Ferrari F1 Demo Draws Big Crowds In Jerusalem

Greg Emmerson
Jun 14, 2013

As part of the Jerusalem Peace Road Show, Ferrari took to the streets of Jerusalem to run a 1.7-mile course in front of 60,000 spectators.

The course ran through the inclined streets of the city and, although it was split into three separate sections, Giancarlo Fisichella was still able to reach 125mph in the Ferrari F60 F1 car. He did a total of ten runs and delighted the crowd with burnouts and simulated race starts.

"It was a fantastic feeling," said Giancarlo. "Driving in front of so many people in such a historic place was very exciting, as indeed was visiting the Old City this morning. It's been a truly memorable day for me."

The event was organized by the Jerusalem City Council and Ferrari was there at the request of Kaspersky Lab, one of the teams partners.

A second event on the following day saw three F430s and one 458 Challenge from the Ferrari Challenge run on the same course.

Scuderia Ferrari has committed to similar event already this year, previously staging demonstration runs in Rio de Janeiro and Warsaw, with another set for mid-July in Moscow.
