A message from Al DeLauro, President, Ferrari Club of America...
"Ferrari Factory Tour Availability"
Now that we are officially recognized by the Ferrari factory as part of the world wide family of Ferrari Clubs, we will receive from time to time invitations to special functions and the like. This note describes one such offer.
As you may know, through your authorized Ferrari dealer under certain conditions you have always been able to request individual tours of the Ferrari factory in Maranello. Now, as part of the world wide family of official Ferrari Clubs we can also arrange to participate as part of a larger club group.
In that we are well into 2010, the calendar of available dates for such tours is largely full. However, the factory is still holding open tour availability for September 17th. for a sizable group of club members if they wish to participate. They can apparently accomodate up to 40 people (in two groups of 20, the first group tour starting at 2:30pm.)
In addition, should a group of our members wish to take such a tour on a different date the factory will try to accomodate us, abeit on a "space available" basis.
Please keep in mind that the factory conducts many such tours for clients and club members from many different countries, so only a limited number will be conducted in the english language.
If you are seeking individual tours they should still be arranged through your local Ferrari dealer as before, but if you would like to participate in this group tour please let us know so that we can relay your request to the factory.
These are new arrangements, and as such we will likely need to work out some procedural kinks, but bear with us as we work the issues; it will be well worth it.
To respond, please send your request for a group tour to Theresa Gilpatrick, [email protected]
. She will coordinate the requests and work with me to send them off to Ferrari. Again, this is just for larger groups. Individual and smaller family tour requests should be arranged through your local dealer.
