/BMW (he had designed Oracle/BMW Americas Cup boats). I can't get him into a Ferrari though, he owns a Lotus Exige track car and drives an Audi R8.

Good-luck winning the Americas Cup and "bringing it home" where it belongs with the greatest sailors in the world.

I'm very happy to have you guys on this forum!

Americas Cup & Ferrari Festival in New Zealand

Hi guys - appreciate the best wishes. We will need it as Oracle is full of kiwis too! Watching those boats go is a bit like an F1 car - totally amazing and scary at the same time.
For anyone planning a visit to NZ in January we are holding a significant Ferrari Festival of Motor Racing : NZ Festival of Motor Racing
We have F1 cars and a full line up of historic cars. Cheers
