June 22,2022, Maranello– The spectacular lighting show at the Fiorano Circuit, was certified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORD as “The largest LED-illuminated circuit”. To mark the 50th anniversary of the Fiorano Circuit , Ferrari Museum in Maranello presented a exhibition dedicated to the history of the famous track.
The exhibition features the 50 years history of activity at the circuit through a collection of archive images and video content, in keeping with the wishes of Enzo Ferrari to the activities organised today.
At the exhibition, one will be able to watch the video of the lighting show installed at the Fiorano circuit marking 75 years since the Maranello-based company was founded. The circuit was transformed into a gigantic LED wall, made up of 172,000 lights and 1,039,280 LED points, 89 km of dynamic LED strings making up a total of 112.958,27 square metres. for an amazing show dedicated to Enzo and the passion he passed on to the great Ferrari Community.
“Every single section of circuit should be able to put the dynamic behaviour of the car to the test in such a way as to make it easy to identify each car’s problems. From now on, I don’t want any Ferrari to take to the track or enter range production without passing the Fiorano test with flying colours.” Enzo Ferrari
As well as the historical section on the most important milestones in the company’s 50-year history, the exhibition presents two cars with a particular significance to the circuit:
Ferrari 3.2 Mondial Cabriolet
The car was at the centre of the famous visit that Pope John Paul II made to Maranello in 1988, which also saw him make a guest appearance at the Fiorano circuit. The Pope met Enzo Ferrari and granted his presence in a memorable event that took place on the Fiorano Circuit. The Pope allowed himself – a specific request – a few laps of the track in the Ferrari 3.2 Mondial Cabriolet, driven by the Founder’s son, Piero Ferrari. The very same car is on display for the occasion.
Ferrari 150 LM
A special atmosphere was generated around the Maranello “prototypes” from the very beginning: they identified the inventive brilliance of the manufacturer, its mystery, and its spectacular results. In order to connect the 50th anniversary of the Fiorano Circuit with the vast quantity of development tests – always strictly private – the 2014 Ferrari 150 LM is present. This “test bench” is based on the LaFerrari, the top-performing car at the time, seeking to improve assemblies, components and aerodynamics, with advanced solutions tied to the data acquired in the course of extensive experience on the home track.
