Even though the Cavallino Classic event is now in its 23rd year, it is still very young and healthy.

As usual, the four days were very busy with Thursday and Friday reserved for track time at Palm Beach International Raceway.

On Saturday, the main exhibition at The Breakers Resort takes place, this year’s theme being the 50th birthday of the Ferrari 275 GTB.

And finally, on Sunday everyone gathers at Mar A Lago for an exhibition of cars produced up to the 1970s, and a charity brunch. As usual it was a great success of weather, people and, last but not least, of cars!

A sign of the times perhaps, but at PBIR, there are few old Ferraris (and only a couple of Maseratis), and an increasing number of more “recent” Ferrari sports cars.

Next week we’ll take a look at the best from Cavallino at the Breakers.

The Daytona interests two of Florida's more interesting birds.

Pete, Mark’s last named is misspelled. It should be DONOHUE. Great article, many thanks, JACK
