Sepang, 23 February – The first Ferrari Racing Days held in Asia ended with the biggest parade of Ferrari cars ever seen Malaysia. The cars lapped the Sepang circuit for a long while and at a sedate pace, so the spectators in the grandstands could enjoy this magical spectacle to the full. Apart this truly memorable event there was also plenty of adrenalin fueled action along with stylish and enjoyable entertainment.

It means the spectators were able to enjoy the sight of two F2001s which Michael Schumacher had taken to the world title, as well as the F2007 with which Kimi Raikkonen became champion, all under the watchful eye of the Scuderia’s test driver, Marc Gene. After Formula 1, it was time for the cars in the XX programmes to ramp up the action, as two FXX and seven 599XX cars thrilled spectators in the stands with the noise of the engines and their extreme performance.
“We have a history here in Malaysia and the spectators know the marque and its aura,” said the head of Ferrari Far East, Giuseppe Cattaneo. “We have a long standing group of customers in this country, which we want to consolidate and grow. Here in Sepang, we have seen owners not only from Malaysia, but also from Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and China and, while this is the first time there’s been a Ferrari Racing Days in Malaysia, we hope we can build on the work we have done here, so that Sepang because an annual event on our calendar.”
