What a day!

I received a call early this morning with the news that I have VIP passes to a Ferrari event held at the Homestead racetrack in Miami. Me and a friend hop in my car an make the trek down there, the whole way down I am cursing the drive because no one in Miami can drive. We get there and start walking through the pits and what a sight. First of all, there are 8 of the 29 FXX's in the world and then there are at least 8 Ferrari F1 cars. I am a died in the wool car fan so I was in heaven. When they started up and ran those F1 cars that was magified 10x. Then later in the day they ran the FXX's, all I can say to that sight is WOW!. I don' t know if I will ever see anything car related like that again. I had to share it with other car people who will appreciate it. Wife sure doesn't. I am going to attach some pics also.

Splendid stuff Keith.

I'm sure the FXX owners would prefer to remain annonymous.

BTW, there's a great article in this month's EVO magazine about the FXX.
