    Thats an Enzo Ferrari.

    Ferrari were one of the only stands to limit numbers of people allowed on.

    The pleasure of the day was the eclectic nature of the event. Ferraris, Issetta bubble cars, Hillman Imps, Morris Minors, Detamaso Pantera's and all sorts rubbing shoulders. Exceptional.

    I've reached an age where it's quite strange to see cars that you used to drive and knew from days gone by being displayed as classics... Ooooer!.... Worrying!!

    Strangely I even came across a car that I used to own on a stand. Absolutely bizarre!!!!

    Although I'd settle for the f40 (better car IMHO)

    Apologies for the photo quality, not very good I'm afraid.

    The iPhone camera is great in good lighting conditions normally.

    It was a lovely car and oh so pretty, but wasn't as nice to drive as you'd hope.

    After you've had a "Snake Bite" burn off those exhausts a few times you get a little fed up with it.

    This is the "Test Hill" at Brooklands.

    I will try and get some pics up this evening as I have them spread between my camera and phone.

    You must have been well stoked when you saw your old car Nick I bet you were a bit giddy.

    Not really. It's like meeting an old friend that you spent a lot of time with years ago. A pleasure to see that they're well and doing fine. Puts a smile on your face, but then you both go your seperate ways.

    Given a choice of the AC or the Z8 I wouldn't swop.
