Food and drink will be provided and the Ferraris will be on display starting at noon at Central Park’s Dolcetto model. Raffle tickets will be on sale all day until the winners are drawn at 5 p.m. This special event brings together Cardel Racing’s Ferrari Challenge drivers and the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in support of the Payton Wright Foundation.

Raffle winners will be awarded fast-lap shotgun rides in a Ferrari 458 Challenge car on the Honda Grand Prix track Thursday, March 22 in St. Petersburg.
