Almost 70 drivers from all over the world will take part in the event. Two groups have been created: one for the Pirelli Trophy Europe, the Pirelli Trophy and the Shell Cup Asia Pacific another for the Shell Cup Europe, the Pirelli Trophy and the Shell Cup North America.
But there won’t be only racing. Over the long weekend in Mugello historical single-seaters from Maranello’s F1 Clienti department as well as the 12-cylinders from the XX programmes – the FXX K, the FXX and the 599XX – will be taken onto the track. The Scuderia Ferrari will show up on Sunday for the traditional good-bye with the drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Sebastian Vettel, offering a show behind the wheels of their single-seaters.
After today’s races Duyver is still leading the Shell Cup classification with 40 points ahead of the now second-placed Singhania, overtaking Prinoth, who is now in third place. In the Pirelli Trophy AM Nelson leads with two points ahead of Vezzoni, followed by De Bernardi in fifth position.
Kessel Racing will participate with nine cars: Alexis De Bernardi and Peter Knoflach will start in the Pirelli Trophy AM, Fons Scheltema, Rick Lovat, Murat Cuhadaroglu in the Shell Cup while Jacques Duyver and Gautam Singhania while fight for the title in the last two races. The drivers for the team from Grancia will be reinforced for the occasion by Anthony Imperato and Chris Cagnazzi, who have been racing in the North American series.
The Ferrari Challenge in Mugello can be followed on TV on Motors TV in Switzerland. In Italy they will be shown on one of the SKY SPORT channels.
