    We attended this event in April, 2017, since it dovetailed with the FCA Annual Experience in Daytona. I didn't think we would be back, but I stayed on their mailing list. Since 2020 was a complete bust for car events, I was chomping at the bit for something to attend. We are signed up for the full package and looking forward to it. We had a great time in 2017.

    We depart MA on April 6 and arrive on the 8th. Staying at the Bohemian Hotel in town. Driving down in our 2008 612 Scaglietti OTO. Are any other FChatters going to be there?

    I missed the 2019 event unfortunately and the McLaren F1 that showed up. Hope to make it this year.

    Rally is usually a little over 100 miles. Route changes every year and is lots of fun. Usually a rest-stop at the midpoint.

    As I recall after the rally there was a lunch at a restaurant in the town center.

    I received this info from the organizers -

    RALLY
    Sunday, April 11, 9:00am
    Driver and navigator meeting is at the Town Tavern in downtown Celebration at 9:00am Sunday morning. Please be prompt!
    Continental breakfast will be served staring at 8:30am. Your will be given Route Instructions and a clipboard. It is a good idea to make sure your car is full of fuel and you have an e-Pass with you. The rally route is approximately 120 miles and should take approximately 3.5 hours to complete.
    The cars will depart downtown Celebration under police escort at 10:00am. The rally will conclude at a surprise new location for the awards lunch.

    Paul,

    I'm signed up for the Concours event, will most likely drive down from north central FL early Sat AM. Would've loved to do the rally, but I have a pre-commitment on Sunday.

    PM me if you want to meet up on Saturday (anyone else, too). I'll be in the white on black 2013 458 Spider. Hope to see everyone!

    William

    William, sounds good. Now I know what your car looks like and you can see mine on post #1, let's look for each other, anyone else?

    Yes! Your picture is from when I dropped her off. My picture is when I picked her up last Saturday.

    Sadly Curtis left the dealership in the meantime. I saw you were working with him that day.

    Wow, I assume you mean he’s no longer at FOCF? Oh, shoot. I hoped they saved paperwork because I spent a few hours speccing out the F8 Spider. Time for a phone call to the GM.

    Funny we were there at the same time, at least I no longer fear for my life coming and going, like the last address.

    I'm not sure if any of you received the email from Ferrari of Central Florida or Ferrari of Tampa, but it looks like it gave away the "secret" destination of the rally.

    Thanks, it is looking like we’ll be there all day Saturday. Ferrari of Central Fl will be there with a bunch of cars, their new dealership is not far. I’ll give you a call on your six ten number.

    Wow, your car is gorgeous Paul, and you’re at a beautiful place! Did you guys drive all the way from Mass? FOCF is worth a visit if your schedule permits.

    I’ll ping you when we arrive, which will most likely be Sat AM.

    We left Tues and stayed in VA and then Ponte Vedra Weds night.

    I spent more than an hour cleaning all the bugs off and I'm still not done!

    Yes, bad news - just today I noticed the love bugs are out in full force. This week’s been very warm. They come out twice a year in FL and are the worst..

    I just finished washing my car but it’ll be covered again by the time I make the ride to Celebration. I’ll bring some bug juice remover in my little travel trunk.
