Ferrari enthusiasts were in for another treat as Alfardan Sports Motors, the official importer of Ferrari in Qatar, organised an "adrenaline-pumping" drive event at Losail International Circuit.
The world-class circuit hosted 29 Prancing Horse automobiles with the all-new Ferrari F8 Tributo in the spotlight as it features on the track for the first time in Qatar.
"Having long led the way in automotive excellence, Ferrari is setting a new market benchmark with the F8 Tributo, making the exhilarating performance levels of the best 8-cylinder in the world accessible to all drivers, with unprecedented handling and superior ride comfort," a press statement said.
Among the other participating cars were the Ferrari 488 Pista, Ferrari 488 Pista Spider, Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari Portofino, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Ferrari California and Ferrari California T.
“This track day represents another opportunity for our discerning clientele to celebrate the Prancing Horse’s unrivalled automotive excellence at one of the world’s most impressive tracks," said Charly Dagher, Ferrari general manager at Alfardan Sports Motors. “This is made even more special this time as Ferraristi are getting the opportunity to test drive the all-new Ferrari F8 Tributo for the first time at Losail International Circuit.
"This is a Ferrari that makes exploiting its exhilarating performance potential more accessible than ever before for Ferrari enthusiasts of different driving levels.”
As the 50 Ferraristi participating in the event arrived, they attended a briefing session by the Corsa Pilotas, a team of experienced Ferrari driving instructors who came straight from Maranello, Italy. Following this, three hours of ongoing track activities commenced.
The diverse selection of Ferrari vehicles produced "a thrilling symphony of roaring engines throughout the evening, as Ferraristi had the opportunity to explore the absolute limits of the Prancing Horse automotive masterpieces, as they engaged in timed competitive laps around the track", the statement added.
