Ferrari event to be hosted in the USA for the first time, at Daytona International Speedway
America’s most iconic racing circuit will be home to Ferrari next as part of a very special Ferrari owner’s event.
This is the first time Ferrari’s Finali Mondiali will take place in Americas, so it’s fitting that the Italian marque should choose one of the most daring, purpose-built circuits in the US.
And as such, one of the most anticipated events of the Finali Mondiali weekend will be the ‘live’ exhibition of the Formula 1 Scuderia Ferraris as they tale to the the world’s most famous tri-oval track.
The significance of these machines to motorsport history makes this demonstrate all the more incredible: the Scuderia Ferrari has been in Formula 1 since 1950, the first year of the world championship. It has competed in 925 Grand Prix races, winning 224 of them, and its trophy case displays 16 manufacturers' titles and 15 drivers' titles.
At Daytona the cars of the Scuderia will put on a display with rubber-burning starts, ludicrously fast accelerations, and spectacular pit stop demonstrations by Scuderia's slick mechanics.
But that’s not all there is on offer. The Finali Mondiali also takes the XX Programme cars - including the FXX, the 599XX, and the FXX K - to the track. This ambitious client development programme will showcase the XX series’ design, power and technology.
For the finale on Sunday a record number of 458 Challenge Evos will be on track in pursuit of the coveted world championship title. The 488 Challenge next generation racer will likewise be unveiled.
The Competizioni GT cars will also be on display at the event after participating throughout the year in the most prestigious championships. This is indeed a rare opportunity for GT fans to see the incredible machines up-close.
There will also be a number of additional events throughout the four-day Finale Mondiali, including a Concorso d’Eleganze of prized classic Ferraris, activities for the youngest fans, a Ferrari store, and a display of Ferrari’s road cars such as the brand new GTC4Lusso T.
And all of this for the first time on American soil. At one of the most famous racing circuits in the world: Daytona.
The Finali Mondial takes place on December 1-4.
