Fine food and Ferraris on menu

FLASH, fast and fabulous described the flurry of Ferraris descending on Wodonga’s Junction Place at the weekend.

The Ferrari Club of Victoria chose Wodonga for its annual Valentine’s weekend rally that involved 58 members travelling from Melbourne.

About 1500 residents got a look at 30 of the new and classic vehicles on show yesterday morning in the old Wodonga railway station car park outside Broadgauge restaurant.

Club members enjoyed an exclusive three-course dinner at Broadgauge on Saturday night before a drive to the King Valley for lunch yesterday.

“It was a wonderful weekend and our members were impressed with how far Wodonga has come in the past five years,” club president Trent Smyth said.

“There’s the repositioning of the railway line and the CBD has been improved.”

Mr Smyth said owning a Ferrari was a magical experience and one which was magnified when shared.

“It’s great sharing knowledge with those interested in learning about the cars,” he said.

Mr Smyth’s 1972 Dino 246 Ferrari is one of 35 in Australia that does not have the word Ferrari or a “prancing horse” badge.

There were cars dating from the 1960s through to this year’s latest models, including one priced at almost $700,000.
