  1. Evocations of the past at the Autodromo del Mugello

    Maranello, 29 March 2007 - This weekend, the Mugello circuit hosts the opening round of this season's European Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, for historic cars built by the Maranello company.

    The cars which must be in possession of a "Technical Accreditation Document" from Ferrari, proving their original provenance, are divided into categories, depending on type and date of manufacture and compete in different grids.

    The 2007 version of the series, which since 1999 has also been open to Maserati cars, boasts a special atmosphere in the paddock, where period dress is de rigeur. The series runs over five rounds.

    This first round at the Scarperia (Florence) track forms part of the first running of the Mugello Historic Festival, which is already establishing itself as a key event for international historics, with a field of around 200 historic four wheeled beauties.

    Tomorrow, Friday 30 March, starts with the first practice sessions including those for the FIA Historic Formula One Championship, for old single-seaters. Other events which add their own speciality to the race card include the GT & Sports Endurance Masters, providing further flavours from the past.

    Sunday 1 April is the main day of the meeting and features a special parade for Ferrari F40 cars, as part of the European celebration of twenty years of this prestigious Prancing Horse model.

    The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello has come up with a special package so that spectators can make the most of this step back in time: on Friday, entry to the circuit is free, while the inclusive general admission-paddock ticket (15 Euro full price; 10 Euro concessions,) is valid for both Saturday and Sunday, while families are catered for as under-14s get in free.
     
  2. Tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM i'll Star my Ferrari 208 Turbo intercooler to go there...
    I hope to see more F40 as possible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  3. Ferrari festival at Mugello with the historics

    Scarperia (Florence,) 31 March 2007 - The Mugello Historic Festival gets underway today. This is a unique event for car fans featuring over 200 cars in the paddock and on track, many of them having contributed to some of the most unforgettable moments of international motor sport. Ferrari has chosen to dedicate this weekend to its own historic cars, with the opening round of this season's Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge and the first event in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the F40.

    On the card this weekend at the Mugello International Circuit is the first round of the championship for historic Prancing Cars and the venue also provides the finishing point for the F40 Trophy, a regularity race which sees 40 of this prestigious Ferrari model taking part, as 2007 sees this model joins those eligible for a "Certificate of Authenticity" from the Maranello company.

    After starting from the Fiorano track and making a stop in Florence, the F40s continue on their way to the Scarperia track, crossing the famous Futa Pass, one of the most spectacular stretches of the Mille Miglia. The event continues tomorrow with a special parade on the Tuscan circuit.

    Today's programme also featured the first races in this season's Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, with the win in Grid A for single-seaters going to the 1960 256 F1/FL of Tony Smith, while Paul Knapfield and his 1980 Ferrari 512 BB LM won the Group C race (for cars with disc brakes.)

    Tomorrow, Sunday 1 April is the main day of the event and is entirely given over to races, which also feature several other series, including the FIA Historic Formula One Championship, for cars that raced in the blue riband events in the past.

    The F40 Trophy, a regularity event that preceded the parade on the Tuscan track, opened the celebrations for the twentieth anniversary of this prestigious Prancing Horse model and in the coming months will also be part of the Ferrari Days at Silverstone and Hockenheim, as far as Europe is concerned, as well as a further event in North America.

    After setting off from the Fiorano track and making a spectacular pass through Florence, the F40s made their final approach to the Mugello International Circuit via the famous Futa Pass, one of the most spectacular sections on the Mille Miglia. The winner was Eric Prinoth, the Italian Champion among the gentlemen drivers competing in the Shell Cup, part of the Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophy, which uses the F430.
