From 3 to 6 December, Abu Dhabi’s spectacular Yas Marina circuit will host the 2014 Finali Mondiali Ferrari, which therefore takes place outside Europe for the first time. The event features four days of excitement and spectacle, of the sort that only Ferrari can provide, aimed at all fans of the Prancing Horse.
The key ingredients of the Finali Mondiali weekend are sport, passion and racing, as well as the unbeatable show put on by the historic Formula 1 cars. It brings down the curtain on the racing year with the final races of the three Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli series, Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific and the grand finale on Saturday, which will feature a record number of 458 Challenge cars fighting it out for the title of World Champion.
Apart from the racing, the main highlight is the appearance of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team, who will put on demonstration runs, with pit stops, burnouts and starts on the Yas Marina circuit. Also on track, the Ferrari GT cars that took part in the most prestigious GT championships, running the 458 GTE, the current FIA WEC championship winning car that was also victorious in the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours, in the hands of Gimmi Bruni, Toni Vilander and Giancarlo Fisichella.
The weekend also features a display of some amazing Ferrari classic cars that have beaten all world records in the most important car auctions. On top of that, there will be a spectacular parade around the 5.554 km of the Abu Dhabi circuit featuring no less than 200 Ferrari cars, as well as the exclusive cars that make up the XX, 599XX and FXX programmes, cars created for the track and run by a very select group of owners.
There will be a host of other activities taking place in the paddock and other areas around the track, as well as something specifically for the kids. And of course, nearby, there are the attractions of the nearby Ferrari World, the first theme park dedicated to the Maranello marque, with all its rides, including the adrenalin rush of the Formula Rossa rollercoaster. Plenty of Prancing Horse fun for the whole family.
