Last weekend, the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza has hosted the Finali Mondiali (World Finals) of the Ferrari Challenge, an international monobrand competition consisting of North American, European and Asia-Pacific legs. ROSSO attended the event and is bringing you on a journey in Italian excellence.
The Finali Mondiali are the single biggest Prancing Horse kermesse in the world, and a true full-immersion experience when held in Italy. Hosted by the Mugello circuit last year, the Challenge always sees an Italian stop for the European leg in Imola, a truly historic track. Monza, however, is in a league of its own. The Temple of Speed has always been the greatest representation of motorsport excellence, both in Formula 1 and in smaller categories. Tifosi from all over Italy and the rest of the world come in swarms in the small Italian town, celebrating the Italian excellence and racing pillar that Ferrari is. Fans have the chance of admiring classic, era-defining racing and road cars in the exhibition paddock and join the mechanics in the pits, enjoying an unprecedented insight on the Maranello spirit. Here you can find a selection of some of the great opportunities offered to the Ferrari fans in Monza.
The Ferrari Challenge sees dozens of Ferrari 488 Challenge supercars fighting each other by the inch on track. The Finali were entered by no less than 37 of these V8 3.9 beauties, in their race-adapted setup: a different rear wing, 126-litre fuel tank and, of course, specific safety devices.
