Silverstone, 24 August 2000

Glorious sunshine and clear blue skies provided perfect weather for DK Engineering, the British Ferrari restoration specialists, and Kinnerton Confectionery's joint test day for their clients at the Silverstone circuit on 24 August. The event gave them the opportunity to try their own cars on the track, and also the chance to be driven round by the maestro Sir Stirling Moss in the 250 GT SWB berlinetta, chassis number 2735GT, of Kinnerton principal, Clive Beecham, with which he won the 1961 Tourist Trophy race at Goodwood. Associates of the two company's also brought a selection of Ferraris and other cars in which guests could also have rides, whilst Aston Martin provided a DB7 Volante for arch historic racer Willie Green to give them the open air experience of the British marque.

Fortunately the day passed with nothing more than a couple of punctures, and a couple of trips into the "kitty litter", with ego being the only thing to suffer any damage. The ingredients of fine weather, fine cars and a splendid lunch laid on in the BRDC suite, followed by an impromptu question and answer session with Sir Stirling Moss, made for a most enjoyable day, which from the smiles on the faces of those present was a great success.

What a birthday present - a spin with Stirling Moss
For one of D.K.'s young mechanics, Adam, his 21st birthday ride with Sir Stirling Moss provided more than the expected excitement, as the left rear tyre blew midway through a bend sending them into a lurid spin, fortunately without making contact with anything solid. A birthday treat that he won't forget in hurry, and a story that should be good for a few pints at the pub for some time to come.

The choice of rides on offer included the 500 TRC, 0682MDTR, of David Cottingham, a second 250 GT SWB berlinetta, 3367GT, of Peter Sugden, a 250 GT Lusso, a 250 GTO replica built on chassis number 5059GT, 275 GTBs, a 288 GTO, 456 GT, 550 Maranello, to no less than five F40s. The most exotic Ferrari in attendance remained on static display, this being the 375 MM Pinin Farina berlinetta, chassis number 0320AM, of Sir Anthony Bamford. However, its presence was a welcome addition to the ranks, and it proved quite an attraction, even to those who knew little about the earlier examples of Ferrari's output.
