As part of the Rolex24 at Daytona festivities this weekend, on Saturday, the Ferrari Challenge will have one of their 2013 events out at the Daytona International Speedway. When this olelongrooffan was out at the Roar a couple weekends ago, we got to see a souped up SUV with the rear hatch open filming a bunch of these supercars as they raced around the track for some promo event. Well, my fellow Hoons, as this olelongrooffan will be out at the 24 for the entire weekend, the likelihood of me getting to see these cars on that track is damn good. However, on my way into schlep some trailers this morning, I did happen to catch a few Ferraris of the Canadian variety getting unloaded and prepped at a local shop.
In addition to the huge assed transporter, there were four, count em four, Ferrari 458’s freshly unloaded from that bright red truck. There were several Ferrari apparel wearing dudes around, including three swapping out tires and wheels on a multi colored car in one of the engine bays.
I’m not really sure the connection between Aristocrat Limo and this Canadian based group but I sure am glad I chose to drive across L.P.G.A. Boulevard on my way into the trailer joint this morning.
The inside of that race car trailer was lit up like Times Square this morning and those boys were moving that thing around in an attempt to get it out of the way of that car sales/service facility/limo rental facility.
A small glimpse of the one having the tire service performed is viewable just in front of this yellow and red Ferrari. I can’t wait to see these on the track on Saturday.
And lest my fellow Hoons believe these Ferraris are showroom fresh, this olelongrooffan would suggest you might want to think again. Apparently, in this series, all of the drivers “arrive and drive” these supercars at their track of choice and the cars themselves are maintained and transported by select Ferrari dealers. Wonder if this olelongrooffan could get a job detailing this beauties for these guys?
