We are looking forward to our 10th season competing in the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic.
We said goodbye to a couple of fabulous cars early in March as they were prepared to be shipped overseas. One of them was a very low mileage 328 we have looked after for 8 years and a 1 family owned Dino we have just spent the last year refurbishing.
This beautiful original Dino has just made a 2500 mile trip around Europe. As well as making the pilgrimage to Maranello and Modena where the car created quite a stir it also took in the sights of Reims and the heights of the famous Stelvio pass.
The Cotswold Ferrari owners area group called in on us on Saturday 8th of September. An impressive convoy had made the journey up to Derbyshire to spend a weekend enjoying the sights of the Peak district.
Jamie is running in The Volkswagen Cup Championship today at Brands Hatch as part of the DTM meeting.
This Ferrari 246 Dino was 1st Registered to H Gadsby on the 29/01/1974 and was previously owned by his daughter M Gadsby until our recent acquisition.
Continuing his great form this season, Jamie has won the last three Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic races making it 9 out of 10 races this year.
Due to the recent demand for Ferrari Tipos we are currently seeking to purchase good quality low mileage Ferrari's with full service history. Being located in the midlands gives us a good starting point to travel the length and breadth of the country to view quality Ferrari vehicles. We can collect Nationwide with our own transport.
The winter months are a great time to undertake Ferrari restoration projects which have recently included a Ferrari 246 Dino engine and gearbox rebuild. We are also converting a Ferrari 246 Dino engine to run on unleaded fuel. Both Ferrari cars are coming to the final stages of their ground up restorations.
The ride could not have gone any better with hardly any technical problems along the way. That is not to say the ride was easy. I hope you enjoy this short account from each day to share our adventure with you.
On May the 1st Ben Cartwright will be embarking on Challenge to cycle from Lands End to John o Groats in 8 days along with 4 other cyclists, all in aid of Matlock Mencap where Ben has been a volunteer for the last 7 years. A fellow volunteer has kindly offered his valued support by driving along side the cyclists with a variety of spares and supplies onboard.
We have just carried out a refurbishment program on this magnificent Ferrari 365 GTB/4. The Ferrari has been subject to a full Ferrari repaint, Ferrari interior re-trim and detailing to the engine bay. Our next project is on a Ferrari 275 GTS.
We are proud to have been involved with the restoration of this stunning Ferrari Dino 246 GT which won its class at the Ferrari Owners Club Concours on the 6th of July at Walton Hall.
The Ferrari 246 Dino we featured at the beginning of the year has now received a colour change and we are preparing the Ferrari Dino for this years Ferrari Concours at Walton Hall on the 6th of July.
