Passione Ferrari Silverstone 0 600x344 at Gallery: Passione Ferrari at Silverstone

Yesterday the Silverstone F1 track was draped in red as it hosted the Passione Ferrari event, one of the biggest and finest Ferrari events of the year in all of Europe. Besides the massive gathering the program also included the annual Ferrari California T charity event which gave the whole thing some meaning by adding a good cause to it. This is something super car meeting organizers in America can probably learn from.

Passione Ferrari at Silverstone track saw the assembly of some of the world’s hottest Ferraris, including a number of incredible FXX K and 599XX cars from the Corse Clienti department in Maranello, and a number of rather significant historic Ferrari F1 cars like a 312T in which Clay Regazzoni won the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 1975 and the USA Grand Prix at Long Beach in 1976, a 312 T5 which was the last of Ferrari’s F1 T cars and was driven by both Jody Scheckter and Gilles Villeneuve in the 1980 season, and a 1990 Ferrari 641/2 which Nigel Mansell campaigned during the season to help Ferrari win the World Championship, with a Pole Position and a 1st place at the Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril.

As for the Ferrari California T charity event hosted by Ferrari North Europe, Rays of Sunshine, a charity which grants wishes to terminally-ill children, and BEN, the automotive industry’s own benevolent fund that helps families in the automotive industry in times of need brought 50 children to Silverstone for the Passione Ferrari event, with each child having a passenger ride in a Ferrari California T around the Silverstone Stowe Circuit. The gallery below captures some of the best moments of the event:
