  1. Sometimes it must be hard to be a motoring journalist - I'll bet they're not camping out each night... :LOL:

    Ferrari announces 32,000km tour of Americas
    Following its epic record-breaking journey around China last year in a pair of Ferrari 612 Scagliettis, Ferrari has announced that it has set its newest model, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, an even tougher challenge, a 32,000 kilometre crossing from South to North America

    On 24 August, two Ferrari 599 GTB Fioranos, will begin a long journey from Brazil that will take them through 16 countries and across 32,000 km to New York where they are scheduled to arrive on 17 November. A total of 50 different international journalists, each one representing the most important publications from all over the world, will take turns behind the wheels of the two sports cars, during the 15-stage, 84-day tour. The adventure will take them to the precarious mountain roads of the Andes and the dirt tracks of Central America, along a route so tough that they will experience the same conditions as the very earliest racing cars.
