The world has been on hold, certainly the events industry has and the news we’ve all been waiting for has given us hope with the Ferrari Owners club countdown to their first event! News is coming out now of events around the country and The Ferrari Owners Club were swift off the mark after recent announcements of how we’re coming back to life in 2021.
There are just 99 days to go before the UK’s first-ever National Ferrari Owners’ Day, to be held at the historic Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire on Saturday 5th June 2021.
Careful planning is well underway for this COVID-secure outdoor event, organised by the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, but welcoming all Ferrari owners from across the UK to attend as the British motoring scene restarts.
The inaugural National Ferrari Owners’ Day is set to see the biggest gathering of ‘Tipos’ (Ferrari types) in the UK for many years. At the heart of the event will be a curated Ferrari Timeline, representing every possible model and era of production from Italy’s most illustrious marque. Ferrari visitors to the show can display their pride and joy in the Meguiars’ Pride of Ownership Trophy – not a concours, but an opportunity for owners who keep their car in excellent order to compete for the free-to-enter Meguiars’ Trophy.
Ferrari owners can take their pride and joys for a spin even, one thing I’d love to see and hear. By registering for the Superformance Runway Speed Experience, owners can take their cars down the 1200 metre runway! Sounds like that could be good fun!. If you have never driven your Ferrari at speed this is the perfect opportunity to try it in a controlled environment on a enclosed and spacious runway.
Adding more glamour to the event, Silverstone Auctions are holding a best of breed Sale of Ferraris in Hanger One, with lots expected from across the UK and Europe. Given Sywell’s distinguished aviation history, there’s even the opportunity to take to the skies – with a limited number of two-seat Spitfire and Mustang warbird flights available. As the event coincides with the anniversary of D-Day, we will be reflecting this with an air display by the ultimate fighters comprising Spitfire, Thunderbolt, Mustang and Messerschmitt amongst others.
“We hope that the first-ever National Ferrari Owners’ Day will prove to be a fitting restart to the British motoring scene, bringing together lovers of Italy’s most revered marque in this new, dynamic event,” said Christian Mineeff, Chairman of the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain. “Having moved the inaugural show from 2020 to 2021 has given us the opportunity to make it even bigger and better than originally planned. Given the current pandemic situation we’re taking additional steps to ensure visitors remain safe, with the expansive nature of the historic Sywell Aerodrome site making this easier.
“All the ingredients are there to make this a permanent fixture in our annual calendar – and a brilliant taster of a busy season we have planned for our members in 2021, including the first Ferrari Club Competitzione event at Croft just a few weeks later.”
Tickets are free for Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain members, and cost just £25 per car for non-members. The event is supported by Pirelli, Ferrari Financial Services, Charles Stanley Wealth Managers, Lockton, Meguiar’s and Superformance.

I’ll be getting my tickets and hope to see you there! Fingers crossed the rest of the season is going to get back to a new normal of mega motoring events across the UK!
