On the 6th of April, unusually was not a race circuit, but the town centre of Horsham.
Sussex Area Ferrari Owners Club organiser John Welland arranged a 100 strong group of Ferraris
filling the pedestrian area with all models, colours and ages of Ferrari.
The older cars were displayed in the town square which was renamed the Piazza Italia for the
day. Along with my 250TR, there was a 365 Daytona, 250 Lusso, 365GTC4, 330GT, 330 GTC and a couple
of 512 Berlinetta Boxers, eight cars in total.
The more modern Ferraris lined the streets leading up to the Piazza.
Having spoken to the owner of the 512 Berlinetta Boxer I later in the day I realised
it was the car I once owned, and was the car I had sold to buy XCH 555. Visit www.ferrari512BB.com
From the photograph above you can see what superb weather we had.
The photo was taken during a lull in the throng, most of the time it was difficult to get a
clear shot of the car for people crowding round. It was great to see so many people of all ages.
What a fantastic time we had, it was a real change to have time to talk with the admirers of
the TR and not to have the intense hustle and bustle and urgency of a race day.
We must not forget the reason why we were all there.
It was in aid of The Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice.
