    With Schumacher in the Ferrari California

    The 3rd to 5th October will see the tenth running of ‘Ferrari Racing Days’ at Germany’s Nürburgring. A major attraction this year is the attendance of Michael Schumacher, presenting the brand-new Ferrari California.

    Ferrari Racing Days is an annual highlight for supporters of the Prancing Horse. It’s an event where passionate enthusiasts can enjoy their favourite cars, with more than 1000 Ferraris expected in the Nürburgring paddock.

    Michael Schumacher, who was actively involved in the development of the latest Ferrari GT model, the California, will be driving the new convertible on a lap of the Nordschleife.

    A regular component of Ferrari Racing Days is the one-make race series, Ferrari Challenge Europe, along with the Shell Historic Challenge – with both series making their only German appearance of 2008 at the Nürburgring over the weekend.

    Ferrari Racing Days 2008 remains faithful to its family-friendly philosophy: as in previous years, entrance is free for children under 12, when accompanied by adults.
