GT & Sport Cars
On Saturday there will be a parade to celebrate the anniversary. Marc Gene will take part.
Moscow, 10 July – Scuderia Ferrari has arrived in Moscow for this year’s Moscow City Racing event, which features international motor sport stars in action in the Russian capital.
Representing the Maranello team will be Marc Gene, at the wheel of an F60, the car the team ran in the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship. The Spanish test driver for the Scuderia is set to electrify the crowd with what is bound to be a spectacular programme. He will do three runs on the circuit, which winds it way around the Kremlin and thousands of fans are expected to turn up to get a close look at a Formula 1 car. Grand Prix racing continues to grow in popularity in Russia, boosted by the presence of a Russian driver on the grid and the fact that, on 12th October it will host a Grand Prix for the very first time on the Sochi street circuit.
Scuderia Ferrari’s presence in Moscow emphasises its relationship with Kaspersky Lab, one of the team’s main sponsors, whose headquarters are in the city and who are one of the partners of this weekend’s event.
On Saturday, Gene will also head a parade of Ferraris that will drive through Red Square, to celebrate the Maranello marque’s presence on the Russian market for the past decade. Scuderia Ferrari will be covering the event on its Twitter page, where one can post comments using the hashtag #FerrariMCR14.
