Florida Winter Tour to award Ferrari Driving Experience

Formula Kart Productions, Inc, in conjunction with Ferrari North America, is pleased to announce an unprecedented award for the 2009 Florida Winter Tour. One lucky 2009 FWT Rotax Masters competitor will receive a complimentary program seat in the Ferrari Driving Experience, Ferrari’s exclusive driving school based in Mont-Tremblant, Canada. The award is valued at $8,900 USD.

Ferrari North America’s Paul Montopoli: “We are excited to participate in the Florida Winter Tour. Ferrari North America has observed the tremendous success of this series among a broad group of North and South American motorsports enthusiasts. We believe that the high level of competition and commitment among the racers is commensurate with Ferrari’s passion and dedication to motorsports. As such, we believe that the Ferrari Driving Experience prize will further heighten participation and competition.”

FKP’s Bill Wright: “This is the kind of award I really appreciate. This Ferrari Driving Experience package is normally available exclusively to Ferrari owners, it has a very high monetary value, and it’s taking place at an incredible venue. Combine the exclusivity, the value and the location and we’ve put together a really special opportunity for FWT participants. Of course I’m personally very excited to add Ferrari North America to the list of valued FWT support partners, and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

Ferrari North America will contribute one complimentary Ferrari Driving Experience program (Basic level) to a 2009 FWT Rotax Masters competitor who pre-registers for and competes in all six 2009 FWT Rotax races - name selected by random among competitors at the final round who satisfy the “prize” requirements. The winner is entitled to register for and participate in a 2009 program. The winner is required to pay for transportation to and from the Hotel Quintessence in Mont Tremblant. All other program and transportation shuttle fees are covered.

The Ferrari Driving Experience is an exclusive two-day precision driving school that allows students to experience the performance of a Ferrari in the controlled environment of a race track. The premise of the program is to increase comfort and confidence behind the wheel of a Ferrari. Students drive the all-new Ferrari 430 Scuderia, 599 GTB Fiorano and the F430 on the panoramic and challenging Circuit Mont-Tremblant, a former Formula One venue. The combination of these cars, highly skilled professional instructors, track and resort locations makes the Ferrari Driving Experience an experience of a lifetime.
