““[Bill Gates] has been historically one of my best supporters…One of my favorite e-mails he ever sent me…I proposed this crazy project. And he sent back this two-line response: ‘This has got to be the craziest thing you’ve ever suggested. Please proceed.’” ”
Florida's Ferrari Festival
The Palm Beach Cavallino Classic, one of the premier annual gatherings of auto enthusiasts, takes place from January 19 to 24 at the city's Breakers Hotel. The Concorso d'Eleganza, which features some 150 classic Ferraris, highlights the show, but there is much more for aficionados to see and do. The six-day gathering includes an autocross event and a touring rally with classic and vintage Ferraris.
Jet Aviation's invitation-only La Bella Macchina coincides with the Cavallino Classic. On January 21, the FBO's West Palm Beach facility will host a reception that will celebrate Ferraris, private aircraft, yachts and other luxuries. Tours of the display aircraft are a hallmark of the event, which attracts thousands of Ferrari owners, socialites and business people.
In addition to the reception at Jet Aviation, the Cavallino Classic includes Artists' Preview at the Breakers and a ShowBoats Yacht Hop at the Rybovich Yacht Club.
