Motor racing will be a major part of Classic SpeedFair with a stunning array of racing Ferraris at the heart of the action.
The Ferrari Owner’s Club will bring its two race series, the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic and the Pirelli Ferrari Open, to Scotland for the first time. Organisers will have around 40 racing Ferraris present and in order to get the race cars to Scotland, the Club is organising a fleet of car transporters to pick up the Ferraris from various points in England, including two southern branches of Ferrari main dealers, Graypaul.
It is expected that there will be a strong Ferrari flavour at the event, with many Scottish owners driving their Ferraris to the track and taking part in parade laps on the Sunday. In addition, a number of important historic Ferraris will be on display. “The team at Knockhill, as well as the Scottish Motor Racing Club, is wonderfully enthusiastic about bringing the Ferraris to race in Scotland,” said Ferrari Owners’ Club Competition Director John Swift.
Building on the success of the first two Classic SpeedFairs, the 2008 event will feature celebrations of several famous Motorsport marques, notably Ferrari, as well as the achievement of Scottish race and rally drivers.
Adding to the Ferrari fever and certain to wow the crowds will be Scotland’s very own Championship winning Ferrari Team, Scuderia Ecosse. The West Lothian based British GT Championship winners will be on hand, displaying their professional race team transporter and full kit whilst putting on a dazzling, noisy demonstration with a Ferrari 430 Modena GT car.
