As title suggests i've just received an invitation from my dealer to a two day F8 Tributo and Spider driving event in Maranello Italy..I've booked for the May 2020 slot and wondering if someone on here has already done it..First time i've had this invitation so not really sure what's involved or worth doing..All meals and accommodation are included otherwise i'd have passed being a meanie..

Is there a cost attached or FOC, not including the travel there and back of course.

I've also had one but don't want to embarrass myself.

Plus, as places are limited I guess I would get a sorry its fully booked, due to never having bought a car from them.

I just came back from the SF1000 F1 car launch and we drove the F8 at Fiorano the next day.

Ferrari events are very relaxed and whats not to like about tracking an F8!

What a fantastic opportunity! If you've never bought a car from them, how do you get on the radar? I guess I'm too addicted to the classics to be noticed...

I got an invite to a Ferrari evening at local dealer in the past even though never owned a Ferrari, wouldn't mind an invite to this!!

Was over in Maranello last year loved it.

I went to the Lusso winter event last year and it was great - Ferrari is very good at organising client events imo

Well, looks like I won't be seeing you there in May. Its oversubscribed.

Haven't been totaly blown off though. They have offered me another event later in the year which will also include an F8 Spider test drive.

Just had the same email allowing me the option of the later date in June or July..Not sure i can make the later date due to existing commitments..Will phone them tomorrow for further clarification.

If your event is on May 11th or 12th ,you should get to not too far away Brescia for the 13th ,a small event called the Mille Miglia starts

on that date.
