Over 100 Ferraris toured Italy's most beautiful places
Maranello, 25 June 2018 - The seventh edition of the Ferrari Cavalcade was held in Valle d'Aosta from 20 to 24 June. Over 100 Maranello cars from all over the world drove along the most fascinating roads in the area dominated by Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest peak. The event, as always for customers and loyal collectors, allowed participants to share their passion for the Prancing Horse by visiting some of the most beautiful places in Italy. Proceedings kicked off in Saint Vincent, where the Ferraris paraded through the town centre and were at the disposal of the fans on Wednesday evening.
On Thursday, the cars set off for La Thuile and the Little St Bernard Pass, where the first hill climb regularity test took place. After lunch in Courchevel, France, the caravan arrived by late afternoon in Aosta’s historic Piazza Chanoux, where the Ferraris paraded in front of a crowd of fans. On Friday, the cars took part in the second regularity test on the road to the Great St Bernard Pass, crossing the border into Switzerland and France before dinner on Mont Blanc with the cars exhibited at the Skyway cable car forecourt in Courmayeur.
On Saturday, the participants left the high peaks to head to the Balocco Experimental Centre, where they lapped the track in skill and regularity tests. On Sunday, the over 100 Ferraris stopped at the marvellous waterfalls of Lillaz and then in Conge, arriving at the Place Moulin Dam in Bionaz, before finishing their journey at the Roman theatre of Aosta where the final gala dinner was held. During the evening, some Ferrari memorabilia were auctioned, the proceeds of which will be donated to the restoration of the ‘lunettes’ of Issogne Castle, the scene of the gala dinner on the first day.
