Exotic car ride out - Zurich - Sunday 28th of June

If anyone is interested, a group of us (all English speaking) are planning an "exotic car ride-out" tomorrow Sunday 28th of June.

We meet at Mythenquai (opposite the SwissRe buildings) in Zurich at 10:30am.

See here for details:
http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/eur...thread-24.html

So far we have 7 confirmed, all Ferrari drivers (ranging from new to classic) with another 6 that are yet to confirm (including a Lotus Elise and more Ferraris).

So if you have an exotic car and would like to join, then you are most welcome.

Re: Exotic car ride out - Zurich - Sunday 28th of June

there could be breakdowns

If they started from Kusnacht ZH, they could do a 911 version. I was there today and I've never seen so many less-than-2-year-old 911s in one square mile

Too bad the '97 Land Cruiser has already left on summer hols - but it needs more than a burger in its tank
