The Austin Ford vs Ferrari weekend details are starting to come out. This will include our friend Aaron Shelby:
The gathering of Ferrari and Shelby clubs from across Texas for the purpose of celebrating one of the most memorable moments in racing history. Shelby and Ferrari owners will be invited to participate in a prestigious weekend of driving events, social gatherings, and of course, viewing the much anticipated film, "Ford vs Ferrari".
15 November - Arrive to Austin, TX, check-in, cocktail icebreaker in the evening
16 November AM - morning hill country drive to lunch, return to hotel, massage, nap
16 November PM - cocktail reception, dinner and movie
17 November - brunch, depart for home
The Sonesta Bee Cave Austin Hotel has guaranteed a rate of $170/night. It's in the heart of The Galleria (shopping/dining). We will have reserved underground parking with 24 hour security.
Rally/Hill Country drive - this would be a joint drive with both clubs hitting the backroads together to a lunch stop and back maybe even a distillery or winery to take something home.
The Moviehouse and Eatery has blocked 2 theaters for a total of 176 seats. All seats are leather recliners and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. The food is very good; you order, eat and pay at your seat. They have a full bar and we'll have a cocktail reception prior to the movie. They will reserve parking for us and we'll hire security for the movie.
I got the call as well. Would have gone, but (alas) had a work commitment. So, Saturday IMAX showing it is!So the Greenwich Concours is hosting a premiere party tonight, I RSVP'd and will attend with my wife. Around noon today, the head of the Concours called me, and asked if I'd like to take my GT to the theater and park out front. That would mean taking the car down off the lift, driving it 5 miles in freezing temperature, and leaving it outside the theater, on the street unattended, while I watch the movie. I thanked her, but declined. How could I enjoy the movie, if the car was out on the street, unattended for 2 hours?
