Among the many activities that can be done at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello we suggest to try the two semi-professional driving simulators available to all those who want to experience the thrill of driving a Ferrari Formula 1 car on some of the World’s most famous circuits such as Monza, Barcelona, Silverstone, Imola, Nürbürgring, Zandvoort, SPA Francorchamps and Mugello.
The car lets the occupant feel the track surface, responds very realistically if it hits the rubbing strip, for instance, and, most importantly of all, is extraordinarily sensitive to both throttle and brake, delivering all the thrill of the speed only a car this sophisticated can deliver.
The Ferrari Museum in Maranello also offers visitors exclusive shuttle bus tours to the Fiorano track and along the Viale Enzo Ferrari boulevard in the factory complex.
A museum guide will also discuss the various characteristics of the Ferrari track where the Prancing Horse has carried out all its competition and road car tests since 1972. Likewise the Ferrari Campus, the heart of the complex where all the Prancing Horse cars are built. The buildings and facilities designed by world-leading architects of the likes of Renzo Piano, Massimiliano Fuksas, Jean Nouvelle, Marco Visconti and Luigi Sturchio are also fascinating. Equally interesting is the historic part of the factory which has been meticulously preserved, not least the factory entrance which dates back to 1947.
The Ferrari Museum in Maranello, together with the Modena racetrack, reserve their visitors the opportunity to really test their skills on a racing track. Just presenting your Ferrari Museum ticket at the Autodromo di Modena you can enjoy 15 minutes of exhilarating circuit time in your own car at a discounted price of just 35 euro.
All aspiring pilots will have a hostess and a professional driver who will give them a rundown on the track’s main features and the requisite safety measures. For all those who want to extend the excitement, it will be possible to request an extension of the laps for € 2.50 a minute.
For all those who are instead interested in discovering the Modena food and tradition there is the opportunity to buy the passport of the Discover Ferrari and Pavarotti Land, an all-day full immersion in history, taste and personalities of Modena and that includes: the entrance to the Ferrari Museums in both Maranello and Modena, the entrance to the Casa Museo Luciano Pavarotti museum, guided tours and tastings at least two of the participating businesses which represent the area’s superb reputation in traditional balsamic vinegar, Lambrusco wine and smoked meat production, and a connecting bus service with both Modena Railway Station and Bologna Bus Station.
