Valencia - We met the lucky premium users from our Community, who came to Valencia from different parts of Spain and also from Italy, under a clear sky with mild temperatures.
They were ready for the first of the three days of the Finali Mondiali Ferrari, the event concluding the Corse Clienti season with the different drivers in motorsport competitions and the non-competitive participants together on the track.
In the morning the guests were invited to the TV department, where the images from the qualifyings and the races are transmitted to around 40 countries all over the world, where TV specialists and technicians deliver a great show to viewers, based on technology and their capacity of reaction. Later on the guests had an exclusive meeting with Alvaro Barba, winner in the International GT Open Championship with a F430 GT2.
Today eight Community members participated in the Scuderia Ferrari Community activities entering the box of the 599XX and the historical Formula 1 single-seaters.
Giorgio (Milan): I have always been a huge Ferrari fan and to be here is fantastic. I could see the cars of my dreams. The best bit was seeing the historical Formula 1 cars on the pit lane during the clients' show. It was unbelievable!
Jose Carles (Valencia): I come to the Ricardo Tormo circuit quite often, but seeing the Formula 1 cars pass and those fantastic supercars is really exceptional. We met Alvaro Barba, who told us about his work. We're really proud to have a driver from Valencia with such a great career. The Challenge races are really impressive, a challenge right up to the last corner. Seeing them from so close up is a real privilege.
Jose Luis (Madrid): I liked a lot that we could enter the box, walk past the XX and seeing the GT cars from close up, even getting inside them. I admired every car I saw, the 458 Italia, the California, the 612 Scaglietti and the 599 GTB Fiorano.
Pedro (Valencia): This is all completely new, I'm very happy to experience the race track of my home town this way. I can't wait for the other activities tomorrow and on Sunday!
