Scarperia, 3 June 2012 – This weekend the Mugello track hosted the third round of the Ferrari Challenge Europa, where friends from the Community had been invited to join us today. With the pass they had the possibility to watch the races from the paddock and the terraces above the grandstand, to meet the staff and to have a look at the boxes, where drivers and mechanics work. A Challenge driver was available in the afternoon for a hot lap with a 458 Italia. Later on the guests from the Community watched a Challenge race from behind the scenes at the TV compound TV and met many available and nice members of the staff and the teams.
Daniele: A great day. The lap on the track and the directing were really exciting. I’m usually following the races in TV and I didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes during the live broadcasts. It was really interesting.
Marco: Everything was really nice, also the organisation. I really would have liked it if the lap had been at least half an hour longer… I would have loved to do the race!
Namal: That was a fantastic day for me: the organisation starting with the welcome at the accreditation centre. Everything was new for me, but I felt really well inside the world of Ferrari. The lap on the track was incredible, the car is incredible and Beppe showed me how a proper driver races. The live broadcast was very impressive. What seems like chaos and rush leads to a very nice result.
Marco: The lap on the track was just stunning. I really like the whole organisation. I’ve been with you before, in Fiorano and in Mugello, also with the Community. I hope to come back to the Works one day, I would love that.
