    The FOC GB’s special parade over the Forth Road Bridge — which saw the club visit Knockhill for laps of the circuit — included cars from Graypaul Edinburgh, the official Ferrari Dealer for Scotland.

    In addition, there were several very exclusive models such as the Limited Series LaFerrari and F12tdf, and a number of historic models, such as the 330 GT, 246 Dino and 308 GTB.

    The Forth Road Bridge was closed from 08:00-08:11 to allow the parade to pass from Edinburgh to Fife, heading north for the FOC GB track day at Knockhill.

    The event also pre-empts the official Ferrari 70th Anniversary UK Tour which takes place from June to September at various locations around the country, including a visit to Edinburgh on August 8.

    The LaFerrari Aperta will headline Ferrari’s presence at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from June 29 to July 2, leading a parade of the most iconic road and racing Ferraris from the company’s past 70 years during each day of the event.

    Ferrari will also have a full display of the current product range at the event, including the new GTC4Lusso which makes its dynamic UK debut at the event.

    The Ferrari 70th Anniversary UK Tour then continues with the LaFerrari Aperta visiting every official Ferrari Dealer in the UK during July and August.

    The final event on the LaFerrari Aperta’s UK Tour will be Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone, from September 22-24, where the car will once again lead a parade of iconic and historic Ferrari cars around the British GP circuit.

    Ferrari Racing Days is the UK round of the Ferrari Challenge European Series, in which the 458 Challenge makes its final appearance alongside the 488 Challenge which will run solus in the Ferrari Challenge in 2018.
