430 Challenge and Shell Historic Racing Entice Ferrari Enthusiasts
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 13 /CNW/ -- Ferrari North America, Inc.,
will be returning to Mont Tremblant for the 4th consecutive year to host its
annual Ferrari Festival, the weekend of June 15-17, at Le Circuit raceway.
Open to the public, the race weekend will include Ferrari 430 Challenge and
Shell Historic vintage racing events.
Now in its 14th racing season in the North America, the Ferrari Challenge
Series (utilizing race-prepared 430 Challenge vehicles) offers Ferrari owners
who are not professional racers the opportunity to compete against other
Ferrari owners in a highly competitive racing series at world-class venues
throughout the U.S. and Canada, and is regarded as the longest-running series
of its type in North America.
"For more than 60 years Ferrari has been synonymous with the very same
passion that our owners, drivers and fans experience as they watch all levels
of Ferrari competition worldwide. We are proud to continue showcasing this
tradition," said Maurizio Parlato, president and CEO of Ferrari North America,
The Ferrari Challenge 2007 season extends through a total of 7 races,
including two within Canada (the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, coinciding with
Montreal's annual Formula One race, June 8-10th; and Mont Tremblant, Quebec,
June 15-17, at the home track of Ferrari's North American driving school), as
well as the season's World Finals, held October 25-28 in Italy.
The Ferrari Challenge is one of the numerous "exclusive" experiences that
Ferrari offers its customers -- and whether owners are actually racing in the
series, dining in the luxurious VIP hospitality tents, participating in
weekend driving clinics or socializing with those that share their enthusiasm
for Ferrari, the weekend festivals provide a unique atmosphere and
incomparable experience. General public can enjoy the races, peruse the
paddock areas, and enjoy the overall Ferrari-festival type of atmosphere.
The Challenge Series is one of the many assets Ferrari provides
exclusively for its owners, and together with experiences such as the annual
Ferrari Rally (www.ferrarirally.com), and Ferrari's North American Driving
School in Mont Tremblant, Quebec (www.experienceferrari.com ), the company
continues to provide environments where owners can enjoy their cars in the
manner for which they were intended - with top performance and through unique
opportunities and venues.
