The 2016 edition of the Finali Mondiali, the first to be organised in the Americas, will be hosted by the Daytona International Speedway from 1 to 4 December. Four days of great excitement and entertainment, imprinted by the air of exclusivity that only Ferrari can deliver, will be dedicated to customers, supporters, and all Prancing Horse fans. Sports, passion, and competition will combine with the unmistakable attraction of the historic Formula 1 cars and with the incredible power and beauty of the XX Programmes cars. The FXX, the 599XX, and the FXX K, the latest creation of this particular activity of the Prancing Horse, will excite the spectators with their design, power and leading-edge technology, including the hybrid system of the FXX K, derived directly from the experience acquired by the Scuderia in Formula 1. These are just some of the elements that will enrich the programme, which will conclude the racing season of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli with the last races in the three series: Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific.
Then, on Sunday, a record number of 458 Challenge EVOs will take to the track in pursuit of the coveted world championship title. Expectations are also high also for the Formula 1 show: Scuderia Ferrari will put on a display with its mechanics and drivers at centre stage to demonstrate pit stops, mind-boggling accelerations, and top-speed laps on the mythical Daytona tri-oval, where Ferrari Formula 1 cars will flash past its famous parabolic turns for the first time. The Competizioni GT cars will also be on the track, after participating throughout the year in the most prestigious championships. The official GT drivers will join the Daytona celebrations: the WEC stars who race on the 488 GTE, “Gimmi" Bruni, James Calado, Sam Bird, and Davide Rigon. The IMSA championship drivers Toni Vilander and Giancarlo Fisichella will also be there.
Another highlight of the event will take place on Saturday evening. There will be a great Ferrari parade, possibly one of the biggest ever seen. Hundreds of models from all eras will be seen lapping one of the most iconic circuits in the world. An unforgettable sight to behold!
Many activities organised in the paddock will complete the World Finals programme. Among them will be those devoted to the youngest fans, the store and also the road cars line-up will be on display, including the brand new GTC4Lusso T which was introduced only a few weeks ago at the Paris Motor Show.
