Slight's last outing on four wheels at Donington Park in a Peugeot 406 Coupé was a spectacular one, leading the Feature race for some seven laps in front of 15,000 people for rounds eleven and twelve of the BTCC.

On his Ferrari drive this weekend Slight commented; " I am very proud to be invited by Ferrari UK to the Ferrari Festival. It's a bonus that I get to drive one of their awesome new cars as well."
