Finali Mondiali kicks off at Daytona

Published on 02 Dec 2016 13:30

Ferrari's annual end of year celebration has kicked off at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

Finali Mondiali, or World Finals, brings all of Ferrari's one-make Challenge series together, alongside their XX and F1 Clienti Programmes.

The event sees Formula One cars take to the high banks of Daytona for the very first time, with privately-owned cars driven by the likes of Schumacher, Alonso, Alesi, Raikkonen and more all in action.

Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen will be in action on Sunday, performing demonstration laps, pit stops, and donuts in a pair of 2009 Ferrari F60s.

The event will also play host to the auction of the 500th and final LaFerrari. The additional hypercar was built to benefit survivors of the earthquake which struck Italy in August.

In addition to the landmark auction, Ferrari will also unveil their latest race car, the 488 Challenge. The car has already been seen by potential customers, but will be shown to the public for the first time on Sunday evening.
