Trainspotters are a unique English subculture of enthusiasts, who wander out in the moors, in rain, sleet and snow, recording the serial numbers on the sides of passing locomotives, freigh cars and passenger cars. These numbers are dutifully entered into logbooks and put into databases so that the numbers, locations and travels of virtually every train in England can be carefully plotted and tracked. The Ferrari world has a similar tiny subculture of only a few dozen people worldwide, who record race results and ownership histories of their favorite model Ferrari.

Although the F333 SP is considered past its prime, and although no radical updates are planned by either the factory or the sub-contractor Michelotto, and although the quality of supplied spare parts continues to be a problem, the cars are still being raced and are doing surprisingly well.
