Scuderia Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen will make history at Daytona International Speedway during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali on Dec. 1-4.
Both Vettel and Räikkönen will drive in the Formula 1 exhibition during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali, the first time in the history of Daytona International Speedway that Formula 1 cars have been on track. Vettel and Räikkönen will participate in the show that will feature demonstrations of pit stops, thrilling accelerations and fast laps around the Speedway’s 3.56-mile road course.
The Ferrari Finali Mondiali, the four-day event that is being staged in North America for the first time, will bring together competitors from the European, North American and Asia Pacific series of the Ferrari Challenge for a battle for the World Championship in their Ferrari 458 Challenge EVOs. The Ferrari Finali Mondiali has been previously held in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, Spain and Italy. The weekend also includes the display and running of historic Formula 1 cars and Ferrari’s exclusive XX Programmes.
The Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 show is scheduled for the final day of the Ferrari Finali Mondiali. Scuderia Ferrari has been competing in Formula 1 since 1950, the first year of the world championship. It has raced in 927 Grand Prixs, winning 224 and its trophy case displays 16 manufacturers’ titles and 15 drivers’ titles – a haul that makes Scuderia the winningest team in the history of the sport.
Vettel, a native of Germany, is a four-time Formula 1 World Champion with 42 victories. Räikkönen, a Finnish driver, was the 2007 Formula 1 World Champion and owns 20 victories.

Is this a precursor to the possibility that NASCAR, Brian France and his sister Lias France-Krnnedy, who runs ISC, are trying to get a Formula 1 race at the Dayrtona International Speedway in the near future, now that they have completed their revamping of the grandstands into a first class venue?
Stay tuned race fans!
