Fisi 'honoured' to take in Jerusalem Peace Road Show
13 June 2013 – Ferrari test driver Giancarlo Fisichella has said it is a ‘great honour’ for him to take part in the first Jerusalem Peace Road Show this week. The event will run for two days, starting today, with the Italian due to demo a Ferrari F60, the Scuderia’s 2009 F1 car, on the 2.8 km course.
Marussia official test and reserve driver, Rodolfo Gonzalez was also due to attend the event, along with former F1 racer, Vitantonio Liuzzi and two-time World Superbike Champion, Max Biaggi.
“It’s a great honour for me to be here and to drive a Ferrari Formula 1 car in what is such a historic motor sport event in Israel,” Fisichella said. “Being behind the wheel of a technological jewel like the F60, in a such a historic venue, is an incredible combination and I wish to thank first of all the Jerusalem City Council and Kaspersky Lab, for making it possible.”
“I plan on coming back here now with my family to visit the city in a more leisurely fashion,” he added.
“We had a guide who happened to be from Rome, like me and he took us through the streets [of the Old City today] explaining everything we saw. I have often heard about Jerusalem and its holy sites, but to see them at first hand is a special feeling, which could not be repeated elsewhere.”
