Ferrari 250 TR - Swadlincote Festival of transport.
I wasnt quite sure what to expect at the Swadlicote Festival of
Transport, although I had heared great report from lots of people who had been last
I was not disapointed. I arrived about 09:30 having been told be there early 'cause it
will be very busy not only with vehicles on didsplay but also as the day goes on there will be
a lot of people.
They were not wrong, cars, trucks and bikes, were already in place with a steady stream of the
above continuing to pour in.
There was so much to see and do, even a display of brids of pray and very large
snakes which you could have your photo taken with.
Fortunatley these two were kept a good distance apart.
A snap shot of the admires of the TR.
I understand this is only the second time the SFoT has been held, with the number
of vehicles on display and the enormous visitors you would think it had been going for many
There was a steady stream of both sexes and all ages admiring the TR,
many of whom I had the opportunity to talk with.
Everyone has their own storey to tell, including the young man who had his bedroom
walls covered with photographs of Ferraris.
Well, imagine my surprise when I was informed I'd been voted best Car in
I now have lovey trophy and certificate to proove it. Thank you to all who voted for my 250 - I
understand it was unanimous.
A very happy and surprised owner, I had not realised there was any sort of competition.
