It was another incredible week-end that took place in Abu Dhabi on the Yas Marina Circuit for Ferrari
enthusiasts. The two-day event was dedicated to track experiences that enable guests to enjoy their
cars on the fast lane of the Grand Prix circuit.
The event started on Friday with a session dedicated to the award winning 458 Italia whom owners
experienced its track capabilities during the afternoon.
Clients had the opportunity to try the full performance of their 458 Italia within a safe and controlled
environment under the supervision of the ‘Pilota Ferrari’ Official Instructors.
Marc Gené, Scuderia Ferrari official test driver since 2004, has made a special appearance to share his
skills with Ferrari owners.
The following morning, the Yas Marina Circuit has welcomed members of the UAE Ferrari Owners Club

In the afternoon, the last session was dedicated to journalists testing the Ferrari California. The

and sporty character of the car.
Ferrari hosted in the afternoon a group of students of the Dubai Autism Center, who had the thrill of
sitting next to Marc Gené driving the Ferrari California on the track.
In the same afternoon, an impressive parade of 78 Ferrari took place in Kuwait on the occasion of the
Concours d’Elegance. The colorful convoy led by a Ferrari California was composed of many
