Ferraris in the Le 250 Tornano A Casa
Now we have a list of the Ferraris in this new Grand Tour of Europe, which took place in mid-July of this year. A Ferrari collector invited his friends to join him on a simple tour of France and Italy. What was not so simple was the requirement that they bring a 250 GT! His friends responded and below is the list of the guests’ cars.
There was a public portion at the beginning of the tour, as the cars were exhibited at the recent Le Mans Classic, where they were given several laps of the track as well. There was a smaller less-public end when the cars arrived in Maranello, but Maranello being a company town, the cars were all over, to the delight of those discerning enthusiasts who happened to be at the right place at the right time. The cars had several laps of the Fiorano circuit, and then were placed for a group picture, which we will publish in the next Cavallino.
In between, the cars toured mid and southern France, before making their way into Italy and down to Maranello. The only negative was the weather, which brought rain for much of the drive through France. The owners had a good time anyway, even though some of the open top cars elected to stay in the support trucks during the downpours. Any misery was washed away with the lunches and dinners, where the best of France and Italy was sampled.
As a whole, a great success, as the owners had a chance to drive some great machinery on some very challenging roads, and with good friends.
