    Thirty competitors from Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli North America are set to challenge the legendary Mugello Circuit over the Finali Mondiali Ferrari week.

    Trofeo Pirelli. With a maximum of 34 points on offer (15 to win, one for pole and one for fast lap for each race), Mark Kurzejewski (Ferrari of Beverly Hills) has provisionally captured the Trofeo Pirelli championship with a 47-point advantage ahead of the huge event weekend.
