FCA

The Art of Ferrari Challenge will be held September 3-5 and tickets will be sold at the gate during the event weekend.

The jam-packed 2010 season at Watkins Glen International just got a little fuller with today’s announcement that the FCA Art of Ferrari Challenge will now be open to fans for the first time.  The addition of the new event was announced during a joint press conference involving WGI and the local chapter of the Ferrari Club of America at the legendary road course.  The Art of Ferrari Challenge will be held September 3-5 and tickets will be sold at the gate during the event weekend.

“We continue to highlight the best of motor sports at our historic road course by showcasing a variety of racing classes and series,” said Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International. “The sleek and powerful cars of the modern Ferrari Challenge, such as the Ferrari 430 and its 490 horsepower engine, will undoubtedly be a huge hit with our fans.”

“We are thrilled to be able to work with WGI to make our popular weekend a spectator event so that fans of Ferrari and motorsports as a whole can see these cars in action,” said Leon Bourdage, regional director of the Ferrari Club of America.  “Fans will get a chance to see true gentlemen racers push their cars to the limit very much in the same mold as Cameron Argetsinger and the other early non-professional drivers that established racing in Watkins Glen in 1948.”

The event weekend at The Glen will be the only event in the entire United States to feature the cars from the Ferrari Club of America and both the modern and vintage Ferraris that compete as part of the Ferrari North America Challenge Series.  Fans attending the racing events at the track can choose from several ticketing options:

·         Weekend (3-day) General Admission - $50

·         Saturday and Sunday GA - $25

·         Saturday GA – $20

·         Sunday Only GA - $15

·         Kids 15 and Under – FREE

Every ticket is essentially an all-access pass that includes all grandstands, the tailgate zones, main paddock, garage, and general viewing areas will be open to any fan holding a ticket.  Camping will not be available.  The numerous Ferraris that race at WGI will also be put on display during the popular Art of Ferrari festival held on Market Street in Corning, NY, on Friday, September 3.  2010 will mark the 10th anniversary of that street festival. Fans can get more information on the race weekend by going to www.TheGlen.com or both the race weekend and festival by visiting www.artofferrari.org.  More information on the North American Ferrari Challenge can be found by going to www.ferrarichallenge.com.
