“Everyone dreams of driving a Ferrari, it was my intent from the start.”– Enzo Ferrari
For most of us, the name Ferrari is representing a full history covered with glory, high-performance sports cars, and exceptional design. Thus, the Italian make, using the 24 Hours of Le Mans as a giant laboratory, will mark a long period of extraordinary competition in the Sarthe. 453 Ferrari will be engaged in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, registering 9 victories overall, including 6 consecutives in the 1960s.
In 2023, the new endurance regulations motivated the Scuderia Ferrari to make a comeback in the famous classic race at Le Mans, which Enzo Ferrari called the “Grand Prix of human and technical skills”.
From the first engagements of Ferrari in the 1950s, to the near future of the brand in Hypercar, the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum retraces the history of Ferrari prototypes in Sarthe: La Storia Di Le Mans.
