To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the last production year of the 250 series in 1964, namely the 250 GT Lusso, Brandon Wang organised a tour for friends with models in the 250 production range, which he named "Ferrari Le 250 Tornado a Casa". The purpose of the event was to have a leisure touring rally, taking in sights, culture, excellent accommodation in luxury hotels, together with fine food and wine to satisfy the inner needs, driving the cars in the mannier to which they were accustomed.

It was perfection from the start - from prototype to production with only a few minor changes.
The Ferrari 250 GT/L Lusso was a beauty born from birth, with no growing pains or adolescent hesitation.
Includes a closer look at one perfect example, s/n 4415 GT.

The streets of the quaint and picturesque village of Carmel were lined with glamorous and exciting cars again this year on the Tuesday, the 12th, and the attendees were very grateful for this chance to see some truly wonderful cars in such a charming setting, and this year under beautiful skies.
56 Feature The Quail - a Motorsports Gathering

The Quail - a Motorsports Gathering has become "the" fashionable event of the Monterey Week, and that's not a negative, since the organizers want an event that reflects their brand - the posh and known-for-service Peninsula Hotels around the world.
This they have achieved by having a restricted number of quality cars, sponsors and attendees, all on the grounds of the very pleasant Quail Lodge and Resort.
58 Feature Concorso Italiano

Its a brilliant move, Concorso Italiano moved this year from Fridays to Saturday, relieving a multi-year conflict with the Quail event. This freed up endless traffic jams but also freed up endless enthusiasts who now could take in both shows for a whole day, instead of having to split the experience and dash from one to the other like mad people.
60 Feature Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

All of this Monterey madness began with the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance over 60 years ago, and it was still the dominant force of the week this year, bar none. It was huge, it had more of everything, it had the best cars from all over the world, and it was successful - it was a "happening".
The quality of the classic cars was outstanding, with many "99+" cars competing head to head for only 1-2-3 in the various classes, and some honorary awards.
63 Feature Monterey Motorsports Reunion & Sundry

The Ferrari field was small again at Laguna Seca, and as before, it was first and foremost a generational change, as more and younger spectators want to see what they watched growing up, and in this case here at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, that means USRRC cars, IMSA GT cars and GTU/GTO cars, Formula Atlantic cars, Trans-Am cars, FIA Champ and GTP cars, and Stock Cars.
65 Feature The Monterey Auctions - all the results

Thirty-nine Ferraris sold for a total (with commissions) of $205,922,500 in the six auctions at Monterey in August. And that's just the Ferraris that sold on hammer bids of a million dollars or more.
That's more million dollar Ferraris than the whole Ferrari sale in 2009.

Ferraris show their age at Le Mans Classic 2014

As all passionate race car fans know, the Le Mans Classic is a revival of the history of the sacred 24 Hours of Le Mans, organized by Peter Auto in partnership with the A.C.O.
For this seventh edition, the weather was capricious, with sunny and hot tests day, then followed by two race days under a changing sky, cloudy and rain, which did not facilitate the task for the pilots who came to offer a spectacle for the 110,000 spectators at the track.

A beautiful monoposto destined to be forgotten, however. Its crime? It has not found a way to make the most of the complex new rules governing Formule One in 2014. It has improved greatly through the year, going from "also ran" to "contender" but is still just a bit short.

The Ferrari market is definitively strong, with continued sales strength and no end in sight. Everyone held their breath at the Monterey auctions, waiting to see if the end had truly come, as it must at some point. But the end didn't come; rather, nearly all the Ferraris met their reserves, many did better than expected, some were over the moon, and a few were on another planet.
