FERRARI ANNOUNCES ITS CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE SYDNEY HARBOUR CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE
Hard on the heels of the success of the inaugural Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance, powered by Ferrari, Ferrari Australasia has announced that it will continue to power the event in 2020 and beyond.
Herbert Appleroth, CEO of Ferrari Australasia, commented, “Ferrari is proud to be associated with the Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance. The 2019 event was a marvellous affair and moving forward we will continue to work together to provide a wonderful experience for Ferraristi and all those involved in the collector car culture alike. Now that Certificates of Authenticity issued by Ferrari Classiche are available in Australia this international class concours event completes the circle for those cars with enormous emotional and historic value.”
Not only did Ferrari provide the Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance with material assistance and logistics, it also produced the incredible Ferrari Monza SP1 brought all the way from the Factory in Maranello to Sydney for its first public showing in the Southern Hemisphere.
James Nicholls, Founder and Director of the Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance, said, “The support we received from Ferrari really enabled us to maximise the opportunity presented by our first event held in March at Lindesay, a National Trust property. It is fantastic for us to have the continued support of the world’s most recognised luxury brand.”
The first car already confirmed for the March 2020 Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance is a stunning Ferrari Testarossa, which was the poster car for the 1994 Northern Territory Cannonball Run. It is also expected that the Factory in Maranello will once again contribute an exciting addition to the proceedings, as it did this year with the superlative and jaw-dropping Monza SP1.
