Ferrari Club Annual Experience
The Ferrari Club of America, by far the largest Ferrari club in the world with some 7,000 members, holds an annual event that moves to different places across the country, but somehow has never been in Arizona—until now. The 2019 Ferrari Club Annual Experience will be held in Scottsdale Nov. 6-11, with a decidedly Western theme echoed in the logo, Horsepower and Horses.
More than 600 attendees have already registered, making this the second-largest gathering ever held.
The organizers have arranged a number of individual activities, including drives and rallies to places such as Prescott, Payson and Show Low, track days at the new APEX Racetrack in Maricopa, a judged Concours and numerous social and dining functions.
You can count on seeing lots of Ferraris all week, but one event is open and even free to the public—the Concours, which is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 7 at the Scottsdale Sports Complex at the corner of Hayden and Princess.
