Over 20 Ferrari cars lit up the slipways of Titanic Belfast May 11-12, 2012 as Ferrari Owners’ Clubs from Ireland and Scotland gathered in the city as part of a special Ferrari event in Ireland.
There, in front of the world’s largest Titanic attraction, were twenty-two Ferrari cars being photographed with the sculptured shape of the new Centre providing a spectacular backdrop.
As the numerous tourists enjoyed the colourful display, the Owners Clubs toured the Centre and then headed north to the Giant’s Causeway with a drive along the famed Antrim Coast Road, acknowledged as being one of the finest driving routes in Europe.
Speaking at the special get-together, Alan Tyndall from the Irish Ferrari Owners’ Club said: “We’re delighted to welcome our friends from Scotland and to see how many of our own club members have supported this event. I hope that this will be at least an annual exchange between the two Clubs. You only have to look at the expressions of joy and surprise as the Ferraris travel through our towns and villages to realise the impact that this parade of beautiful cars has made this weekend. It is great to be able to share our pleasure of owning these cars with the Irish public.”
Mike Shakespeare, Coordinator of the Scotland Owners’ Club added “We’re delighted to have been invited to Belfast to see the sights of the city, and it was fantastic to drive along the coast to see all the world-famous sites that the country has to offer. We’re looking forward to the next event where we have invited our Irish friends across to Scotland in their own Ferrari convoy. I’d like to thank Charles Hurst for their invaluable input in hosting this event.”
Charles Hurst’s Kevin Rogan commented: “We’ve had a great turnout for the event and it’s been a real privilege to host both clubs at Titanic Belfast. We also enjoyed a fantastic drive around the coast – this is what being part of the Ferrari World is all about!”
