Monday drives are popular with 12 Ferraris on this run. This included two very new 458 Speciales, two 458, 430 Scuderia, three 308, 355, 360, 575 and California.
The past week in Sydney had experienced some of the worst storms of the century at the start of the week, followed by the worst hail on the Saturday. So Monday turned out to be the only completely sunny day for the last week.
Our trip started at the historic centre of Windsor with breakfast and coffee.
We departed to Mt Victoria via the Old Bells Line of Road and experienced an element of excitement when we passed many old open wheeler Bentleys going the opposite directly, giving a flashback to the previous years.
Stopping at Mt Victoria we conducted a briefing about what to expect on the road to Tarana: dips, crests, and blind corners.
Our drive to Tarana was thoroughly enjoyable. Virtually no traffic.
We stopped at the Tarana pub for a drink (coffee), then headed onto Oberon.
At Oberon we enjoyed coffee at a shop in the main street, where the locals enjoyed our cars and told us to come back real soon because Oberon likes exotic cars and historic cars.
Next destination was Little Hartley, and again there was virtually no traffic on route. From there we connected with the Great Western Hwy and then down to the recently renovated Hydro Majestic Hotel.
We all enjoyed a wonderful lunch in The Boiler Cafe where we stayed for nearly 2 hours.
From there everyone headed home in different directions. Most were home by 5pm after a day of a lot of driving, socialising and experiencing the beauty of the Blue Mountains.
It was an outstanding day for driving on these wonderful country roads.
