Ferrari Racing Days Suzuka 2016

Ferrari Racing Days Suzuka 2016, the special circuit event for Ferrari owners and fans, will be back to Suzuka Circuit again this year, for 2 days on 5th – 6th March 2016. Regular admission tickets and Upgrade pass will be available from tomorrow, 23rd January, via Lawson Tickets (http://l-tike.com/). Furthermore OWNER PASS for Ferrari owners goes on sale via the Official Ferrari Network.

Ferrari Racing Days Suzuka 2016 is one of the largest events organised by Ferrari Japan in 2016, for owners of the Prancing Horse and fans, celebrating the spirit of its motorsport and racing DNA. The world’s most prominent one-make race and opening race of the 2016 season, the Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific (*1), will be held, as well as an array of exciting track activities by Corse Clienti (*2).

The highlight of this event is the debut of the Ferrari FXX K on a Japanese race track, which was officially unveiled in December 2014 during Finali Mondiali in Abu Dhabi. The FXX K is a laboratory car, based on Ferrari’s first hybrid model, the LaFerrari, and boasts extreme performance, total system output of 1,050cv, and a maximum torque in excess of 900 Nm. The K in FXX K stands for KERS, Kinetic Energy Recovery system, used to maximize performance on the track.

F1 Clienti (*3) track activity of Formula1 cars F310B (1997), F2001 (2001), F2003-GA (2003), and F10 (2010) will also be making an appearance. In addition, other track-only models, such as the FXX and 599XX will also be making rare demonstration runs, only available for viewing at this event.

A record number of 35 drivers, including an all-time high number of Japanese drivers, are scheduled to race at the Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific. There are four categories for each race: Trofeo Pirelli, Trofeo Pirelli AM, Coppa Shell and Gentlemen Cup, the latter for those over 55. Four races in one, therefore, with four winners per race and four opportunities for a great spectacle.

Among the many programmes during the weekend, Ferrari owners will get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their own splendid cars to see how they measure up during track sessions such as the Sports Drive and Excite Drive. Also this year, and for the first time, the Upgrade pass, with pit walk, will be available for purchase for Ferrari fans. This is a rare chance to see, up close, all the race cars in the paddock area.

This action-packed weekend will be open to everyone including Ferrari owners and fans to experience the world of Ferrari.

*1 Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific Series

The Ferrari one-make race, Ferrari Challenge, established in 1993, will be holding its 24th event in 2016.

The Asia Pacific series, established in 2011 and now in its sixth year, will be kicking off the 2016 first round of six races at the Ferrari Racing Days Suzuka 2016.

These racing activities are designed and arranged to match each individual’s skill level. Reflecting the conviction of Enzo Ferrari to preserve the rigorous relationship between the race cars and road cars, Corse Clienti seeks to honor the wishes of owners that desire to challenge themselves by racing in the one-make race, Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, Ferrari GT races and other F1 and XX programmes.

*3 F1 Clienti

Established in 2003, the F1 Clienti department brings to life an otherwise would be only dream, that allows certain lucky Ferrari owners to own and drive special Formula 1 cars.
