Our 50th Anniversary Celebration Kicks off at Concorso Italiano

Our 50th Anniversary celebration - “Passione” has kicked off at Concorso Italiano 2012! One of the highlights will be the launch of our 599 Relay car as it begins a 20,000-mile journey across North America. This is a tour that will take it to every Region and Chapter and to both the Palm Springs and Elkhart Lake Annual Meets.

Check out the Launch

So please plan to join your friends in California this October and in Wisconsin in July 2013 as these two Meets bookend the relay journey and provide the framework for our yearlong celebration. To commemorate the occasion, every FCA member will receive a complimentary Jay Koka 50th Anniversary poster.

Many thanks go to member and patron Jim Taylor of TaylorMade Marine who will be the 599’s proud owner once the journey is complete. FCA has commissioned a high quality 1/43rd scale model of the 599 Relay Car in a limited edition of 500 pieces. These will be sold exclusively through the on-line Regalia store along with new 50th Anniversary shirts, caps, jackets and commemoratives; all coming soon, so please check it out!

Watch for further developments on the Ferrari Club of America Facebook page, follow the journey on Twitter, keep updated in Al DeLauro’s Capo’s Column in the Prancing Horse and check the News Bulletin for events in your city. Contact your Region Director
or Chapter President for information on local events, and, of course, volunteer to help. More important, get out and celebrate!

This relay is made possible in part by the generous support of Pirelli Tire, the Official Partner of the Ferrari Club of America, and our Supporting National Relay sponsors, Horseless Carriage, SkinzWraps, Schedoni and Miller Motorcars.
