The Community at the Challenge in Imola behind the scenes
April 22, 2012
An exciting day with unstable weather conditions in Imola for the second round in the Ferrari Challenge Europa. The three guests from the Community started the day with a visit at the paddock and the 458 Challenge at the boxes. Later on they watched the extremely exciting race from the hospitality area. At around 1pm it was time for the special surprise: a lap on the track in a 458 Italia, driven by the expert Beppe Schenetti, which delighted the lucky participants.
The guests watched a race from the TV compounds, discovering how everything works. At the end of the day we asked the participants their impressions of the event:
Lorenzo: apart from the wind everything was really nice. This should be done again. I just wanted to do one more lap to go on the main straight with top speed. The Sky TV control room and the Ferrari production were very interesting. I can’t imagine how stressful this work might be. The world of racing is wonderful and to see it from this perspective it’s even more exciting.
Thomas: the Ferrari organization was just perfect, I’m so happy that I’ve been invited to this event. I met exceptional and very professional people. The driver for the lap on the track was great. It was so exciting. I want to underline that I’ve always been a Ferrari fan, even when things didn’t go so well.
Valerio: I want to thank Ferrari for this great opportunity. The organization today was perfect. The top was the lap on the track. I think this is something you only feel once in a lifetime. Thanks so much also for the enthusiasm you showed for us and my compliments to you all. I hope that I can repeat this experience!
