World's largest Ferrari parade held at Silverstone [video]

964 vehicles took part in the event

The world's largest Ferrari parade has been held at the Silverstone Circuit.

The event won't be confirmed as a Guinness World Record until next week, but Ferrari says 964 vehicles took part in the parade. This easily surpasses the previous record of 490 cars which drove around Japan's Fuji Speedway Circuit in 2008.

The parade was lead by Formula One driver Felipe Massa who drove 458 Spider and said "It was a really unforgettable experience," commented the Scuderia Ferrari race driver, against a backdrop of the 800 cars. It's a great honor for me to be here for such a special event, with so many cars all brought together on one race track, which produced an unprecedented spectacle for all Prancing Horse fans."

Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone Felipe Massa leads a record parade

Silverstone, 15 September - Although it has not yet been officially ratified as a Guinness World Record, there's no doubt that today, a new world record was established for the biggest parade of Ferraris ever organised. 964 Ferraris took to the Silverstone circuit to beat the previous record of 490 cars dating back to 2008 at Japan's Fuji Speedway Circuit.

Felipe Massa was the guest of honour, leading the parade at the wheel of a 458 Spider. "It was a really unforgettable experience," commented the Scuderia Ferrari race driver, against a backdrop of the 800 cars. It's a great honour for me to be here for such a special event, with so many cars all brought together on one race track, which produced an unprecedented spectacle for all Prancing Horse fans."

It was a truly memorable scene with over 900 Ferraris from all over the UK and further afield at Silverstone circuit as part of the Ferrari Racing Days. This ambitious attempt was successful in no small part thanks to the cooperation of the British Ferrari Owners Club and it was all in a good cause, as Ferrari donated £5 for every car in the parade to BEN, a British charity that supports employees from the motor industry and their family.

Also taking part in the parade was Marc Gene, who is attending the event as a special coach for drivers taking part in the F1 Clienti programmes. There was also an opportunity for spectators to admire the entire range of Ferrari cars, including the very latest model the F12 berlinetta, the most powerful road car every built by the Maranello marque.

All the necessary conditions were met for a world record to be ratified and put before the Guinness World Records Limited Commission, who will confirm the record by the end of next week.

Wait. Was this a charity event? And if so, 964 Ferrari owners could only pony up (no pun intended) 4820 GBP?
