Just like real mechanics

Valencia – Another intense day for the Scuderia Ferrari Community premium users, invited to Valencia to experience the Finali Mondiali Ferrari celebration. At 9:30am the pit walk, an exceptional stroll where the cars present at the boxes were explained to the guests.

Later on in the morning the group of fans watched race 2 in the Ferrari Challenge Italia - Trofeo Pirelli, where after an exciting race the title went to Stefano Gai, racing in this category for the first season.

Around noon the guests had an extraordinary opportunity: watching the Historic Race, the competition with historical cars, held for the first time here at the Valencia circuit. The guests watched the race from the pitwall, while the cars passed only a couple of metres away from them.

In the afternoon everything was ready for race 2 in the Ferrari Challenge Europa - North America, where our friends had the possibility to go onto the track, having a close look at the 430 Challenge a couple of minutes before the start.

The race was followed by what was probably the most amusing and enjoyable part of the day: a pit stop race, where the team from the Scuderia Ferrari Community changed the tyres of an F10 in an absolutely competitive time…and they gave everything: while changing the tyres, behind the wheel as well as behind the lollipop. Everybody contributed to gain the final prize: a visit at the Works in Maranello. The result will be announced tomorrow.

Giorgio: The day took the right turn when I was at the pitwall taking pictures of the cars passing! That was great!

Joan Carles: I really liked being on the track right before the start of the race. It’s nice to see how the drivers and mechanics get ready, how the drivers are concentrated and experiencing the tension before the race.

Virman: I was really impressed by the F1 Clienti single-seaters; those are the original cars used in races many years ago. That box was pure history!

Pedro: I had so much fun with the pit stop race: it’s really exhausting changing tyres! But it really was like when the driver comes in and you have to give everything so that he can restart as soon as possible.

Giulia: I just arrived from Rome and was immediately part of the team and in the F10’s cockpit! There’s so much noise and hectic life around. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. I can’t wait to meet the drivers.
