    Okay, I know short notice, and we all have tons of other things to do, but is anyone interested in going to the F1 Test Day at Fiorano on May 13th?

    What’s included (copied from webpage):

    You’ll get to spend a whole day in close contact with the Ferrari drivers and the Test Team as they tune the single-seater, giving you firsthand experience of what the atmosphere is like just before our Formula 1 races. We will also be giving you a good look at the new F1 Clienti base which is where the former Ferrari Formula 1 cars are maintained and prepared for selling on at the end of their competitive careers.

    PROGRAMME
    12th of May 2004

    4pm – 6pm Arrival at the Fini Hotel (Modena)
    6:30pm Welcome cocktail
    7:30pm Depart for the Fini Restaurant by bus
    8pm Gala dinner with Ferrari staff

    13th of May 2004

    7am – 9:30am Breakfast at the Hotel
    9:30am Depart for the Fiorano track by bus
    10am Arrival at the track
    10:30am Welcome coffee
    10:45am Technical briefing
    11:30am Start of visits to the pits
    1pm Lunch at the track; meeting and pictures with the driver
    2:45pm Galleria Ferrari; Factory visit
    4:15pm Return to the track
    5pm End of the day

    It sounds very tempting. Anyone have any experience with this?

Those who wish to take part in the event with a guest, but would rather stay in two separate rooms need to purchase two single packages. The room, whether single or double, will be booked only for the night of 12/05/04, and the guests will have to clear the room when leaving for the circuit on 13/05/04.

    2) For the clients who will come with their own Ferrari, it will be possible to set up a reserved parking area. In order to organise the service, we invite the clients who are going to use their own Ferrari to provide the relevant information by writing to customerservice
    owners.ferrari.com or a fax to the number +39 0536 949895 (F.A.O. Customer Service)** The transfers from the hotel to the restaurant, from the hotel to the circuit and return, will be by coach.

    4)Once the client receives confirmation of availability, it will no longer be possible to cancel the order placed or request a refund.
    5)The test sessions are subject to the requirements/needs of the Team, who may cancel and/or suspend the session at anytime.
    6)The access to the pits will be regulated by the Team and arranged in small groups, always accompanied by the Ferrari staff.
    7)Cancellation: - By cancellation it is meant the complete cancellation of the event in the days prior to it. Ferrari reserves the right to cancel the event anytime, giving however adequate notice to the participants. - Should Ferrari be obliged to cancel the event, the entire cost of the package will be refunded, except for any personal costs sustained by the purchaser (travelling expenses, etc). Interruption: - By interruption it is meant the suspension or the complete termination of the test session during the day. Ferrari reserves the unquestionable right to interrupt or suspend the test session anytime for serious technical reasons. - Should the Team suspend the test session, no refund will be made (in case there is no activity on the track, other activities will be organised, such as private tours of the pits, meeting with the mechanics, etc.)
    8)Only clients who have subscribed to the package are allowed inside the track.

    The way I look at is, how much would you be willing to pay now (for all of you basketball fans out there) to see Michael, Scotty, etc. in a day of practice back in the hay day of the Bulls?

    I've been at Modano as not far from Milano when I visit there for business. I really enjoy shopping there. You get almost 10% back at the airport for tax, too. Make you feel like you are saving a lot!

    Have great time Nick!

    The date is middle of the week, so I don't think I can make it. When is the deadline for applying?

    Granted my schedule allows, yes, I am interested very much.

    I think there could be some F-chat event on that weekend, too in NJ.
