Budapest, 26 June 2017 – Ferrari’s 70th anniversary celebrations landed in Budapest over the weekend, with the third round of the Ferrari Challenge Europe. Prancing Horse customers from Hungary and neighbouring countries could take part in a series of events aimed at sharing the passion for the marque.
The parades. Two parades took place on Friday, one starting from the city centre and heading to the Hungaroring circuit and the other organised in the afternoon in the opposite direction, which concluded with an exclusive dinner. Customers also had the chance to take their cars for a spin on a track that in under a month will host Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel in the Formula One Grand Prix.
The paddock. The paddock, as always in the 2017 Ferrari Challenge and Passion Ferrari events, hosted a Ferrari Store along with the entire Ferrari range, including the LaFerrari Aperta, the car symbol of the 70th anniversary, and the single-seater cars used before the 488 Challenge, the 348 TB and TS, F355, 360, F430 and 458.
The races. The four races of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and Coppa Shell were also held over the two days with Daniele Di Amato, Eric Cheung, Chris Froggatt, Jens Liebhauser and Johnny Laursen.
