A night at the Museum

Valencia, 28 November – Yesterday, thanks to the hospitality of the Comunitat Valenciana, the Prince Felipe Science Museum was the scene of an unforgettable evening, at which Ferrari brought together many of its devoted customers and competitors in its racing programmes, who are here in Valencia to take part in the Finali Mondiali, the traditional celebration that brings the Maranello marque’s racing season to a close.

The evening got underway with a joint welcome from Ferrari President, Luca di Montezemolo and the President of the Comunitat Valenciana Francisco Camps, followed by the unmistakeable sound of the engine in an F10, driven by Fernando Alonso, outside the spectacular building designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava. The evening featured the presentation of awards to the champions in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, as well as recognising the achievements of drivers in the International GT championship, who have enjoyed yet another successful season. It fell to Felipe Massa, Fernando Alonso, Giancarlo Fisichella, Marc Gene and Luca Badoer to hand out the prizes to the winners and their applause made way for a breathtaking firework display.

The evening also featured a special prize for Fernando Alonso as the Spanish sports daily, Marca, awarded him the “El Marca Leyenda” which goes to an athlete or sporting personality whose achievements this recognises. The paper’s director, Eduardo Inda handed over the award to Alonso, who is the fifty first person to be thus honoured since the prize was established in 1997.
