FERRARI RACING DAYS RETURNS TO SILVERSTONE
Friday 1 August, 2014
The Silverstone Grand Prix circuit will once again host the exciting Ferrari Racing Days in September, with a packed schedule of on-track activities from the F1 Clienti, XX programme, Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Pirelli Ferrari Open. Apart from the end-of-season Finali Mondiali, the Ferrari Racing Days event at Silverstone is the only race meeting in Europe where Ferrari fans will be able to see all of these different track activities at the same venue on the same weekend.
The F1 Clienti will see important and historic F1 cars from Ferrari’s illustrious racing heritage take to the track each day for demonstration laps, with the most loyal and passionate Ferrari clients given the chance to live their dream – to own and drive a Ferrari F1 car on a current GP circuit. The XX programme experimental development cars will also take to the track twice each day, with Client Test Drivers pushing their XX programme cars to the limit on the fast and challenging Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. These were considered a highlight of the Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone in 2012.
In addition to the F1 Clienti and XX programme, Ferrari Racing Days also includes races from both the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Pirelli Ferrari Open. The Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli is the one-make racing series for Ferrari’s mid-engined V8 cars, with packed grids of the 458 Challenge currently being raced by experienced and “Gentleman” drivers in two 30 minute races, in round 5 of the 7 race European series. The Pirelli Ferrari Open is a race series organised by the Ferrari Owner’s Club GB and is open to previous Ferrari Challenge cars.
Ferrari will also be offering owners the chance to paint Silverstone red once again, to relive the excitement of 2012 when 964 Ferrari cars set a new Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Ferrari Cars. Ferrari owners will be invited to take to the track once again as part of a special tribute parade on Saturday, with registration only available on the day. The Scuderia Ferrari will also be putting on a thrilling F1 display on Sunday.
Tickets can be purchased via www.silverstone.co.uk or via the hotline: 0844 3750 740. Advanced tickets are available from £15, with children aged 15 or under free when accompanied by a paying adult.
