Silverstone sees the largest Ferrari parade ever organised

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 17, 2012

A new world record was set at the Silverstone circuit for the largest Ferrari parade ever organised. Although it has yet to be made official by Guinness, there leaves no doubt that the 964 Ferraris have beaten the record established in 2008 of 490 Ferrari at Japan’s Fuji Speedway Circuit. The parade’s guest of honor was Felipe Massa who led the parade while driving a 458 Spider.

The Scuderia Ferrari race driver said that the experience was “really unforgettable” with multiple cars placed in one race track. Ferrari fans were treated to an outstanding exhibition. These Ferraris had come from throughout the UK. They gathered at the Silverstone circuit as part of the Ferrari Racing Days. The event became a success due mostly due to the cooperation of the British Ferrari Owners Club.

Their efforts were for a noble cause too as Ferrari has donated £5 for each car in the parade to BEN, a British charity that supports workers from the auto industry as well as their families. Marc Gene, a special coach for drivers who joined the F1 Clienti programmes, also participated in the event.

Spectators were given the chance to closely view the Ferrari lineup such as the newest model, the F12 berlinetta, the most powerful road car that the Maranello marquee has ever built. The Guinness World Records Limited Commission is expected to confirm the record by the end of next week.
