Ok, here's a few (more to follow)

As someone who loves 360 Challenge Stradale's and 430 Scuderia's, today was fantastic for me:













The Ferrari contingent was strong; In addition to the countless 360's and 430's there were two F40's, an F50 and an Enzo







Like Gibbo, I loved the 8C Alfa - even more stunning in the metal than the pics:





Some random personal favourites:























And finally; having left this morning with an immaculate car, the Sheps-mobile looked like this by the time I got home

It was a great morning.

I pondered that very question myself; I would guess that somewhere around the 20m mark for the cars on the track itself, with a further 10-15m for everything parked elsewhere.

Sheps - More pics please if you have them and keep your eyes off my Alfa.
That Alfa Red was the best Metallic Red I have ever seen it was beautiful colour.

2 Veyrons, the Enzo and the Zonda must be getting on for 3m alone.

We were all saying the same when we were there today - I think we can see how the credit crunch is kicking in hard for some people.

We talked to a Guy who had driven there in his DB9, his wife came in an SL55 and his Son had the hardship of bringing his Ferrari 360 down. Top bloke for bringing his Toys down to share with Jo Public.

Great morning Guys and good to meet you Sheps.

Pete, thanks for brekkers and navigating, the drive down was a spirited run if nothing else

It was good to see James running again, although he did get a rebuke from the Guy in the MX5 Great sounding soundtrack from the Vert.

Sheps, apologies, the colour red in the distance was far too tempting

Some pics, although Pete and sheps have covered it quite well.
I've always been a sucker for big Yank power + Maserati's, so no apologies:



















One for Chris (CD) & NFS






Maserati alert!









Cracking chassis!



Zonda CF Heaven



DB9 (with rusty hubs, not shown,it would be too mean!)



A selection of others





Wow!!













A couple for Helen & Porscha





Great plate



Few more:





Highlight of the day & more in keeping with my age

I will totally abstain from making any references to age, older chassis and bloated yank muscle cars Ian, but good pics. and pleased you found a couple of nice porkers. Least the weather was kind for you all, better than up here first thing.

Guess which Porsche would be the Porschamobile, if I could pick either?

Do I also hear someone calling the Mazda MX5, please don't do that unless it was a Mk. 2 or 3.

Looks a wonderful day wish I could have made it.

One last thing, I know that Zonda quite well, it also liked me but was a bit difficult to get in and out of ... what the hell, I'd still have one if I had the money

Just realised - the plate on that black Aston could have been made for me. Which reminds me, a rather nice Vantage 'throbbed' past me today in the opposite direction. Very nice.

In the 'paper' (the Sun) today were reports of a black Bugatti Veyron on french plates and a black Ferrari 599 busted for doing 130mph.

Presumably these were the same vehicles as seen at Goodwood having a bit of a play on the way home.

Just looked it up Sheps. They were the ones on Sunday so I guess it was on their cruise back home.

Probably a good job as you may have cruised back with the Veyron and Ferrari.
