Here´s some of the feed back from yacht industry types who recently took the experience:
“Where in Europe, in one day in late November, can you get to drive over €1m worth of supercars, tops down, in 25+º sunshine? Some of the most spectacular and challenging roads you will ever find; And this is almost winter!!!. Come on, I´m still slapping myself to wake up. What a day was had by all.” GN
¨It´s hard to think how you can have more fun and excitement with supercars than we had. Amazing roads, cars and like-minded people came together for a brilliant day,¨ JS
¨Incredible – a one day full on gumball rally, and I do mean full on. About as much fun as possible with your clothes on,¨ DM
¨Not to miss, a really very good experience. The
cars are in perfect condition for performance driving, and the roads had good variety including hill climbs and fast sections,¨ JC
