On and in the water

The start of 2016 has seen lots and lots of rain in Sydney, much of it unfortunately falling on the weekend. Even though today’s Cars and Coffee event at Woolwich was under clear blue skies, the ground was particularly wet underfoot after storms the day before.

That didn’t deter members from lining their cars along the harbour foreshore for all to see.

Hopefully soon we’ll have a weekend that isn’t dominated by weather.

It was great to see so many Ferarris at the event inspite of the wet conditions. Thanks to everyone who attended.

Let’s get technical

The weather for the beginning of the year has been a little unkind to us, with the need to reschedule our traditional kick off event at Balmoral beach a few times. However, being the practical bunch that we are, we devised a solution for our next event. Have it in indoors!

Ferrari Maserati Sydney (FMS) hosted our first technical event for the year which focused on track driving skills and car control. FMS kindly cleared some space in their workshops for all attendees and the club organised the refreshments.

Everyone was then schooled by experienced racing driver Renato Loberto from MotoKinetic on how best to manage their cars during track events. This is especially relevant because many members will be attending the Ferarri Festival at the Bathurst 12 hour and taking their cars on track.

Apart from the great track information every one reported an excellent evening eating, drinking and catching up with fellow Club members.

And thanks to FMS, there were also plenty of other “distractions” on show for people to admire.

We take this opportunity to thank all who were involved in organising and supporting this event, especially FMS for the use of their venue and logistics on the night. Everyone had a great time and took away plenty of important information to increase their enjoyment of their Ferrari.

We look forward to see everyone at our next event coming soon.
