the details should be on the FOC website. I know that it is on July 5/6th, but I can't go because I'm going to the Grand Prix at Silverstone. Very bad planning on behalf of the FOC

It is at Walton Hall. The same venue as two year's ago. If you go I recommend taking your own picnic and avoiding the rude and unhelpful hotel staff.

It was quite a nice venue two years ago despite the goose poo all over the parking area. We struggled to find a clean area for our picnic.

The timing on the event is just plain silly. I am sure turnout will be way down due to the Silverstone F1. They should have postponed it until September.

Thanks for the info guys. I agree with the stupid timing of the event and think they should change it. I enjoyed the event at Broughton Castle last year and think it a better time of year especially as more people will be back off their hols etc. I shall be going to the Concours and then put up with watching highlights of the GP later. I would love to meet up with some of you guys this year and put faces to names - scary as that may be - hehe.

I know Andalucia is too far from UK, but if anybody is interested in coming, he will be welcome, sure. At the moment there are more than 50 cars!

I write you the resume of the program. I am sorry for my bad english.

By other way, I will go to Huelva with Ferrari Owner´s Club Andalucia next 25th May for a new circuit official Opening. Huelva is near Portugal (I do not know what part of Portugal you live...) but if you wish you are welcome to come with us. You are our guest totally invited.

I hope to see you soon.

Best wishes,
