Thumbs up A ride on Fabio's FPT

Well quite enjoyed my nearly 9mins of fun on Fabio Buzzi's famous FPT and didn't even have to chip in to what would have probably been over £120 worth of diesel burnt at those speeds
Nose of it looked a bit longer than I remember it did on the ole Ring 21 and the rooster tail looked longer to

Back in June, I got a cheap return EasyJet flight over to see the Crazy Old Man.

Twas a good day, tour around the factory, splendid Iti Lunch and home again!

The funny thing was, over lunch, I couldn't believe how much FB reads of this forum!

So here is a message -

The weather at Cowes was horrible, the females were ugly, the food was terrible and a gasoline powered boat won the race.

Now that is how you flush the salt away!

Love watching the rooster tail as he throttles up & down near the end!

Lake Como

When the old Shockwave was based at Buzzis yard we did some testing on the lake using his facilitys. One day we were running up the lake at about 100 mph when we decided to turn round a small bouy and run back when the 'bouy turned out to be a bald man swimming accross the lake!!! God knows what he thought was going to happen!
