Eleven Ferraris from all over Scotland and one from Northern England - not bad for the first meet.
A few members who didn't bring the cars - probably the weather put them off.
Most expensive lasagne I've ever had - how was the sandwich, Gavin?
I think you caught me at Kilmarnock just as the rain came on.

Greetings Marlin, it was an honour and a priviledge to meet you in the flesh!!! , being chatted up twice in the one night takes some beating!!!! "how was my sandwich ? " Bloody expensive ! My prices are going up tomorrow ! Had an eventful journey home, dropped my phone which wedged in at the pedals then burnt my crotch while trying to extricate it on the motorway !! must remember to take a co-pilot the next time ! Joking aside even though rushing after work for a 200 mile round trip, an enjoyable evening was had, the aberdonian 360 contacted me with sealant solution so am well chuffed, look forward to the next adventure !!! By the way i thought you were following me out ?? Thought you had stopped to chat.

I was watching the mirrors all the way - the 308 gt4 passed me just before Glasgow, I think it was you behind me when you turned off for the A46.
You were being chatted up by the American lady when I left.
Obviously the smoking crotch slowed you down

Looks like a decent turnout considering the geography of the Scottish membership. Are you in charge of the Scottish FOC now Marlin?

LOL, no just taking photos and writing articles for Ferrari News - finding out what the owners had for breakfast, etc

Yes it wasn't bad when you see how far Aberdeen and Dumfries are from Gleneagles!

I was thinking that, the A46 is the old Roman road the Fosseway, it runs from Lincoln to Gloucester or somewhere like that, it actually passes about 200 yards from my house in Leicestershire

Mmmm, an Air Traffic Controller with no sense of direction, that is very worrying. In future I will make sure that any flights I take don't go into Scottish airspace. With you in control, A flight from Edinburgh to Heathrow will either end up in Oslo or smack into the runway when you think it's at 30K feet

The tubi should sound great, you'll have to record it and post the audio file on here for us all to hear.
No I won't be buying another Ferrari for at least a year

If I'd kept her for a bit longer, I would have put a Tubi or a Larini system on, but the standard exhaust was still perfect so I couldn't see the point in spending the money.
Good luck with the video.

Thank God (insert god of choice here) that I'm not a controller - if I was I'd have one of those fancy Ferraris
