Ferrari Challenge : Infineon 2010

any one else going to the May 01-02 event?

There will be several of us there, more than likely sipping wine and cheese and 'stuff' in the stands at least one of the days: Thinking Sat.

I know Greg...ya' don't drink....

Yup: You there or not, I'm bringing....also stopping by Glorias for our quick free Champagne glasses too.

Hope Rob and Jody will be there as 'little' Brian from BC's shop, who is now at FerrParts. + few others.

last year was rainy, and before sold to Boardwalk I would get free passes to the eating area: Sad to see that part go.

Not sure exactly where we'll be, but look for a Burgundy 456 in the lot and a trail of wine corks to the grand stands.

I'll ring you up that day: We will be at Ferrars then to Infineon.

Look for a 456. We are trying to debate day, as either both or just one, but will be there: when you?

We might be modifying our stance too. Understanding is there will be NO historic races and that probably means no historic cars to view.

No 599s no FXXs and that means only roundi-rounds with 430s. Hmmm.

Other than seeing Brad Goldstone and other friends, this might be a bust for us....but since only 5 miles from home, why not....lousy way to pick an event, even if close.

We'll see what developes, but not excited about spending the money to see not much: FofSF 'used' to comp us. I don't know Boardwalk, and the last conversation I had, 'on another site' was a bit condescending, which immediately turned me off.

Might just stay in the back yard, BBQ and stuff.

I hear ya, its a bit disappointing that they seem to have really reduced down the value you get - For me and my wife its mainly a chance to spend some time together with the Ferrari (My other woman) which is worth the fee alone - however, if things do not improve I have to say this may be the last one I attend... I've been to every event held up there and each year it seems to get smaller, less well attended and with a lot fewer cars - I'd really like to see more investment from Ferrari into US owners, I think I'll contact them about it

Last year was rainy, cold and a bit off too. If not for our wine and others there, it would have been over. This year seems to be in the 70's which makes it nicer.

Guess they are beefing up the stops more in budding countries. I read this morning that China is almost overtaking all countries in luxury car market. Rolls feels it will overtake British local sales this year. Guess we could have an Infineon[dubai-ous]World center....linked to Africa USA: Flipper jumps a 599...that' I would like to see.

Like you say, every year it goes down just a bit more:

last year's historics: http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9961

last year's Ferrari Challenge: http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/sh...fineon+ferrari

Jury is still out, it'll depend on how enthusiastic we are...I understand your needs to satisfy both gals

but, we live here and, well, not sure...always looking for an excuse to drive far and away, which usually is Sacro-tomato

I can't make it due to prior family commitments.

You are right, Rik. I don't do alcohol. I get wicked head aches from anything alcoholic. So I stay away from the stuff.

I was designated driver in the 60's! Classmates laughed at me cause I did not drink but then they all wanted me to drive them home when the room stated to spin!!!

They spent all their $, got drunk, and I hit on all the girls who were tired of drunk idiots!!!

Hope it goes well, though, for all who attend.

absolutely no problem with me an not drinking.

as for the event: http://secure.ferrarichallenge.com/n...ceway-schedule

Nothing but 430s...love em, but want more I guess.

In defense of the venue: Would REALLY get my fill of 430s for awhile and that may give me 'some' idea of the model a bit better......afterall, back in the day, one would ONLY see one model: I've become spoiled
