The Monza circuit welcomed the Challenge races and some Scuderia Ferrari Community premium users this weekend. The guests were invited to attend the activities at the track and have a look behind the scenes at the box, the TV centre and the races with the participatin Ferrari clients.
In the morning, with a member of staff, the guests visited the TV compound, where they watched the qualifying, before a visit at the pitlane with Beppe Schenetti, the ex-Challenge driver, who explained the characteristics of the brand-new 458 Challenge, the car, which is on the race track for the first time here. An exciting lap on board of the 458 Italia with a professional driver completed the day for the lucky guests, who will be back here tomorrow.
Here are some comments at the end of the day:
luigibossa: "I never expected to be invited to Monza by Ferrari and when I received the invite I couldn't believe it. The day was really exciting and ended with a thrilling lap in the 458 Italia. The invite really surprised me; I'm a huge fan and I do have some memorabilia at home I bought from the Ferrari Formula 1. Another great part today was Laura's fantastic welcome."
Irene: "the real fan in our family is my husband, but I really liked it on the track and get to know the 458 driver. He was today's surplus. I was so impressed by all the work behind the races and the explanations of all the different aspects, which seem so different from the outside."
antoniogiuliano79: "a very positive day. I didn't hope to receive an invite. The lap on the track...even getting into the car is so exciting. The driver made such a good impression on me, but also the mechanics at the box and the work at the pitlane. I think I'll follow the Challenge much more now; I also really like the way it's communicated."
Gabriella: "I was really impressed by the behind-the-scenes. All the people working there you never see, but who all work so hard!"
Tomorrow today's guests and others will be back at the track for another day with the Community and the Challenge for fans and enthusiasts.
