Just got back, fantastic day, burnt to bits, and bad back from unsucessfully reading number plates for evidence of Ferrari Life.

Thanks 'Barry' for your kind comments on my car - I found your note which was a really nice surprise.

The F40 reg'd B 4DAM was I'm sure the one that took me round this circuit on an FOC track day at least 10 years ago.

Looking forward to Racing Days !

Sorry to miss you. We actually headed off right after the parade laps.

Thanks for the fantastic pictures showing that the best view of a flight of F40s is from the cockpit of an F40. Last picture pure art!

Must be such an awesome moment to experience the sight and sound of 60 F40's together.

I read a short article about it yesterday, and they mention that the majority of F40's present were from the U.K.

There were 3 official FOC UK photographers at the F40 Parade and the following are links to their pics:

David Marsh of mbs photos was the one taking pics on track and from the helicopter. His link is Photography - Landscape Photography - Architectural Photography - Specialist Photography
He has uploaded around 82 photos of the day (although I know they took in excess of 1000!) and if you require an acrylic framed image as shown in the FOC tent just take a note of the image number and call David to order. Individual pics of every F40 in the parade were taken as it left the FOC area and they will look the same as image no. 10. To experience these images at their best you need to follow the on screen directions to view them in ‘Full Screen’ mode.

Simon Cooke is the Club photographer and many of his pics were taken of the parade from the gantry on the start line. Simon’s web site is: Photos from Simon Cooke and his pics can be found under F40 Parade Silverstone. If you are interested in any of his photos there is a contact form on the website or email Simon.

Adrian Brittlebank is another club member who loads his photos up on Flickr at:
Flickr: Adrian Brittlebank's Photostream If you are interested in any of Adrian’s photos then email him on [email protected]

I’m sure you’ll find some photos of your cars amongst these and make sure you look at the videos up now on YouTube, especially this one: 58 FERRARI F40 @ Silverstone - World record attempt, Sights, Sounds, Track Perade - YouTube

Just back home now from a trip that started out with the Silverstone Classic. Unfortunately no Ferrari with me on this occasion, but what a weekend it was in Silverstone.

The F40 parade lap was the icing on the cake. A magnificent sight to see so many F40s on track together. Will definitely be back next year for the 2013 event.

Took a stroll around the Ferrari OC area a couple of times Boxer to see if I could see any familiar cars or faces, I did think you might be around. Couldn't pick you out from the other 59 F40s on the parade lap though!

Next time!
