Day Five (Thursday, May 23): South of France
Members of the Ferrari Owners Club of Minnesota are invited to join the 2024 edition of the Maranello to Monaco Action Tour
Day One (Sunday, May 19): Bologna
Don't miss "a trip that will be talked about for years" as we head back to Europe in May 2024 to repeat our adventure from 2023. This is your chance to experience the factories of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani and Ducati as well as the Monaco Grand Prix with your fellow club members.
After departing the US on Saturday, May 18, the group will arrive in Bologna on Sunday for a calm day to allow everyone to adapt to the time zone change and casually explore the city without a set schedule. Bologna is known for it's architecture, great food and culture and is a fantastic spot to be based for the first phase of our trip.
Day Two (Monday, May 20): Lamborghini & Ducati
Day Four (Wednesday, May 22): Pagani, Nice
Day four starts with a visit to Pagani for a factory and museum tour. The machinery produced by Pagani is second to none in the "art on wheels" category and we'll get up close and personal with some of the most iconic cars created in this millennium. After our time is up at Pagani, we will make the trek to Nice, France for the second part of our trip.
This will be another low-stress day in the South of France and we will have another easy-going plan for those that want to spend time with the larger group while those that want to explore the region on their own are free to do so.
Our first day in Monaco will be highlighted by Formula 1 qualifying late in the afternoon. This is the most intense session of the season as qualifying first in Monaco gives the driver a better chance at winning the race than at any other track on the calendar. Other on track action will likely include Formula 2 and Formula 3 races.
Day Seven (Saturday, May 25): F1 Qualifying
The Monaco Grand Prix is the Crown Jewel of Formula One calendar and it's the race every every driver dreams of winning. Will Max Verstappen defend his 2023 win or will Ferrari take it's first victory in the principality since 2017? Join us to find out!
Day Eight (Sunday, May 26): Race Day!
The 2024 adventure comes to a close after the Monaco GP and for those not choosing to extend their stay in Europe, this will be time to head home, full of memories of great experiences and hopefully working on plans to join the next FOC-MN trip, the F1 season finale in Abu Dhabi in December, 2024.
Day Nine (Monday, May 27): Homeward Bound
Day Three (Tuesday, May 21): FERRARI!
Today is all about Ferrari. We will spend time at the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, and most importantly, take a behind the scenes tour of the Ferrari factory and race departments. If we're lucky, we may even get a chance to see some cars testing on the track at Fiorano during our tour.
Our first full day in Italy will bring us to Lamborghini and Ducati for factory & museum tours. The cars and motorcycles that are on display in each museum are remarkable and getting to see behind the scenes of how these incredible machines are made is a great way to get the trip started.
One request after the 2023 trip was to have more time in the South of France. We will have a relaxed plan for the group and encourage people to venture out on their own. Great locations like Antibes and Èze are just a train ride away from Nice. There will also likely be some people venturing down to Cannes to join the stars at the annual Cannes Film Festival.
Day Six (Friday, May 24): South of France
