Burton Upon Trent, September 6, 2012 – Pirelli is running a competition through its social media sites offering individuals the chance to win 40 pairs of tickets to the annual Ferrari Racing Days event that encompasses rounds of both the European Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli series and the Pirelli Ferrari Open.

Pirelli is the exclusive tyre supplier to the two highly-successful race championships that will take place at Silverstone race circuit next weekend (14-16 September). This season has welcomed the Ferrari F355, 360 and 430 onto the grid and no less than 30 Pirelli Ferrari Open cars will be present on the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit next week.

The competition is currently running on the company’s official social media channels and will close at 1pm on Friday 7 September.

“We have been running this competition on our social media networks since Monday and we’ve have had a fantastic initial response,” explained Catherine Kirk, Pirelli UK’s Trade and Consumer Marketing Manager.

“To be able to give away 40 pairs of general admission tickets is very promising as it greatly increases the chances of any of our fans and customers who enter. Next weekend will be packed full of Ferrari entertainment from start to finish and the cars are certain to put the Pirelli rubber through its paces at Britain’s legendary race circuit.”
