‘Ferrari Racing Days’ Ready to Roll into Laguna Seca, May 10-12
Plus, FXX cars and over 50 488 Challenge vehicles will hit the track at WeatherTech Raceway.
For every car enthusiast the name Ferrari instantly evokes passion and child-like grins like few other luxury automotive brands. Come May 10 to 12 at Monterey County’s WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California, the wonderment will be fulfilled with the sounds of Ferrari Formula One and track-only XX cars revving to the limit as part of the Ferrari Racing Days and Corse Clienti programs.
These track-only Ferrari thoroughbreds will complement a full field of more than 50 Ferrari 488 Challenge cars that comprise the most famous one-make championship series in the world. The paddock will be filled during Ferrari Racing Days with Ferrari race cars and street models that will immerse enthusiasts into the marque’s world.
The Formula 1 Corse Clienti single-seaters return to Monterey much to the delight of racing fans. The Ferrari F1 Clienti program takes the Formula 1 cars of the world’s most successful team and makes them available to an exclusive number of owners. These F1 thoroughbreds from the recent past carry the famous names such as Schumacher, Barrichello, and others who once piloted these incredible racing machines at the highest level of motorsport competition. It is uncommon to see these cars, let alone see and hear them at speed on the race course.
The XX Program brings to the track very limited-edition cars developed exclusively for the track by tester customers. These vehicles are backed by the experience of professional technicians and drivers for an unparalleled driving experience. The FXX-K Evos will also be on track. Watch as they exploit their 1,000-plus horsepower produced by the 6-litre V12 and the Hy-Kers hybrid system. They will be accompanied by FXX-Ks, which unlike the Evos don’t sport the aerodynamic kit. There will also be 599XXs and 5999XX Evos that have contributed to the success of the program.
The Ferrari Challenge provides both true race fans and casual race enthusiasts and families with the opportunity to see and hear these rare cars, and get up close and talk to the drivers. In many cases, race teams invite children to jump inside the cockpit for photos.
Advance VIP Hospitality packages, general admission tickets, preferred parking and camping are currently available online at WeatherTech Raceway.
