Ferrari Aims For A New World Record!



13th May, 2007

Ferrari Racing Days

British Ferrari owners are calling on their fellow Ferrari owners from around the world to help them beat the Italians at their own game and set a new world record for the “Largest Parade of Ferraris”.

Held under the auspices of the Guinness Book of Records, the record attempt will take place on 9th June during the three day ‘Ferrari Racing Days’ meeting at the historic Silverstone Race Track in England. Ferrari GB aims to fill all 5.1 kilometres of the Northamptonshire race track with Ferraris.

In addition to the Guinness World Record attempt, the Ferrari Racing Days event will feature the UK round of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli with over 60 equally matched Ferrari F430 Challenge cars jostling for position on one of the fastest F1 Grand Prix circuits, and the ultra-exclusive FXX which will be making its only official UK appearance. It will be an action-packed weekend of Ferrari festivities which will appeal to Ferrari clients and the ever-faithful Tifosi.

Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone is the UK focus of Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary and, quite appropriately, will also feature the Ferrari Historic Championship in which classic road and race Ferraris compete in three different categories to relive the golden era of motor sport. Ferrari’s customer motor sport division, Corse Clienti, are also supporting several Ferrari clients who will be demonstrating a range of famous and historic F1 cars from the company’s racing past.

Part summary of Motor Sport Activity for Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone:

Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli

The Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli is a race series dedicated exclusively to the Ferrari F430 Challenge which Ferrari clients can enter in a series of races at some of the most demanding and prestigious race circuits in Europe. In 2007, the F430 Challenge car is entering its second season of competition with an endurance race format that promises to offer dramatic action as the 30+ equally-matched V8 Ferraris jostle for position at every corner.

The F430 Challenge is a race-prepared version of the F430 road car – both feature Ferrari’s acclaimed F1 “paddle-shift” gearbox and carbon-ceramic brakes, but the race car also features a full GT-spec roll-cage, Lexan windscreen and air jacks and centre-locking wheels for quicker wheel changes. The F430 Challenge race car also runs on 19” tyres which were specially developed by Pirelli for this championship. The F430 Challenge reaffirms the very close link between Ferrari’s competition and road car departments.


For the fortunate few, Ferrari invited 29 of their clients to purchase an FXX and join the company as a “Client Test Driver”. With only 29 FXX manufactured (plus one for Michael Schumacher), the FXX development programme is one of the most exclusive technological test-beds available to clients. Their use is exclusively restricted to race circuits around the world – the car is not homologated for road or race use. The FXX forms a critical part of Ferrari’s commitment to research and development, with many of the innovations developed as part of the FXX programme being evaluated for potential use on future Ferrari road cars.

Ferrari Historic Challenge

With an unrivalled heritage of important and iconic competition cars, the Ferrari Shell Historic Challenge is the perfect arena for historic Ferraris from every decade to be enjoyed in their natural environment – on the race track. The series is a stunning showcase for the proud history of competition Ferraris spanning 60 years, with unique cars such as a 1950 Ferrari 166 Inter Vignale, a 1960 Ferrari 250 SWB California Spider, a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Competizione, and a 1980 Ferrari 512 BB Le Mans racing on track now just like they did when they first left Maranello.
