Mont-Tremblant, June 29, 2003 -- The FCA (Ferrari Club of America), in collaboration with Club Ferrari Quebec, organized a rally in the Mont-Tremblant region, ending at the Circuit. No fewer than 25 Ferraris and 2 Maseratis were on display at the centre of the track where the public could admire these impressive vehicles up close and talk with their owners. After the exhibition, FCA members were able to do a few laps around the track. These same members will be at the Circuit Mont-Tremblant for a 2-day training course.
In order to get the competitive juices flowing, the two races of the afternoon were Regularity challenges. Each driver, accompanied by a co-pilot, tried to match 2 of the laps to their first lap. The cup was awarded to the team that came closest to their initial time. This is a friendly challenge that even slower cars can win. John Shirley and his co-pilot Dennison are experts in this type of race, but it was not their lucky day and they finished seventh. Todd Morici took the cup at the wheel of his magnificent twelve-cylinder 521 BB/LM.
One of the most remarkable cars on the track this weekend was undoubtedly Chuck Wegner's Ferrari 196 SP, one of the first Ferraris to put the motor behind the driver. This exceptional Ferrari, dating from 1961, was found forty years later in a barn in Italy. <pre> RESULTS
