Ferrari Racing Days Suzuka 2012

21,700 Ferrari fans turned up to the first ever Japanese Ferrari Racing Days event, held three weekends ago at the Suzuka Circuit. Over 600 cars were on display at the event, accounting for five percent of Japan’s 12,000 Ferrari owners. The three day event saw the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Asia Pacific one-make series, F1 Clienti owners and Corse Clienti XX Programme customers take part in three days of Ferrari-themed festivities.

Luxury4Play recently published a set of photographs from the event, revealing the ‘Ferrari Only’ parking lots and the action on track. Both classic and modern Ferrari’s were on display. As you would expect from Japan, plenty of Ferrari F40 and F40 LM’s turned up, at least one Ferrari Enzo and another Ferrari F50 also turned up. The pictures also reveal at least seven Ferrari 599 GTO’s. Through the other photos we also spotted a Ferrari 458 Spyder, Ferrari 430 Scuderia and a Ferrari FF.

On the classic Ferrari side, we counted a 1951 Ferrari 340 America Vignale Spyder, a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France, a Ferrari 250 GT SWB and a Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. Taking pride of place in a Hublot-sponsored Concorsa d’Eleganza was a Ferrari 250 GTO, completely unrestored.

The other highlight of the weekend was the first outing for the Ferrari 599XX EVO, something you saw a video of recently. The 599XX Evo features improved chassis dynamics thanks to an active aerodynamic package, from which the active rear wing is most noticeable, integrated with the vehicles’ electronic control systems, and the adoption of new Pirelli tyres. Compared to the standard 599XX, the upgraded Prancing Horse weighs 35kg less and has slightly improved peak power of 750 horsepower.
