The following story is just….. astonishing! Roofless Ferrari owners, some of them worth $2 million or more, paid a $30,000 admission fee for a large outdoor gathering only to have a surprise thunder shower dump heavy rain on the roofless cars! Here’s the full story:

Apparently there was no “what if” prep for this event in the off chance this happened. - no extra tarps or anything like that - wow. Just wow.

I love the article tagline:

“If you’re going to go on a multiday rally in a $2 million roofless supercar, check the weather first.”

I'm sure this group can afford the cost to repair whatever damage occurred. 

You wonder why the cars didn't come with tonneau covers for the interior.  Heck, I had one for my Caterham 7.

And that didn't even have much of an interior to cover... 🤣 🤣 🤣

Oh for sure. But can you imagine. No one had a plan in case it rained. At least one that was feasible. And just to get your slot was $30k
