More than 1000 Ferraris have been registered in the attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Ferrari Cars, scheduled for Saturday 15th September 2012 during Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone Circuit.
Ferrari previously set the record with 385 cars on the Silverstone Circuit at the Ferrari Racing Days in 2007, but this was later increased to 490 cars. Even though over 600 cars had registered in the first month when the 2012 attempt was announced, Ferrari has always had the ambition to set a Guinness World Record with 1000 cars. Registrations remain open as Ferrari anticipates the recently extended Silverstone Grand Prix circuit can accommodate more than 1000 cars on track.
Ferrari North Europe said the outstanding interest is thanks to the support from the Ferrari Owners Club and Ferrari enthusiasts all over the UK and abroad. In addition, Ferrari will be donating £5 for every car entered into the world record attempt to BEN, the automotive industry’s own charity.
Ferrari Racing Days 2012, held at Silverstone Circuit 15-16 September, is the only motor racing event in the UK where Ferrari fans will see the FXX and 599XX development cars on track and a wide range of historic Ferrari F1 cars from the F1 Clienti department, together with a packed schedule of races from the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Ferrari Club Challenge, the Pirelli Ferrari Open.
Advance weekend tickets are available for £15 per person, with children (aged 15 years and under) free of charge. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event for £15 per day and £20 for the weekend per person.
