Second and last day for the Community at the Challenge in Monza. The eight guests, invited by Ferrari.com, attended the debut of the 458 Challenge, the car, which raced this weekend next to the GT Sprint series and the Superstars Championship. The guests followed the race from the grandstands, went for a lap in the 458, driven by Beppe Schenetti, enjoyed a pit walk and listened to the technical comment regarding the 458 Challenge.
Here are some enthusiastic comments from today's guests:
matteoschumi: "It's always great fun participating in these events, because it's a really unique experience. I've already participated in two events with the Community and I hope that I will have another possibility in the future."
katiusca: "It was the first time for me on a track and I really liked the lap in the 458!"
deckard61 (Mario Memeo): "What can I say? A great show as usual! I'm the 'old guy' in this group. But today I was like a child. I got into a car with a driver. What more do you want? I've been a member of the community since 2000 and I continued so I could participate in the events, which are not open to everybody. These events bring you closer to something that is a legend for us. They give you the possibility to get really close and maybe even buy a Ferrari one day!"
Maurizio: "It was such a unique possibility to get into the car, see the paddock, being close to the mechanics and the cars and actually get into them, something you usually only dream about! Beppe (Schenetti, eds.) really makes you feel his passion. Something virtual turns into reality: first you're reading the blog, the website and then you experience a day like this!"
Antonio and Gabriella: "A very special thank you to Beppe Schenetti, who enabled me to make such a great experience. Also today was such an exciting day."
Luigi: "These 2 days with Ferrari were so exciting. As a guest I'm really happy. I hope that I might be able to repeat this experience if I'm picked again as a guest for these special events."
Irene: "My compliments to the director. I really liked how much passion he puts into the live broadcasts, but also to Schenetti, who is very prepared with lots of passion! Thank you, Ferrari!"
