Budapest, a historic city crammed with beautiful buildings is, for a third year, hosting the Nagy Futam event which sees all sorts of race cars parade along its streets. They range from Formula 1 to NASCAR, while the Ferrari Challenge series is also represented by the splendid 458 Challenge EVO.
There will also be an air display so the spectators will be able to turn their gaze skywards as well as down the wide boulevards of the Hungarian capital. Among those supporting the event is Scuderia Ferrari sponsor, Kaspersky Lab and the team will be running Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of an F10, the car that took the Maranello marque to second place in the 2010 World Championship.
The Finn will show off the F10 and its glorious 2.4 litre “056” V8 engine, in an environment where the crowd can get much closer to the cars than they can at an actual Grand Prix. Indeed, the Scuderia is happy to take part in show runs like this, which bring motorsport to the heart of major cities and closer to the public. In fact, this won’t be Ferrari’s only appearance in Budapest this year.
This show on 1st May is a sort of taster for fans and enthusiasts, prior to the Ferrari Racing Days event, which takes place at the Hungaroring circuit from 26 to 28 June, a month prior to the Formula 1 Grand Prix. The weekend provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of the Maranello marque, featuring the third round of the European Ferrari Challenge, split between the Trofeo Pirelli and the Coppa Shell races. Also, in collaboration with Shell, Sebastian Vettel will be on hand to drive a Formula 1 car.
