Kettering, 08 August, 2021
The concours field was rather smaller than at previous editions, due in no small part to the event only having
a six week lead-in time due to uncertainty over pandemic restrictions. There were also the vagaries of the
British weather to contend with, as it was a mixture of sunshine and showers through the course of the day.
Fortunately the sun was shining for the prize giving presentations in the afternoon! Despite the inclement
weather, a large number of owners brought their Ferraris out for a drive to fill the display area, whilst there
was an example of the recently announced 296 GTB also on display in the orangery courtesy of Ferrari
North Europe. There was a display of supercars, spanning F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari, accompanied by
the first Ferrari hybrid model, the SF90 Stradale. Classic models were thin on the ground, but augmenting
this lack on the show field, DK Engineering provided a great display comprising of a trio of 250 GT SWB
Berlinettas in red, blue and green, whilst Bob Houghton Ltd had a 275 GTB “Short Nose” competition
example in attendance.
