We’re very pleased to announce that the next instalment of our increasingly popular Sunday Services will be taking place at the
Ferrari Racing Days
event at Silverstone on Sunday September 16. We’ll be opening the doors to 700 lucky PHers who’ll be helping us repeat our traditional format (lots of cars, good banter, pork themed breakfast) but as guests of Ferrari and with a rather enticing sounding backdrop of all day on track Ferrari action.
Who wouldn't want to watch a field of 458s race?
Ferrari Racing Days will be at Silverstone over the weekend of September 15-16, and on Sunday the you’ll be able to see a packed programme of track activities including:
- A round of the 2012 European Ferrari Challenge Trofeo series
- The superb FXX and 599XX development programmes
- Modern F1 cars from Ferrari's F1 Clienti programme.
- Ferrari Club Challenge racing
The entry list makes for enticing reading. 16 599xxs will be running, there are four of the amazing Enzo based FXX, and the list of recent F1 cars includes Raikkonen's F2008, and Schumacher cars from '98 to 2008.
Off track, the race paddock at Silverstone’s impressive new Wing building will be open to spectators. Featuring other Ferrari car displays, a Ferrari store, F1 simulator and children’s entertainment zone, and there’ll be a display of Ferrari owners’ cars at the Stowe circuit in addition to all the usual broad range of vehicles you can see at a Sunday Service.

We’ll be hosting our Sunday service parking area near to the old pit and paddocks, from where shuttle buses will be available to take you down to the Wing. Alternatively you can watch the action from one of the many viewing areas nearby.
The best news? Even though tickets are £10 per head to the general public, we have room for 700 cars, assuming two people per car, absolutely free! So that's 1400 PHers enjoying a great day out courtesy of Ferrari. Under 15s will not need a ticket, so bring your wife and kids by all means.
Plus, Ferrari are giving every PHer a copy of the event programme, worth £5, with your tickets (1 per car) thus liberating a further £5 to be spent on pork based breakfasts and/or Ferrari memorabilia.
We think that this has the potential to be our best Sunday Service ever, and we’ve said that about several in the past. Since Ferrari are being so generous to PHers, we’re going to try and give something back. On the gate when we check you in will be representatives from Mission Motorsport, run by PHer and all round good bloke Jim Cameron. Mission
Enzo-derived FXX will also be on show
Motorsport’s aim is to use Motorsport to help with the rehabilitation of injured servicemen and women. Dan and I shared a car to Le Mans with a couple of their chaps, the cause is a great one and we’d encourage you to dig deep on the gate and chuck some change in their buckets. Entirely voluntarily of course.
So what next? Sign up now on our calendar, and we’ll be in touch with more details in due course. Each place on the calendar entitles you to one car and two adults, plus any under 15s you'd like to bring with you. Hurry - we get the feeling that this one is going to fill up faster than anything we’ve done yet.
