Gallaria Ferrari

We went on a bit a cross Europe drive which took us past Marinello which is Ferrari home turf. Took a few hours out to visit Gallaria Ferrari (Lambo, Alfa and Ducati were on holiday)

Lots and lots of F1 stuff and their main cars from the 70’s on wards. No really old stuff unfortunately.

Maybe next year we’ll take the Sportster!

One of many F1 engines to drool over:

The only hints of the old cars:

A fuel filler

250 GT

An F430, one of the car that makes on to list of ones I’d like to own!

This is the oldest car I could find a 125 8 from 1947

Various prototype cars

Even the toilets are filled with engines here:

More F1 engines!

Enzo with engine:

Next more important questions, where do I get one of these and will it fit in the Sportster

50 Years IBM Hursley

50 year HursleyBig thank you to Paul "Millie Marlin" Carey for inviting us to the 50th Anniversary of IBM Hursley.

Part of the day was a car show from the member of the Hursley Motor Club, they invite Marlin Owners Club member to join their show. We went along with our Sportster and the BMW 840Ci.

There were 6 Marlins there from the Marlin Owners Club as well as a wide variety of cars from classics to much newer cars each and everyone was a really nice car.

It was a great day out with all sorts going on and a Spitfire fly over / display:

Some photos from the weekend

A few pictures from the weekend between filming:

 

Unfortunately after this we had a wish bone fail which meant joining the RAC and getting the car home on a flat bed, Marlin will send me all new replacement bits but as they are between workshop moves I won’t get any parts until next year now. Never mind, gives us time to install the windscreen and maybe do some engine work! 🙂
