Ferrari North Europe hosted its 10th annual charity event at Silverstone at the end of September, hosting children whose families have been supported by Ben, as well as children who have been granted wishes by a charity called Rays of Sunshine.
Over the last 10 years, 500 children have had an unforgettable experience through Ferrari Day, being driven round the Stowe circuit in a Ferrari California, or, more recently a Ferrari Portofino, by professional drivers. The children were also invited to explore the paddocks and garages for the Ferrari Challenge, and this year were also able to experience a grid walk prior to the final race of the season in the Ferrari Challenge UK.
Francesco Balli, Regional Manager for Ferrari North Europe, said: “It is an incredible honour and privilege to share the Ferrari brand with so many deserving children, and to be able to offer them such an unique and memorable experience. It is amazing to see the smiles of all the children and their positivity is inspiring. In the words of Enzo Ferrari, ‘if you can dream it, you can do it.”
The Ferrari North Europe Charity event was one of the main activities for Ferrari during the Ferrari Challenge UK race weekend at Silverstone. Details of next year’s event will be announced in due course.
