A crowd of 18,000 flocks to the Ferrari Family Day
Record visitor numbers in Maranello for the employee open day
Maranello, 23 September 2017 – What better way to celebrate Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary than with a record turnout for the now-traditional Family Day for the company’s employees and their families. In all around, 18,000 people thronged the Maranello factory complex and the Scaglietti premises in Modena for the event which was also attended by Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne and Vice-Chairman Piero Ferrari. Some of the company’s most exclusive areas were opened to the visitors especially for the occasion, not least the new car test-benches and Ferrari Classiche department in the Production Car area as well as the ultramodern GES Racing Division building where the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team is headquartered. The latter, of course, was hugely popular. Family Day also provided a close look at the single-seaters past and present as well as other racing cars. Also on display, of course, was the current GT range, most notably, the newly-arrived Ferrari Portofino.
