Our first track evening for 2016 commenced under a blazing Sydney sun with the cars lining up for scrutineering and the drivers beating a hasty retreat to the relative cool of the briefing room nearby.
With the briefing room soon full to overflowing drivers had their compulsory briefing, then saddled up their mounts and headed for the track proper.
As usual, the drivers are broken up into two groups and then continue to alternate 20 minute sessions out on Sydney Motorsport park.
A major difference with this event was the ability for drivers to bring along passengers during certain session and it was pretty hard to find a car that wasn’t a dual occupancy during the dedicated passenger sessions.
The star of the day was undoubtedly the new 488 GTB which, thanks to Ferrari Maserati Sydney, was also available to select members to test drive on the track.Many favours are still to be collected from those who managed to wangle a test drive.
The evening continued with sessions into the night under the blaze of full headlights. For those not prepared to make their brakes glow bright red at the end of straight for all to see, there was the fantastic food and coffee to take advantage of, not to mention the fun of sharing the event together with others there driving or just watching. It was great to see so many people turning out to share their passion for the prancing horse.
At the end of the night everyone went home happy and vowing to return again to let the horses run free as the sun sets across Sydney Motorsport Park. Thanks to everyone who made the night such a success. The seamless execution of the event is a testament to all involved.
See you all again at our next track event.
