    I was at the Ferrari Racing Days at the Nürburgring the last weekend and have seen that some young car enthusiasts got a ride as a passenger in a FXX K/EVO etc.. How is that possible? Is there a program from Ferrari to book rides for money? Maybe some of the XX-program drivers/owners can answer my question?

    Here is one example: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwAWlDRgha8/

    Thank you in advance!

    Looks like a son of, or son of a friend of one of the fxx clients judging by that IG page. I seriously doubt anyone with the cash to call themselves an fxx client can be arsed selling rides!

    The owner can invite people to ride with them. Most of the time they bring a friend or family member. The passenger goes to a table setup by Ferrari to get a helmet and race suit and then they jump in the car with the owner. I think passengers must be 18 and the owner has to get them set up for the ride using a special card to get the helmet and race suit.

    That is all correct. The passenger also needs to sign a waiver.

    In this particular instance, that's a determined and unhesitant "fan" who shows up at Corse Clienti events and tries his luck persuading drivers for rides. Apparently that works well enough for him.

    People know the right people. A friend of mine is close to an owner here in Tx and got very up close with his example at COTA when the Evo. package debuted.

    Sure looks like a fun ride. He wasn't babying it either.
