I've been busy painting my garage every night this week ready to house my new toy :D

I have a ferrari flag which measures 1.5m x 1m which I want to mount on the wall but I'm not sure the best way to hang it?

If I somehow attach the corners of it to the wall then its going to sag in the middle :(

Has anyone here any ideas or experience in hanging one of these on a wall? In the "garage" forum on here I noticed some people have flags mounted on their garage walls.

TIA

Justyn.

No flag hanging tips i'm afraid but will you be at the Ferrari festival this weekend at Donnington park?!

As luck would have it my wife has a guest visiting this weekend and has told me I'm welcome to "clear off out" in my new toy if I want to. I live in Derby so Donnington is a stone's throw away so I may well head over there for a look.

What exactly is going on, is it just racing or will there be stuff to do off the track?

Are there likely to be many road-going Ferraris there?

Do I need to be in the owners club (I'm not at the moment) or can I just turn up on the day?

There looks to be a great deal going on both on and off track- Maranello Challenge race, 360 Euro Challenge Race, Ferrari Owner's club displays and Track demonstrations of the new Enzo and a '99 F1 car. It used to be he

I'll be there both days, I mechanic on a 308 in the Maranello challenge so come and say hello if you go!! :D

Dirk,

that flag looks nice hanging like that, but for my garage I want it flat on the wall. I'll experiment and see how I can do it.

Dan, how will I recognise you at Donnington?

hmm, if you want it flat against the wall, then you must try to strecht it as hard as possible so that you don't see it "folding in"
i'm sorry i don't really know how to say it in english

Justyn: It would be stupid for me to say that "I'll be the one wearing the Ferrari shirt"- but I probably will be!!! I'll be around the Light metallic blue 308 which runs in the PMFC, wearing either a black Ferrari polo shirt or a Blue Ferrari owner's club sweatshirt (or if it's raining a Marlboro jacket)

Dirk: Yes it's John Swifts car! I have only just started to help him out this season, the car rarely needs much apart from swapping wheels but I just enjoy being around race Ferrari's all day :D I missed the Spa meeting due to work commitments but should be at most of the other rounds. Are you coming to the Festival this weekend?

Dan,

I tried to say hello to you at Donnington, each time we popped by your car at between about 12:00 and 13:30 there was no-one around.

We tried one last time about 13:45 and "Swifty" was there getting ready for his race at 14:38. We had a quick chat but he was busy getting changed so didn't want to hold him up.

Never mind, maybe we'll meet next time. Do you know when you are likely to be racing again or at Donnington again?

Justyn.
