CONCORSO FERRARI & FRIENDS
June 23, 2019
LaSalle Road, West Hartford, CT
10 am – 3 pm
Concorso Ferrari & Friends was created by a group of owners who wanted to use their exotic automobiles to put smiles on the faces of patients at Connecticut Children’s. Now in its 19th year, Concorso Ferrari & Friends is the signature automobile event for Southern New England. It celebrates all makes and models of Italian automobiles—from vintage Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Lamborghinis to the supercars of Ferrari, Pagani and Maserati—while raising awareness and critical funding to support Connecticut Children’s.

“If you can dream it, you can do it”
– Enzo Ferrari
Enzo Ferrari watched his first race when he was ten years old in Bologna (won by Felice Nazzaro) and immediately fell in love with racing. After serving in World War Ι and recovering from a serious illness, Ferrari started living his dream. In 1919 he was hired as a test driver for Costruzioni Mecanniche Nazionali. In the same year he debuted as a racing driver in a hill climb race, and by 1924 he earned his fame by winning the Coppa Acerbo driving an Alfa Romeo RL. A child’s dream came true, and the Ferrari name was put on the map.
