THE UK’s 12 official Ferrari dealers are to celebrate the Prancing Horse’s 70th anniversary as a grand summer tour takes in high-profile locations.
A series of events and parades will be held, headlined by the limited series LaFerrari Aperta, pictured at Windsor, which is also the highlight of Ferrari’s presence at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from June 29 to July 2.
After its starring role at the Festival of Speed, the LaFerrari Aperta will be travelling around the official Ferrari dealer network throughout July and into August, where fans will be able to see the exclusive car as part of a display of Ferrari cars showcasing the heritage, design and racing history of the automotive brand.
The final event on the LaFerrari Aperta’s UK tour will be Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone from September 22 to 24, where the car will lead a parade of iconic and historic Ferrari cars around the British Grand Prix circuit. Ferrari Racing Days is the UK round of the Ferrari Challenge European Series, in which the 458 Challenge makes its final appearance alongside the 488 Challenge, which will run solus in the Ferrari Challenge in 2018.
