The Ferrari Days usually comes together with an F1 race, but i rather see real Ferrari's an entire day then 2 hours on the TV.
Besides they always announce the progress of the race in 3 languages.

Aha the Italian Days @ Zandvoort.
I'm planning of going there to this year for the first time.
Wanting to go for 3 years now.

So FerRory, i'm guessing that you are from Holland :D

how were the events

So how were all the events that everyone attended?
FerrRory,
Welcome to the forum its always great to see new members and this particular site seems to be drawing a very diverse crowd. I think this site now represents 10 different countries from around the world. Let us know how the F1 race went. I've only seen CART live and I know that TV does the sound and experience no justice.

Andrew, all those events are this weekend.
and the F1 race FerRory is talking about is the Catalunya Grand Prix in Spain. He is going to watch it on TV, just like you probably.
Can you see the F1 races on TV in the states??

f1 in the states

You can see all the F1 races in the states on the channel speedvision but I do not get that channel. I think ABC shows a number of the events so I'll watch those when I can. The first race they are covering will by May 24th.

second 360

The 360 with the yellow and black is awesome looking. Can't wait to see your pics of the 575MM. How did you like the digital camera? I love them because you don't have to worry about film anymore, and you can take 100s of pics. Delete the bad ones right after you take them. 10 rolls of film! You almost took 500 pictures. Can't wait to see some more.

Okay, day 2 at Spa is over. It rained practically all day.
But it was worth it :wink: :D
I shot 189 digital and 6 and half rolles.
I love that black and yellow challenge, it's one of my fav, shot it a lot.

I like digital, but it's not really good for on the track, that's why i still use rolles. Actually i bought the reflex-camera a couple of months ago, this was the first time that i used it on the track, i hope that they are good.
i'm gonna try and bring them in tomorrow.

I already posted some pics of the 575 MM, I think that i have about 30 pics ore so :D

here are some more to drool on
