'Race cars are neither beautiful or ugly. They become beautiful when they win.' Enzo Ferrari
The exhibition celebrated 70 years of Ferrari, one of the most iconic car makers and provided behind-the-scenes access to race cars, memorabilia, hand drawn sketches, archive pictures and the very first Ferrari.
The story of Ferrari was supported by films and interviews and some of the most significant Ferraris built through the years were on display.
I could only spend an hour at the exhibition, but I'm glad I made the time.

In short, the 'Classic Rumble' brought the two restoration experts, and TV personalties, Ant Anstead and Mike Brewer head-to-head in a competition to restore, or build, a car that will be auctioned through Silverstone Auctions at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show in November at the NEC.
I had the pleasure of spending an hour or so with Ant's car a couple of days ago shooting his PR shots for him.
Clearly, I'm hoping that the sale of both cars at the auction raises a huge amount of money for both of the charities - I obviously hope Ant triumphs in the 'Classic Rumble'!
