Preston Street BIA Ferrari Demo Zone

"Get your speed on" and stretch your Ferrari's legs in this safe, short course in front of thousands of Ferrari fans and feel the enthusiasm of the 'tifosi' gathered on the bleachers lining the entire route.

Taking place in an enclosed, three block section of Carling Avenue, this venue will provide an excellent 'road side' opportunity for visitors to hear and see Ferrari's in their natural habitat: in motion.

Access will be controlled from the staging area in the empty lot at the end of Sidney Street (last street before Carling Avenue off Preston Street).

We encourage all Ferrari's to participate in the Demo Zone and do two laps (at your comfortable speed)

** Festival registrants and invited guests only
