While the preparations for the final celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Ferrari – scheduled, as you all know, at the upcoming weekend in Maranello - move on, we could witness a successful attempt by the great Eugenio Molinari to set up a record on Lake Como on board of his boat, fitted with the F430’s V8 engine. Fortunately I was able to witness this umpteenth attempt by the constructor from Lariano, crowned by his 71st record…. And I can assure you that there was lots of emotion involved, especially when you imagine that there was a 71-year-old man on board; that shows once again, how will and determination can move mountains.
Having said that and having congratulated this great man of aquatic sport once again, I had promised you a surprise for the 60 years of Ferrari – and a surprise it will be! Next Friday we will officially launch the world’s first Web TV Ferrari, implemented and designed not only to celebrate the 60 years of the Prancing Horse, but also to give you the opportunity to relive the most important moments of its history: with photos and articles dedicated to the most decisive men and cars.
We hope that all this will be a further stimulant for all of you to visit our institutional website more often and above all that you will take part in the initiatives our community is offering, such as the one during the upcoming weekend, where the 15 winners of the “Ferrari 60 Grand Prix” will be our exclusive guests for the final celebrations of this spectacular event.
Not let me conclude, thinking about the people, who make all these things possible every day. Obviously I’m talking about the fellows at the newsroom. I want to thank them for the hard work they have done to update the Community over the last months, working on the special website, which follows the events around the 60 years of Ferrari, and I also want to thank them for making the demanding and ambitious Web TV Ferrari project possible. Now obviously it is your turn, but please let me offer my congratulations to Ferrari for these exceptional 60 years and I am sure you all want to join in….
