Ferrari to perform F1 car demo in Jerusalem
19 March 2013 – Giancarlo Fisichella will drive a Ferrari Formula 1 car on the streets of Jerusalem later this year, with the Italian set to represent the Maranello-based outfit in the first edition of the 'Jerusalem Peace Road Show', taking place from June 13-14.
Ferrari's appearance at the dedicated motoring event will follow on from a number of recent show car outings, including Moscow, Rotterdam, Doha and Rio de Janeiro.
"It’s great to have the chance to drive a Formula 1 car on the streets of a city that is as fascinating and full of history as Jerusalem," said Fisichella. "I’m sure the event will attract lots of people along the track – a genuine circuit that will wind up and down through the hills and that will at one point run next to the walls of the Old City."
The show has been supported by Kaspersky Lab, one of Ferrari's major sponsors and a company which specialises in antivirus and spyware computer software.
