Treat Dad to Ferrari Racing Days
By David Arnouts
If you are looking to spoil Dad for Father's Day this year, consider Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone Circuit outside of London.
The event—which takes place Sept. 15-16—is the only chance the public will have to see the exclusive FXX and 599XX on track.
Also on hand will be a small portion of the historic Ferrari F1 cars from the Ferrari Clienti program and cars from the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Ferrari Club Challenge events.
As a special treat for those in attendance on Sept. 15, organizers will attempt the “Largest Parade of Ferrari Cars.” The current record is 490, and the target is for more than 500 vehicles.
For every car that participates in the parade, Ferrari North Europe will donate £5 (about $8) to the automotive industry charity BEN.
Tickets are £15 ($23) if purchased early or £20 ($31) for the entire weekend. Kids 15 and younger are free.
While the tickets are inexpensive, you'll spend substantially more on the airfare to cross the pond. A Detroit-to-London ticket runs roughly $1,000 round-trip per person, and that doesn't include the ride to the track or hotel.
But can you put a price on the smile you'll put on Dad's face when he finds out that you are taking him to Silverstone for a weekend of Ferraris?
