Daytona to Host Ferrari Finali Mondiali

The 2016 edition of Ferrari Finali Mondiali will be held December 1-4 at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, the first time the event has been organized in the Americas.

Among the most anticipated events of the 2016 Ferrari World Finals weekend will undoubtedly be the exhibition featuring the Formula 1 Scuderia Ferraris taking to the most famous tri-oval in the world for the first time. At Daytona the cars of the Scuderia will put on a display with rubber-burning starts, lightning-fast accelerations and pit top demonstrations by the Scuderia’s mechanics. There will also be speed laps on the tri-oval where Ferrari Formula 1 cars will reach top speed on its high banks for the first time.

There will be six races of the Ferrari Challenge and the XX Programme cars will also take to the track. The FXX, the 599XX, and the FXX K, the latest creation in the cutting-edge client development program of the Prancing Horse, will show-off their design, power and technology which include the hybrid system of the FXX K — derived directly from the experience acquired by Scuderia Ferrari in Formula 1. These are just some of the elements that will celebrate the conclusion of the racing season of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli with the last races in the three series: Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific.

For the finale on Sunday, a record number of 458 Challenge EVOs will be on track in pursuit of the world championship title. The 488 Challenge next generation racer will also be unveiled.

The Competizioni GT cars will also be there, after participating throughout the year in the most prestigious championships. The official GT drivers will join the Daytona celebrations: the WEC stars who race the 488 GTE, “Gimmi” Bruni, James Calado, Sam Bird, and Davide Rigon as well as the IMSA championship stars Toni Vilander and Giancarlo Fisichella.

Another highlight of the event will take place on Saturday evening. There will be a Ferrari parade, as hundreds of models from all eras will be seen lapping one of the most iconic circuits in the world.

Many additional events are set from the paddock to the infield including a Concorso d’Eleganze for classic Ferraris, activities devoted to the youngest fans, a Ferrari store, and display Ferrari’s road cars including the brand new GTC4Lusso T, a selection of the 70th Anniversary liveries and LaFerrari Aperta which was recently introduced at the Paris Motor Show, all of which will be seen for the first time on American soil.
