Unique track
The track needs no introduction. Spa-Francorchamps is a circuit on which some of the most important pages of motorsport history have been written. It was once over 14 kilometres long and was on public roads. Now it is half that size and is a permanent track. The drivers love it for some of its most famous sections: Eau Rouge, Raidillon, and Stavelot, the high speed corners before the finish line and the Bus Stop chicane.

Exceptional tutors
Ferrari Development Driver Marc Gené guided participants in their pursuit of maximum driving pleasure. Marc helped the customers of the 15 Formula One cars and over 50 of the XX cars to focus on the key points of the track and then assisted them in setting up the car. There were 15 FXX Ks on the Ardennes track, for a total of 15,750 hp, an incredible figure in addition to the other two cars of this very special activity.

Downforce and Extreme Power
Two 599XXs and fourteen 599XX Evos, the second car of the XX Programmes launched in 2009, took to the track. This front-engine car is endowed with extremely sophisticated technologies, such as a system that sucks the air from the undercar to help it adhere to the tarmac. There were also five FXXs, the first car in the series, launched in 2006, whose extraordinary power still makes it a favourite for professional drivers who play the role of tutor.
