BAHRAIN International Circuit will host the first round of the 2019 season of Ferrari Challenge Europe, the most admired one-make car race series globally.
The event will take place from February 14 to 17. It will be attended by hundreds of Prancing Horse enthusiasts from across the Middle East and Europe who can experience what is a true Ferrari festival, the ultimate showcase of automotive excellence through a series of track activities producing a long symphony of roaring engines.
The famous one-make championship with a legacy dating back to 1993, places dream cars and very special customers on the most beautiful racetracks in the world, featuring to date over 1000 drivers globally, as well as many memorable races and thrilling performances.
The series of activities during the four action packed Ferrari Racing Days will also include the F1 Clienti and XX Programmes events that follow a separate calendar, occasionally overlapping with the dates of one of the three continental series of the Ferrari Challenge.
“The Ferrari Challenge takes place at some of the world’s most famous, state-of-the-art racing tracks and Bahrain International Circuit is certainly fit to be the first to feature in this season’s calendar,” said general manager at Ferrari Middle East Giorgio Turri.
The Ferrari Challenge is divided into three continental series: Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. The European 2019 season will commence at Bahrain International Circuit, before heading to Valencia, Spielberg, Le Mans, Nürburgring, Imola and the Finali Mondiali in Mugello.
This highly competitive racing series is sanctioned by the International Automobile Federation (FIA) and features four categories suited for different levels of driving, including Trofeo Pirelli, Trofeo Pirelli Am, Coppa Shell and Coppa Shell Am.
