Ferrari Challenge and Ferrari Passion ... Excitement and a show for 15,000 people in Valencia


Cheste, 22 May 2017

The Ferrari weekend in Valencia was like a party for nearly 15,000 people. Over 100 Prancing Horse cars alternated on the over four kilometres of the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, offering the adrenaline of motorsport and the thrill of seeing some of the world’s most beautiful cars on the track and in the paddock, where a stand displayed the entire range. Enthusiasts could buy official products from a Ferrari Store.

70 for 70 years
The Valencia weekend saw the European debut of the 488 Challenge, the new turbo car developed for the 25th year of the world’s most famous one-make series, but there were also two fantastic Ferrari parades. Seventy cars, representing the 70th anniversary of the marque, headed by the LaFerrari Aperta, the iconic car of the anniversary, paraded first on the circuit and then in the city, in the elegant City of Arts and Sciences, to the applause of fans and enthusiasts. Customers could drive their Ferraris on the track, enjoying the extraordinary performance of Prancing Horse cars in perfect safety.

Tight races
Motorsport lovers enjoyed the four races of the Ferrari Challenge Europe, whose season opened in Valencia, and offered the usual spectacle with wheel-to-wheel duels and thrilling overtaking. All the drivers loved the 488 Challenge and it is already clear that the next race in Monza from 9 to 11 June will see more cars on the grid than in Spain.
