Brands Hatch Circuit
Brands Hatch will host a new Festival Italia event on Sunday 14 August, celebrating the emotion and beauty of one of Europe’s most exciting motoring nations with themed racing, demonstrations, displays and plenty of off-track attractions.
Italy’s long racing heritage will be celebrated by an exciting and diverse race programme, which will include two races for the stunning machines in the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic series. The Prancing Horse is the Mediterranean nation’s most enduring icon, and it will be a wonderful sight to see a full field of Italian stallions galloping around the world-famous Brands Hatch Indy circuit.
Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic will star racing examples of everything from the 308 of the ’70s to modern classics such as the 355 of the ’90s. There will be opportunities for spectators to get up close to these cars and soak up the event’s unique atmosphere during a free pre-race grid walk.
Special cars from Italy’s evocative motor racing past will star too, with a number of Grand Prix cars taking to the track in demonstration runs, whilst other unique machines including Ferrari F40s and Lancia Stratoses will appear too.
Off-track highlights will include car displays starring cars from many of Italy’s most iconic manufacturers, plus a Piazza in Italia shopping market. The event will also benefit from official involvement from the Ferrari Owners’ Club and Auto Italia Magazine.
