Words – Ben Pulman
THE FIORANO CIRCUIT IS USED TO PLAYING HOST TO THE LATEST FERRARI ROAD CARS, AND TO THE SCUDERIA’S FORMULA 1 DRIVERS.
But Fiorano recently welcomed an unusual pairing, that of Charles Leclerc and a classic Ferrari 275 GTB.
‘At Ferrari, we ask our drivers to assess the restorations performed by the Classiche Department in order to be sure they match with the expectations of our customers – and the Formula 1 drivers are the best testers in the world,’ explains Andrea Modena, Head of Ferrari Classiche.
‘As part of Ferrari, all of the team within Ferrari Classiche are always immensely proud to give our drivers the opportunity to test these incredible cars. It was an honour and joy to see Charles at the wheel of this special 275 GTB.’
