Ferrari is planning to break the world record for a parade of its models, which currently stands at 490.

The plan is to get 1,000 Ferraris together at 18:00 on Saturday 15th September during Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone Circuit. So far 600 owners have signed up, so the hunt is on for 400 more.

Ferrari Racing Days is the only motor racing event in the UK where Ferrari fans will see the ultra-exclusive FXX and 599XX development cars on track, plus a wide range of historic Ferrari F1 cars from the F1 Clienti department, together with a schedule of races from the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Ferrari Club Challenge. There should also be a great turnout of Ferrari's rarest models, such as the F40.

Ferrari says that it will create a memorable spectacle – Silverstone turned Rosso Corsa. In fact there won't have been so many red cars in one place since the days of red Ford Sierras and Vauxhall Cavaliers in mid-1980s motorway service stations.

In addition, Ferrari will be donating £5 for every car entered into the world record attempt to BEN, the automotive industry's own charity (www.ben.org.uk).

Advanced weekend tickets are available for £15 per person, with children (aged 15 years and under) free of charge. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event for £15 per day and £20 for the weekend.
