Ferrari Finali Mondiali Begins at Mugello

Three North American Titles Still to Be Decided in Italy


The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello (Mugello Circuit) in Florence, Italy, hosts the Ferrari Finali Mondiali, which kicked off Wednesday with the first practice and qualifying sessions for the drivers in the Prancing Horse one-make series. Besides the final action in the Europe and North America Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli series, the event includes the most eagerly awaited part of the Finali Mondiali on Sunday, with the crowning of the world champions of the four classes in the Maranello manufacturer’s championship.


The Program. Everything is still to play for in the Ferrari Challenge Europe’s last two races on Thursday and Friday when 64 Ferrari 488 Challenge Evos will be on the track. The Trofeo Pirelli Am and the Coppa Shell winners were already crowned in the Spa-Francorchamps round, while only the Trofeo Pirelli championship was settled in the North American series, with three out of four titles still in the balance.

The event also features a range of other activities, including the Club Challenge, the F1 Clienti with the single-seaters that competed with Scuderia Ferrari from the 1970s to the hybrid era, the XX Programme and its non-road-legal cars, and the cars of Club Competizioni GT. Everything culminates with the Ferrari Show on Sunday, when the 499P, the Hypercar that captured an extraordinary victory in June at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will also be on show.

Ferrari Challenge North America. The last race in the series, with 30 cars on the grid, will be a victory parade for Mark Kurzejewski (Ferrari of Beverly Hills), who has already clinched the Trofeo Pirelli title on the back of six wins out of 12 races and several podiums. However, the other classes are still open.  In the Trofeo Pirelli Am, Justin Rothberg (Ferrari of Palm Beach) starts favorite with a 31-point lead over Tony Davis (Continental AutoSports).

In Coppa Shell, Cameron Root (Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo) tops the standings after his victory at Road America, 17 points ahead of David Voronin (Foreign Cars Italia) in second place. Sureel Chokski (Ferrari of Denver), who lags 22 points behind the leader, is also back in the running.

Three drivers are also still in with a chance of the Coppa Shell Am title: Lisa Clark (Ferrari Beverly Hills), who has already secured the Coppa Ladies, is now 19 points ahead of Bruce Cleveland (Ferrari Silicon Valley).

Race 1 was scheduled for Thursday morning U.S. time, with Race 2 on Friday morning.


Finali Mondiali. With the conclusion of the two regional series, all eyes will turn to the Finali Mondiali, where the four 2023 class champions will be crowned on Sunday morning. For the first time, a Superpole on Saturday will decide the starting grid. It will be open to the six fastest drivers in each category in the morning’s qualifying sessions.

Web Programming. The races, including the Finali Mondiali on Sunday and the Superpole on Saturday, will be broadcast on the live.ferrari.com page and the official Ferrari channel on YouTube with commentary in English.
