The Mugello International Circuit (Florence, Italy) hosted the Ferrari World Finals, the traditional event that closed the Prancing Horse’s sports season, from Wednesday 19 to Sunday 23 October.
Events included the final rounds of the season for the Italian, European and American Ferrari 360 Challenge Pirelli Trophy series, along with the usual final race to decide the outright champion on a world level. It also marked the unveiling of the new F430 Challenge, which will be used in the Ferrari one-make series as from next year. Also on the Tuscan track was the 2005 grand finale for the Shell Ferrari Maserati Historic Challenge, also open to the historic cars from the Trident marque.
Completing the busy programme was an exhibition of the single-seaters prepared by the F1 Clienti department at Maranello and a demonstration from Scuderia Ferrari providing the highpoint of the final day.
To support the World Finals, Ferrari invited Enzo customers to bring their cars to Mugello for the world’s largest gathering of Enzo Ferraris, with 50 cars on track on both Saturday and Sunday.
Ferrari GB invited seven Enzo customers to participate in the weekend’s events, with the cars being prepared by Ferrari GB technicians prior to being transported to Italy. Each car also had a Union Flag applied to the roof of the car to clearly identify the UK contingent. The UK Enzo Ferraris also sported Fiorano Ferrari branding on the side of the cars to showcase the new marketing programme recently launched by Ferrari GB for Ferrari customers.
Massimo Fedeli, Managing Director for Ferrari GB, commented, "The Ferrari World Finals is the culmination of a fantastic year for Ferrari in the UK, with another record year for sales, an impressive performance in the 360 Challenge in only our first year, and the launch of our new customer driving programme, Fiorano Ferrari. The seven Enzo Ferraris we have invited to the World Finals demonstrate our customers’ passion and enthusiasm for Ferrari, and we are privileged to have been trusted with so many rare and valuable cars."
