    I've had a bit of a dream job for the last few days. Chaperoning this around Italy for some promotion. It's in 2018 livery rather than the red and white 2016 one.




    The drive was nice, Mt. Blanc




    I had to set it up in Piazza Ferretto in Mestre, fitting the nose is a 2 man job. I had loads of Ferrari promotions people just standing around watching me including a few Ferrari big wigs, not one of these people offered to hold the nose whilst I bolt it in. It was also around 35 degrees and I was sweating like a bitch.



    The wind picked up and this sign fell on the nose cone. I shit myself but luckily there was no damage. Lots of arms waving in raised Italian which ended up with a guy just standing holding it in the wind




    The Ferrari big wigs.



    Local women were nice




    The car was only there for 2 hours then I had to pack it up and drive it to the dock in Venice so it could sit on a barge outside a casino.




    On the barge



    One of the film crews was from Formula One Management and the other were from Rai.

    Film crew one:


    Film crew two, the driver of this boat was supposed to take me back to the dock as soon as we have finished so I could catch my flight. Apparently he was anrgy he hadn't eaten so fucked off for lunch for 2 hours. Needless to say I missed my flight.:

    Arrived at the casino



    And finally set up at the on the second barge:

    I'm an avid F1 fan / follower where finances allow it.

    The Scuderia F16 is a thing of pure beauty - which I hate to say as a Lewis Hamilton Fan Boy.

    I only envy you and your job ever so fukkin much.

    Thanks for sharing

    At points of the trip I was laughing to myself that I'm actually getting paid to do this, fuck I'd do it for free, I loved every minute of it.

    I have to pick the car up again on on Monday so hopefully will get some more pics.

    Here's some more I missed:







    The 40k steering wheel that feels really flimsy.



    Apologies for the finger over the lense on this one.



    On the way back I'll stop off and get some pics of this that aren't behind a dirty windscreen.

    I was supposed to be bringing back the car to the UK but I got a call just after I made it through the Mont Blanc tunnel to take it to the Ferrari factory. I'd just travelled 300 miles from Venice and was told go back another 300 miles but I didn't care, a boyhood dream come true.









    I can't show many images of the cars I took photos of but here's a sneak peak at one of the garages (Corso Clienti) . There were lots of FXX K's, a 812 Superfast and all sorts of other Ferraris. I was like a kid in a sweet shop. Unfortunately I got there at 6pm, otherwise I would have been taken around the Fiorano Circuit.





    Also weirdly I was told I couldn't wear shorts anywhere in the Ferrari complex so had to put on some jeans.
