Newsletter 11: THE FERRIS CARS FINALI MONDIALI TOUR
A “BUCKET LIST” EVENT FOR EVERY FERRARI FAN, PETROL HEAD & CAR ENTHUSIAST
Despite the COVID 19 pandemic, we are forging ahead with some exciting events for later in the year.
We have now finalised the details of the Finali Mondiali, Ferrari’s end of year spectacular!
Obviously, the pandemic is a moving target, but as it stands at the moment, Ferrari has confirmed the function and spectators will be permitted to attend. Unfortunately, due to the situation, we have had to limit the number of hospitality guests to 30 (15 couples).
The only sticking point is whether South Africans will be allowed to fly into Italy. We are confident that this will be possible.
A full breakdown of the tour follows.
Don’t forget to express your interest in the tour now, so you don’t miss out! If you have any questions about the tour, please feel free to contact me, Paul on: 082 851 3300, or drop him a mail at: email@example.com
Once a year, Ferrari gives back to their owners and fans with a special event, the Finali Mondiali (World Finals), hosted by the Ferrari factory and featuring the FIA Ferrari GT Championship, Corsa Clienti, FXX and FXXK programs and Ferrari road cars. This year the event will be held at The Mugello Circuit in Tuscany in early November.
Corsa Clienti consists of previous Championship-winning F1 cars, now privately owned and raced, the “Enzo” inspired FXX and “La Ferrari” based FXXK programs which compete over the weekend in their own FIA sanctioned championship.
Apart from the two days of non-stop track action and hospitality, the tour also includes visits to Museo Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari Museum, Wine Tasting, lunch at the famous Cavallino Restaurant, a 60-minute test drive in a Ferrari through the hills overlooking Maranello and much more!!
