Ferrari in Guinness record bid

2012-06-19 07:30

Ferrari in Europe wants to break a Guinness world record for the largest parade of Ferraris at a Prancing Horse event at Silverstone in England in September 2012.

The Ferrari Racing Days event at Silverstone on September 15 will set the scene for what is expected will be the largest parade of Ferraris – more than 600 cars have already registered for the event, the automaker said. Ferrari North Europe aims to collect 1000 registrations before the event.

RECORDS COME AND GONE

The record was first set at Silverstone in 2007 when 385 Ferraris took to the Silverstone track for that year's Racing Days, although the current record is 490 cars but the local Ferrari Owners' Club and fans of the Maranello-based brand from the UK and around the world will reportedly support the effort to re-set the record and will be treated to displays of Ferrari’s FXX and 599XX development cars on the track.

Fans will also be wowed by a display of historic Ferrari F1 cars and a packed schedule of races, among them the Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophye and the Ferrari Club Challenge.

    How do I fly my FXX and my Enzo to Silverstone. My Gulfstream G650 is just a wee small and inappropriate to transport them. I also don't see to have enough time. Any charitable contact will do.

      If you (really) have all those cars, fly over, hire an FXX for the day, go there, join up, come back. Problem solved.

      If you owned an Enzo FXX it would be kept and maintained by Ferrari and would be available for you to drive on the day. As for the Standard road legal Enzo leave that at home!
