NEWS STORY
30/08/2006

Michael Schumacher will take part in the final day of the 'Ferrari Racing Days 2006' event, that takes place this coming weekend at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

The event gets underway on Friday with the first timed practice for the penultimate round of the European Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophy. Currently leading the main class of the one-make series for the F430 is Frenchman Ange Barde, ahead of Ireland's Michael Cullen and the British driver, Ross Kaiser, while Germany's Dennis Huebner heads the classification in the Shell Cup for gentlemen drivers, from the Swiss driver Ettore Contini. Bjorn Grossmann (Germany) tops the table in the separate class for the 360 Modena Challenge, still eligible in the championship for one final year.

Also on track this weekend are single-seaters prepared by the Maranello F1 Clienti department who will do some parade runs with around sixty road cars taking part in a special regularity event.

The key moment comes on Sunday afternoon when Michael Schumacher will do a series of demonstration laps at the wheel of a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and an F2005. The Ferrari driver will also use the Nurburgring to debut his own personal FXX car, a product of the research and development programme of the same name, and part of the many elements that go to make up the 'Ferrari Racing Days 2006'.
