    Phill [ the Horn ] is I think.
    We went on the 70th Colchester parade and he claimed he did not rev his engine or blast his horn much, so I made this for a laugh.
    [ it was worth 6 million by the way ]!
    And a little lad wanted his dad to stick a Ferrari badge on their car at 6 mins in.

    If that's Phil Brigstock then I know he was interested as of 16th May but don't know if he is definite.

    I am not sure of his last name Francis, but I don't think its Brigstock, Phill in the video is from Cambridge.

    Thought you might like to see my itinerary :-)

    June 21 Fastcraft Portsmouth Cherbourg then drive to La Chartre sur le
    Loir
    June 22 short drive to Chinon, visiting some friends.
    June 23 Rally around Chinon area - great Gala dinner in evening - did the
    same thing last year.
    June 24 Demo runs (spirited!) around Chinon
    June 25 Drive to Macon
    June 26 Drive to sis in law who lives in mountains near Visp, Switzerland. Visit Ferrari de
    aler Garage Zenith in Lausanne.
    June 27 Fun driving day- Susten, Grimsel, and Furka passes
    June 28 Drive to Maranello
    June 29 Collect son from Bologna airport then lunch with all the other
    Dino owners at the Modena Museo, don't know how many but I think we are
    close on 200 cars for the main event, as far as I know 15 from UK. Dinner
    at Muzzarelli Olga at Serramazzon in the hills. It was recommended to me
    by a local on Fchat. Tried to eat there last Sept but hadn't booked!
    Apparently Enzo ate there a lot. Menu looked good
    June 30 Registration outside Museo Maranello at 08.00. 10.00 into Fiorano
    track. No doubt lots of talking about cars then a few laps (probably
    slow but I hope not) of the circuit then drive into the factory. Factory tour and lunch
    in staff canteen - not sure which order, then official photos under the
    old gate as we leave. We are staying in the Planet which although fairly budget I know well from
    last year and is fine for me though slightly worried about the tight underground car
    park but Im sure will be OK
    July 1 Drop son off at Bologna airport. drive to Stresa on Lago Maggiore to pick up wife
    who will get train from Visp (where she is staying with her sis for 2
    weeks. Likes going in the GT4 but hates hotel hopping) then over a private toll road with fantastic views to Hotel
    Giardinetto at Pattenasco on Lago d'Orta for a bit of relaxation.
    July 3 Drive to Vispterminen where wife will stay another week.
    July 4 Drive to Sancerre
    July 5 Drive to Le Mans where I have an Airbnb with a garage, 15 mins
    walk or two tram stops from the circuit although the lady owner says she
    is a car nut and will drive me there.
    July 6 - 8 Classic Le Mans and just having fun.
    July 9 Drive to Cherbourg for late afternoon fastcraft home
