Excitement on track at Ferrari Racing Days in Sepang

Sepang, 23 February - The first Ferrari Racing Days held in Asia ended with the biggest parade of Ferrari cars ever seen Malaysia. The cars lapped the Sepang circuit for a long while and at a sedate pace, so the spectators in the grandstands could enjoy this magical spectacle to the full. Apart this truly memorable event there was also plenty of adrenalin fueled action along with stylish and enjoyable entertainment. Kicking off the day was another show from the three Formula 1 Clienti cars, that did several laps, perfectly recapturing the feeling of a Grand Prix.

It means the spectators were able to enjoy the sight of two F2001s which Michael Schumacher had taken to the world title, as well as the F2007 with which Kimi Raikkonen became champion, all under the watchful eye of the Scuderia’s test driver, Marc Gene. After Formula 1, it was time for the cars in the XX programmes to ramp up the action, as two FXX and seven 599XX cars thrilled spectators in the stands with the noise of the engines and their extreme performance.

The highlight of the day however was the second race of the Asia Pacific Ferrari Challenge, run using the new Ferrari 458 Challenge EVO model. Taking the wins were Australia’s Steve Wyatt in the Trofeo Pirelli and the Indonesian David Tjiptobiantoro in the Coppa Shell. Once again, the actual overall winner was Italy’s Max Blancardi, who was ineligible for the championship as he is part of the Pirelli Pro group. Wyatt, who had also taken pole position for the Trofeo Pirelli, made short work of the opposition, especially as yesterday’s winner, Philippe Prette found himself having a difficult day. Second was again the Singaporean, Weng Sun Mok, who beat veteran Italian Angelo Negro into third by almost two and a half seconds.

In the Coppa Shell, David Tjiprtobiantoro scored a fantastic double, again starting from fourth on the grid. The Indonesian finished eighth overall and beat his closest pursuers by several seconds. There was yet another close fight for second on the podium between Australia’s Paul Van Lohenhout who once again took the runner up spot by a whisker, this time beating Hong Kong’s Francis Hideki Onda.
