Ferrari Racing Days Brings Five Ferrari Programs to Laguna Seca

May 10, 2019 - Monterey, California, USA: Racers take to the track for the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

This coming May, Ferrari’s bringing all its racing program efforts to one location: WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca just outside of Salinas, CA.

For one weekend — May 17-19 — attendees will have a unique opportunity to see Ferrari’s Formula One Clienti cars, the XX Programme machines, the Ferrari Challenge North America series, The Sport Prototype Clienti and the Club Competition GT group all in one place: racing around the historic Laguna Seca track.

This is the only event in North America that will feature all five Ferrari programs in one place — and it’s only one of four events worldwide to do so.

Ferrari’s Formula One Clienti cars are the best of the best — these are the cars once driven by the world’s best in F1 competition, and they showcase the engineering and the talent that has kept Ferrari competitive in every F1 season since the beginning.

The XX Programme cars are limited prototypes — cars that run on the track with a close eye from the Ferrari data and engineering teams. The teams use the information gained from these machines in their design and development efforts for future vehicles.

Ferrari Challenge North America is built of owners and drivers, competing in wheel-to-wheel action as they push their Ferraris to the limit on the track. This is where clients show off their talents and their machines — and compete for top standing.

The Sport Prototipi Clienti will be highlighting the 499P Modificata — a prototype that won the Centenary 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is an exclusive track vehicle with a hybrid powertrain that was unveiled in 2023.

The Club Competizione GT is a group of GT cars that highlight the marque’s heritage — some of the most iconic of Ferrari’s GT machines from the last 30 years will be on track, showcasing Ferrari’s endurance racing prominence.
