Once again this year 12 highest bidding couples were given the unique opportunity to experience seven of the most gorgeous Ferraris on the planet and five equally breathtaking classic convertibles through the English countryside in aid of Children in Need, all part of the CarFest event.
The tour, starting at the Berkshire home of BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans also saw the lucky few sit in on the Radio 2 show broadcast live from the Ferrari garages in the company of F1 legend Jody Scheckter with a breakfast provided by TV Chef James Martin. Later they were treated to a thrill ride with The Stig from BBC Top Gear around Thruxton race circuit.
Of course whilst all the lucky auction winners were enjoying the fine dining, hotels, hospitality and the CarFest event itself – the cars needed to be kept under cover so they looked their best for the big moment. This is where Hamilton Classic came in, providing tailored car covers made from our high tech Moltex material for each of the cars to ensure they were cosseted whilst out on tour in the manner to which they are accustomed!
To celebrate this, we also gave away two of our exclusive Hamilton Classic beanie hats to two winners quick enough to identify these covers on our Twitter (@hamiltonclassic) and Facebook (Facebook.com/hamiltonmotorsport) pages.
