Fellow car tragics,

The above is on this Sunday. Our theme this year is Zagato cars and we hope to have 13 or so old and newish Italian Zagato cars in attendance. We are also including a selected number (4 or 5 each) of excellent examples of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maseratis. (All older cars, although a low KM, one owner 360 CS will be there and my 550).

(The Countach I organised has had to pull out as the driver broke his hand so if you have a Countach or a Diablo and can come along (in by 8:30am, out after 2:30pm), please PM me).

Come along and bring the kids as there will be lots of food and kids stuff. 9:30 to 2:30pm.

On the Saturday night we have our Spettacolo dinner with guest speakers Kevin Bartlett and Alfredo Costanzo.

Keep fingers crossed for a good weather day.

Best Regards

I always loved those Alfas. They have the meanest front of any car.

The Aventador screams exotic fantasy in that colour scheme.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

I'm a big fan of the SZ, even though the few I have witnessed on track have been very slow.

I drove a few SZ's on Mugello circuit when I did the Ferrari driving course in 1994. They were the training cars we used before being let loose in 348's and 512 TR's.
I recall them being pretty unimpressive.

One of those 4 is my car. The first one brought into Australia in late 2009. They are not especially powerful; 210 hp, allegedly, from the wonderful V6. It is the same engine as from the 75 but with reprofiled cams and few other mods. The suspension was designed by the guy who did the Lancia Stratos suspension work; rose jointed etc.

I drove mine to Auto Italia and back this year, via the back way and through the twisty bits; it is like a go cart.
Very precise steering and handling.

The car polarises people, they either love it or hate it. I am in the former camp, obviously.

The body is made from a plastic injection material called Moldar. They should have just made it from steel. Moldar could be even heavier! Lifting the bonnet evidences this opinion.
