    If you came along last year, you know the form. If not, then this is something for Ferrari owners in the South West who enjoy a convivial chat with other Ferrari owners over breakfast. It is a regular event, but an informal one: turn up if you feel like it on the day, no prior commitment required.

    It is an opportunity to take your Ferrari – any model, any age - out for a drive early on a Sunday morning when there is not so much traffic around, meet up with other Ferrari owners and have a chat over breakfast or a cup of coffee, pick up the Sunday papers, and get home in time for lunch.

    So please tell all your Ferrari-owning friends in the South West and encourage them to come along some time - this is not a Ferrari Owners’ Club event, so any Ferrari owner is welcome, FOC member or not.

    Please note: due to changes in Haynes’ events diary, this will no longer be on the second Sunday of the month, but the last one instead, except for the first meeting, which will be a week ahead of schedule so as not to conflict with the Goodwood Members’ Meeting.

    The dates are:

    Sunday 22nd. March
    Sunday 26th. April
    Sunday 31st. May
    Sunday 28th. June
    Sunday 26th. July
    Sunday 30th. August
    Sunday 27th. September
    Sunday 25th. October​

    Time: 9.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. - the cafe is open for hot drinks from 9.00, food from 9.30, and they make a mean breakfast!

    Venue: Haynes International Motor Museum Easy to find, large car park and excellent café, as well as a great car museum. There is no obligation to pay up for entry to the museum in order to use the café, but if you have never visited it before, it really is very much worth a look and excellent value for money.

    Location: Post code / Google maps - BA22 7LH

    Please note: I do not have a mailing list, so I am reliant on others passing this flyer on – please help by sending this flyer to anyone you know who might be interested. Thankyou. Nor can I send reminders, or answer queries about who is coming each month: the best way to do this is via the Club Scuderia forum, or this forum – both are free to join.

    That's why the first date is not until towards the end of March, when hopefully the weather will have improved and the roads will be free of salt.

    I would say May/June onwards as the weather is still poor in March/April in general......

    That's fine - you come when you want, others may think differently. And the weather can spring some strange surprises, good and bad (as it happens, I have had both my Ferraris out already this year). The whole idea behind this is that it is entirely informal, no commitment.

    Sounds like a plan Sir, would be nice to get both out and about together this year.
    I mailed Emblem yesterday regarding the annual, belts and MOT that I'm due shortly. Mentioned your name, I hope that was OK

    Oh, and I too have already had mine out and about this year, as have you I know Tony!

    Hi Derek. No problem regarding Emblem, I think they are good guys down there.

    I’ll drop you a line when I’m planning to do a Haynes Sunday and see if you can make it.

    The car is waiting for a replacement alarm unit but because Italy is on lockdown who knows when it will get here!

    sorry to hear that John; and hope you have a quick recovery.

    I certainly intend to go, weather dependant. I get the 348 back next week after a month tucked up warm and dry in DL being serviced so have withdrawal symptoms!!!

    Thankyou, Adrian. I am hoping to be fit to go to Goodwood the following weekend (assuming it does not get cancelled).

    I fear this would count as a non-essential journey.:(

    So, whilst we haven’t been locked down, yet, I’m going to take the opportunity for a little run out this Sunday as it might be the last opportunity For a bit (other than delivering food to the in-laws; which will be done in the Ferrari!)

    The museum says it’s still open; so with some sensible precautions...I’ll probably be Billy no mates!!!!

    Anybody else up for some “essential” mental health wellbeing”?

    Any thoughts as to a venue? Haynes is closed until October, I believe.
