Mugello, (Scarperia,) 7 April – Just a few days before the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli season gets underway this weekend at Monza, owners involved in the XX programmes, along with historic Formula 1 car owners have been taking part in a test session at the Mugello circuit, under the supervision of the Ferrari Corse Clienti department engineers.
On this special day, those entered in Ferrari’s non-competitive track programmes were able to see how they measured up on a very technical track, boasting the very latest safety standards. For some it was a case of getting a feel for the excitement of Formula 1 and for those in the XX Programmes, a chance to enjoy the pure pleasure of driving in complete safety.
There were a dozen Ferrari 599XX on track, with the non-homologated sports car designed exclusively for track use joined by three FXX and seven historic single-seaters, including two 1998 F300s, an ex-Schumacher F2002 and, of the more modern cars, the F2007 that Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro took to both World Championship titles.
Special guest on the day was Marc Gene, the Spaniare who works with Scuderia Ferrari on car development, in Mugello as a coach for those owners driving their historic F1 cars.
Those enrolled in the Ferrari Corse Clienti’s non competitive programmes will be back in action at the end of May at California’s Infineon circit, as part of the first Ferrari Racing Days of the season and the opening round of the North American Ferrari Challenge Championship.
