The awards ceremony for the winners of the European and North American series of the Ferrari Challenge took place on Saturday evening after the victors were decided in the final round of the season at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

Secondly, the evening also included the awards to the drivers who won titles in the season’s main Prancing Horse closed-wheel car championships. Enrico Galliera, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer, and Antonello Coletta, Head of Attività Sportive GT, attended the ceremony.

During the event, the dealers with the most points in the various national and continental series of the Prancing Horse one-make series received their respective Dealer Cups: Baron Motorsport (Ferrari Challenge Europe), Ferrari of Central Florida (Ferrari Challenge North America) and Graypaul Birmingham (Ferrari Challenge UK).
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - digital-analog revolution in the interior
"In the interior of the S-Class, modern luxury reaches the next level. The designers have created a feel-good ambience with lounge character, characterized by elegance, high quality and lightness. With its new architecture, modern surface design and ergonomic display arrangement, the instrument panel is a highlight. The goal and aspiration of the Mercedes-Benz interior designers was to harmonize digital and analog luxury in the interior. An S-Class has always been a pleasant place to travel and a relaxed place to work. With the new generation, the interior has fully developed into a "third place", a refuge between home and the workplace. Almost all the comfort dimensions of both short- and long-wheelbase S-Class variants have been improved, both in the front and rear seats. The feeling of spaciousness is correspondingly generous."
