“Chris Butler, who is normally at the sharp end of 328 group, managed to score three outright wins, which was something that’s fairly unprecedented.”
Whilst there will also be three races for the more modern Ferrari Club Racing Series, it’s not the just the competitive drivers who get to have all the fun this weekend in North Yorkshire.
“Unusually, with this event, we’ve got the opportunity for non-racers to get on track as well, with a track day actually taking place in the race weekend,” explains Will. “You can’t do that very often, unless you’re running the event yourself.”
It’s not all just being done in the name of fun though – there’s also a very worthwhile theme to an element the Club is offering at Croft.
“Spectators have the opportunity to get out on track as well,” Will notes. “With our charity partner Extra Cover, which is providing education for children in the Far East, people will have the opportunity to go out for passenger rides in Challenge cars, be it a 488, a 458 or 355, which is quite special.”
Away from the asphalt, there’ll also be a chance for the paying public to get up close with some of finest sports cars in the world, both new and old.
“We’re also expecting to see some of the latest models,” Will says. “Last time out Ferrari brought an 812, the new Roma, the SF90 and the F8 Tribute.”
He emphasises how Ferrari events can always be relied upon to throw up a few surprises.
“Someone else did brought along a Monza SP2, along with their Ferrari Enzo – as you do!”
That’s not forgetting some of Modena’s more classic offerings: “We’ve been really pleased at previous events with cars like 250s and 330s that came out from the ’60s as well – so I’m expecting more of the same.”
If you get tired of the cars, there’s also some fail-safe alternatives to keep you entertained.
“There’ll also be live music, food and all the usual kind of family friendly stuff as well.
“It’s really a sort of a complete celebration of the marque.”
A celebration, also, of motor sport returning to the UK’s tracks once more.
