PROWED MOMENT: King of the road meets former queen of the sea - 20 Ferraris will visit the Titanic memorial in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland - Ferrari owners’ clubs from Ireland and Scotland will meet for the first time in this city on May 12 for a special Ferrari event on the world’s most iconic shipbuilding slipway.

The event, hosted by the Irish Owners’ Club and Charles Hurst Specialist Cars, will see Ferrari owners take a special tour of Titanic Belfast and use the opportunity to showcase a range of classic and modern Ferrari cars on the slipways from which the Titanic set sail on her fateful maiden voyage in 1912.


It will be the first time that Ferrari owners’ clubs from the British Isles' two Gaelic-speaking countries have worked together and is part of a weekend-long programme of events.

Alan Tyndall, the Irish club's co-ordinator, said: “The sight of more than 20 Ferraris in front of the staggering new Titanic Centre will be an image that will be beamed across the world. We're grateful to the Titanic Centre for allowing us to stage this unique picture opportunity.

“I'm delighted to welcome our Scottish Ferrari friends to Ireland; we will be combining with them to create this unique image.”


Kevin Rogan from Hurst cars added: “Together with the Irish Owners’ Club, we have been working hard to ensure we show the Scottish Owners the most iconic sites of Northern Ireland.

"We’re looking forward to what’s set to be a fantastic event – the building and slipways will provide a spectacular backdrop.”

A range of Ferraris will be on display on the Titanic Slipways behind the new Titanic Belfast building, including the recently launched Ferrari FF, the Ferrari F40, Ferrari 430 Spider and Ferrari Testa Rossa.
