308 door flew open while driving!

I was driving a 308 GTS this weekend up the coast on California 1 (a highly recommened drive by the way) when the door suddenly swung open. Scared the hell out of me and I was just happy to be behind a slow Jeep at the time otherwise I could have lost the door completely!

Wondering if anyone has ever heard of or had this happen to them. I drove over 200 miles without a problem. Stopped over night, drove another 60 or so, stopped for some gas then it happened after that. Would you guess it wasn't fully latched?

It has never happened to me but on all Ferraris you need to give the door a good pull to get it to close properly. I always lock the doors when underway as a safeguard. At least in the ones I have owned, you can't lock the doors unless they are closed properly.
