For the last six years Ferrari has been treating hundreds of deserving children to an unforgettable day at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix. This year was no different…

Children were given high-speed laps of the circuit in the latest Ferrari California T

The famous circuit played host to a fleet of Ferrari California T cars and a group of disabled, disadvantaged and seriously ill children, together with their siblings.

Each was driven at speed around Silverstone’s Stowe circuit, experiencing the thrill of a Ferrari at full throttle.

Present at this year’s experience was chart-topping singer and former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, whose appearance undoubtedly added more excitement.

While each child took part in their high-speed passenger ride, their families enjoyed a programme of entertainment within the Stowe Complex, courtesy of event sponsors that included PlayStation and Lego. They also had the chance to mingle with celebrity attendees.

The event is held in conjunction with two charities. Rays of Sunshine grants wishes to children living with serious or life-limiting illnesses, while BEN, the automotive industry’s dedicated charity, provides care, financial help, emotional support and advice for those who work or have worked in the automotive industry and their dependant family.

“It is our honour and privilege to share the exhilaration of riding in a Ferrari with more truly deserving children,” commented Francesco Balli, regional manager for Ferrari North Europe. “We would like to express our gratitude to all the sponsors, some of which have been with us since the beginning of this incredible journey.”
