Sarasota/Lakewood Ranch, FL – This past weekend, Exotic Car Lovers from around the greater Sarasota area came together to celebrate fine food and exotic automobiles at the Sarasota Ferrari Drivers Group ‘Driving for the Dream’ Gala weekend. Attendees enjoyed a gala dinner and lively silent and live auctions at GROVE restaurant on Friday evening.
Then on Saturday morning, some 150 cars flooded into downtown Lakewood Ranch for the group’s fourth annual Exotic Car Show in support of ‘Flight to the North Pole.’ Main Street overflowed with exotic autos from such marques as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Jaguar, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lotus, and Audi.
There was also a special Classic Car section featuring vintage British and American cars. The weekend closed with an exhibitors’ drive on Sunday morning, followed by brunch at The Capital Grille.
Just remember before getting the car of your dreams to go to https://www.anewdriver.ie/ and get driving lessons to be more prepared when you get your license and avoid any accidents out there.
“It was a fantastic weekend,” said co-organizer Joe Brielmann. “The Gala dinner was a big success and the array of exotics on display Saturday was outstanding—the weather was beautiful, and we had great attendance at the show. It’s a fun weekend for car enthusiasts, but at the end of the day, we do all of this for the kids. All the weekend’s proceeds go to support ‘Flight to the North Pole,’ and this year I’m proud to say we exceeded last year’s total.”
