Spielberg, 03 September 2011 - This weekend the Austrian race track of Spielberg is hosting the Ferrari Racing Days, delivering loads of red passion on a track where in the past many exciting Formula 1 races were held. Also here in Spielberg the Scuderia Ferrari Community had invited some of the Premium Users to be part of the two most important days of this event, Saturday and Sunday. Today the Ferrari fans watched race 1 of the Ferrari Challenge Italia from the TV compound, followed by laps on the track, which was a unique moment for the users: on board of a 458 Italia for a lap next to a professional test driver. Later on the enthusiastic participants had the possibility of a pit walk tour at the box and along the pit lane.
Here are some comments from the participants, who can't wait to be back tomorrow:
Thomas Lenitz: this was a fantastic day, we saw so many cars and we could live and feel the Ferrari spirit. We saw a lot from the teams, the TV compound, the walk through the box...but the best moment of the day was the hot lap with the 458 Italia, an unforgettable moment.
Philipp Alexander Elbl: fantastic, a great day, this place is wonderful. What more could you ask for: wonderful weather and so many Ferraris around! A big hello to all Ferrari fans.
Kurt Peter Jermann: a wonderful day, perfect organisation, the people from Ferrari were always really friendly and available to answer all of our questions.
We'll be back tomorrow again here at the Spielberg circuit!
