Ferrari Racing Days Return to Mazda Raceway
F1 Corse Clienti, FXX and 458 Ferrari Challenge Races on the Schedule
MONTEREY, Calif., February 27, 2012 – With a unique sound all their own, historic Ferraris and their modern-day relatives will take to the race track May 18-20 for Ferrari Racing Days.
“We had a tremendous response to this event last year,” says Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “Ferrari’s have such a loyal following and we had participants and spectators from around the world turn out to see these cars in their natural environment – the race track.”
Ferrari 458s will compete alongside their predecessor the F430s in the Ferrari Challenge as well as separate 599XX, FXX and Shell Historic races. The highlight of the weekend might just be the F1 Clienti races, where the high pitch whine of these extraordinary machines reverberates through the race track and surrounding hillside. There is a nothing like the sound of an F1 tearing down the straightaway.
This exciting single marque racing series allows Ferrari owners and gentleman drivers seeking to sharpen their skills to compete against each other on some of the finest race tracks in the U.S. and Canada. The vehicles have the same overall appearance and engine as road-going Ferraris while utilizing track-oriented modifications and features.
The Ferrari Challenge Series is organized by Ferrari North America, Inc., and is sanctioned by the Grand American Road Racing Association. Complete information can be found on www.ferrarichallenge.com.
