We are just five weeks out from our driver bootcamp we call The Final Drive (TFD17). This private member only event has a long legacy as the premier open road driving event.

Not only did our traditional Ferrari feature exceed expectations, but in just two short hours, Fuelfed and FCA members donated $1170.00 to the American Red Cross to help those US residents hurt by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. We are very proud of our Fuelfed volunteer dedication as well as our select car community and the great friends it has brought together.

Now that is the true Fuelfed Spirit!

Our sixth annual Ferrari feature at Coffee & Classics Winnetka is this coming Sunday, September 24th. With over 60 Ferraris on display, it is one of biggest displays of four-wheeled Italian artistry anywhere. Continental Autosports will be bringing some of their exclusive favorites as well.

With over 160 classic European cars in addition to the Ferraris on display, our September Coffee & Classics is one of most popular car events of the season. As such, there will be no Day Passes or Modern Member cars (Ferrari excluded) allowed in the display areas…sorry.

In addition to the Ferraris, we are raising money for the American Red Cross to help those hit hard by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. 100% of Sundays’ proceeds will go to the Red Cross. Please look for the white buckets at the gates and yellow table and donate. Our brother and sister enthusiasts appreciate it.

The red starts at 9:00am.
