Woody, are you talking about going on Sunday to the Ferrari racing days weekend at Silverstone or some other event? I will be at Silverstone on Sunday (as well as Saturday).
Gah... replied to this but the internet ate it. Grrr...

So, PistonHeads are fong a Sunday Service http://pistonheads.co.uk/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=65&t=1192819&mid=39609&nmt=RE:+PH+Sunday+Service:+16/9/2012

Basically, Sunday Service is 700 PH memebers and their cars, in a car park. And thats about it. This one if being done at Silverstone. Its usually hard to get a spot but I managed to get one on this. A nice touch with this one is you get two tickets to the Ferrari Racing Days so I'll have a nose around that too.

Fantastic day out - the parade around Silverstone track was truly memorable. Drove there with Enzo and met up with Frank. Didn't get a chance to meet Phil unfortunately - Enzo was about to introduce me but by that time it was time to get in your car for the parade lap!

Haven't had a chance to download the camera pics but a couple of shots I took on my phone of the parade below (with some forum members cars are in the foreground).

Woody, I'll be there tomorrow too so look out for me. You made my day by advising of the Pistonheads cars on show - should be another great day out. Petrolhead weekend overload for me this weekend :)

i thought after, how did we end up side by side on the track with 1100 cars there!! And parking next to each other - bizarre but great fun.

Have to say guys that was truly one of the best days ever. The record had to be truly smashed to pieces. Always good meeting forum members. Enzo always smiling and Frank your road trip stories awesome. What's the record for the number of Maseratis on track ?

Great day, really good to meet up with Dhanj and his wife, Phil and his family and Frank...
Just shy of 1000 cars in the parade, new record yet to be ratified, but most reports suggest 964 cars :D

There will be more around today Loz...yesterday was the qually and today the races for the ferrari racing series.
Have to say that the FXXs made the most fantastic noise I have ever heard on a track...and the fire spitting F40s were just awesome.
Will see if i can post a vid or 2 later :D

Yes Andy, they had the XX program private practice going on...about half a dozen 599 XXs and 3 or 4 FXXs...
The FXXs were by far the loudest, video is uploading as we speak, will post a link once it has finished processing.

Edit...Just seen in the programme that there were 16 599XXs and 4 FXXs there :D

Stunning motor cars Enzo......They had them all in one warehouse when I saw them so you can imagine the noise rebounding around the walls of the warehouse.
