Scuderia Ferrari Community meets the drivers during the ‘filming day’ in Jerez

February 14, 2011 · Posted by Staff

Jerez de la Frontera, 14 February 2011 – Second extraordinary day for the fans from the Scuderia Ferrari Community, who today had the possibility to watch the Team at the ‘filming day’, dedicated to a shooting for promotional purposes with the car and the drivers.

At the circuit the fans were welcomed by Marc Gene Marc Gene, who first joined them in the motorhome for breakfast and then accompanied them to the box with the Ferrari 150° Italia, where the Community members were able to follow the work on the car, before it went onto the track for the shooting.

Marc, as usual friendly and professional, took the fans in a vehicle from the team onto the track to show them the characteristics of the Spanish circuit.

First from the grandstand and later on from the pitwall the guests followed the different stages of the shooting from a helicopter and with an on-board camera on the track, while Fernando and later Felipe were driving the single-seater, the fans could see from close up. The pit stops during the shooting were extremely exciting, because the atmosphere was relaxed and only a few people gathered around the car. At the end of morning the fans met Felipe Massa, who signed autographs and was available for numerous photos. The amazed guests had lunch with the Team in the Scuderia’s hospitality area and got ready for another highly anticipated moment: the meeting with Fernando Alonso. The Spanish driver signed autographs, joking with the friends from the Scuderia Ferrari Community.

Here are some comments from today:

MARIO: this was incredible and it started with the breakfast with Marc Genè. He’s such a nice and easy-going guy; I didn’t think that a racing driver could be like that. The meeting with Alonso was unbelievable, I’m still without words!

IRENE: a really unique experience. Thank you so much, Ferrari for all of this! I didn’t expect to see Felipe and Fernando. What a day!

ALAIN and ISABEL: everything was really very special. From the lap on the track with Marc, where he explained the corners and the driving style for the track; we’re so happy to be here and about what we experienced.

GAYNOR and FRANCIS: this was unforgettable. We are so lucky to be here. It was important so subscribe to the Scuderia Ferrari Community, otherwise we couldn’t have made this experience. It’s my 40th birthday this year and I have to say that this is the best present I could get. Forza Ferrari, let’s hope we’ll win this year!

RONALD: I want to thank you so much for this invitation: Formula 1 is a world of its own, so difficult to enter. We had the possibility to see it from up close and behind the scenes, which is an unusual experience!

CHRIS: I’m really still under a shock. The most beautiful thing to see is that you really are a big family, helping each other with everything.

JORGE: today my dream came true. Thanks so much to the Community. I never thought that by subscribing I would end up here.

ISMAEL: a big family and everybody is so friendly, while they let us have this incredible experience.

ELIAS: Thank you, thank you for remembering the fans, who support you in every single race, on every circuit around the world.

DANI: I’ve seen tests and races before, but what we have seen here today tops it all. They were all so friendly and courteous: FORZA FERRARI!
