Ferrari: Motor Show – A Red Letter Day

By Auto News Log • December 9th, 2010

Bologna – This was a special day for all Ferrari fans attending the thirty fifth Bologna International Motor Show. The programme for what has become a traditional appearance from the Prancing Horse marque was divided in two parts: one with a racing theme, featuring no less than sixteen F430s from the Italian and European Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the other, a demonstration run when Luca Badoer took to the track in an F60 Formula 1 car.

At the end of the race run over three legs, Philipp Baron emerged victorious in the main category of the Trofeo Pirelli: the Austrian from the eponymous Baron Service team managed to take the win at the end over Andrea Belluzzi, the Motor Modena driver from San Marino and Veregra Competition’s Matteo Malucelli. Among the gentleman drivers in the Shell Cup, the win went to Giuseppe Fascicolo, at the wheel of the car entered by the Rossocorsa/Pellin dealership, from Flavio Pierleoni (Scuderia Veregra) and Massimo Mantovani (Team Malucelli.)

At midday, the competition arena in area 48 was the scene of the traditional appearance from Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro: for Luca Badoer, who drove the car, this was his farewell as test driver. Bringing an amazing thirteen year career to a close, Badoer did some hot laps and carried out a pit stop simulation at the wheel of an F60, the car used by the Maranello Scuderia in the 2009 Formula 1 season and with which Badoer himself drove in his only two races for Ferrari, receiving a very warm reception from all the fans packed into the stands.
