Ferrari 70th Anniversary Festival

For the 70th anniversary of ‘Ferrari’ and the 50th anniversary of the Ferrari Owner’s Club, the Knockhill Racing Circuit held a festival for the brand with Ferrari’s from various decades being put on display with others being taken around the track by their owners plus Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic Series qualifying on the track on what was a rather dull and wet Saturday.

Below we have the Ferrari F50, La Ferrari and Enzo parked next to each other each gathering some of the crowds;

Due to the weather there I didn’t get many picture of the Ferrari’s out on the track but here are some of the attempts I made;

As well as photography with some of the cars I also filmed some of the cars round the track including over 50 Ferrari’s doing a parade lap round the track:

Good Views are not too far away…

Rather than a 90 minute or so drive to the Scottish Highlands this one roughly only took 20 minutes to the Campsie Fells at Lennoxtown before some “hill walking”. ┬áSo after a 20 minute climb from the car park on one of the best days of the year for weather I reached what a the ‘summit’ marked out by a pile of stone.

At the top there were good views all around looking into the Campsie Fells, Cumbernauld and Glasgow.

For the picture I took I went down another part of the hill to get a better position to avoid having lots of hills in the one shot.

Below we have a view looking over Lennoxtown with the city of Glasgow in the background:

And the looking towards the east towards Cumbernauld with Lennoxtown in the foreground again with the moon also in the sky:

These views were better than what I initially expected, after all I thought it was only a short 5 minute climb to a good view point but I didn’t quite get that one right which also meant I was quite expecting the size of the drop in which these pictures emphasize.
