    We had a total of 34 Ferrari’s on the field representing 27 distinct models from 1970 through to 2010. Our group brought a total of 47 cars that filled the space for the Italian classes to capacity! On top of all of that the weather was perfect! I can’t say I’ve ever seen anything like this in Calgary. You couldn’t have asked for more.

    Pics of the event can be found here.

    Yes, rain or shine. Right now the forecast is cool with a moderate chance of light rain. Yesterday the forecast was clear and cloudy in the mountains. You never know what the weather is really going to be.

    You would have thought rain would have kept everyone away. Not in Alberta. We don't fear precipitation here. A handful of hard core Ferrari owners still came out and we had a great drive. It was a memorable one for sure!! Thanks very much to Ferrari of Alberta for coming along with us and providing support to all the drivers.

    Looks like the weather is not cooperating with us this weekend. This drive requires a nice clear day so we are going to reschedule this one when better weather presents itself. Sorry guys.

    The Alberta Chapter of the FCA invites you to spend some quality time with Ryan and Damon Ockey in a unique evening presentation where they will reflect on their experiences in their first year of racing in the Ferrari Challenge. If you've ever wondered what goes on in a race weekend, or if you enjoy some great stories (and video) from inside the cockpit this event is for you!

    After a brief and highly entertaining talk, the evening will conclude with a walkaround of Ryan and Damon's Challenge cars.

    This event is open to everyone. Please forward the link to anyone who may be interested in attending. Proceeds from this event will go to the Cardel Crisis Housing Fund in support of the YWCA.

    Registration is now open via this link: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/999735235

    Hope to see you there!

    There is an amazing amount of interest from car clubs and track day clubs for our Ferrari F430 Challenge Car presentation at the Cardel Theatre on December 2nd at 7pm. We want to make this event as big as we can for Cardel's charity so we are now extending FCA member pricing to you if you are a member of a car club in Alberta.

    That's right, if you are a member of any automotive car club in Alberta you can purchase tickets at the member price! Your guests also qualify for the member price!

    The registration link to buy tickets is below. Proceeds to go support the Cardel Crisis Housing Fund in support of the YWCA!

    Bring your cameras! Pictures are welcome when we do a walk around of the Challenge cars!
