Montezemolo beaches a California at the Ferrari World Finals

At Ferrari’s World Finals in Valencia, Luca Montezemolo, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa manage to get a Ferrari California stuck in a Gravel Trap on a parade lap.

Every year the final round of the Italian, European and North American series of the Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophy and the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge are held at the Ferrari’s World Finals in Valencia, where Ferrari bring along various toys and members of the racing family along.

This year is no exception, with Ferrari California’s and Ferrari 458 Italia on show, while Luca Montezemolo, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa also attended and did a lap of the circuit in the new California.

Unfortunately for the trio it didn’t go as planned, as for some reason Luca Montezemolo, who was driving the California, decided to drive into the gravel pit, resulting in the car being beached very quickly.

Both Alonso and Massa attempted to free the stricken California, but to no avail. Fortunately for them another California turns up shortly after to give them a lift back.

The California beached actually made the car look a little better (not much) it appears lowered but still not very striking.
