Ferrari 70th anniversary celebrations at Le Castellet

Passione Ferrari France 2017

Maranello, 25 July 2017 – Prancing Horse customers enjoyed three perfect days of Passione Ferrari and Corse Clienti events at le Castellet as part of the Ferrari 70th anniversary celebrations.

Parade and Club Challenge. Customers had the chance to drive their Ferraris in the safest conditions while exploiting the potential of the cars on track. Also, the Club Challenge offered the sportier drivers the opportunity to take a short test drive in a 488 Challenge competition car. In so doing they could also consider whether to attend one of the Driver’s Courses and maybe pick up a championship driver’s licence. On Saturday afternoon the customer cars descended on the track for two laps on parade before heading off to the sea for a gala dinner. The event was opened by three examples of the LaFerrari Aperta that together comprised the colours of the French flag.

Challenge. Fans and customers also enjoyed four keenly fought Ferrari Challenge Europe races. The winners over the two days were Daniele Di Amato, Bjorn Grossmann, Tommaso Rocca, Jens Liebhauser and above all Henry Hassid of the Charles Pozzi team, whose triumph in both Coppa Shell races inspired a hearty rendition of the Marseillaise from local fans. More than 10,000 paying visitors and customers also had a chance to test themselves on the F1 simulator available in the Ferrari Store, which this season is present in the Challenge paddock at every event. Five Challenge cars of the past and the current Prancing Horse range were also on show at the Paul Ricard.
