The countdown to the launch of Ferrari’s new 2012 F1 car on February 3rd has begun and as with last year, you can watch the broadcast live from Maranello on a specially developed Scuderia Ferrari launch site.

If you’re a Ferrari Community member there are two further ways to get involved.

Earlier in the day, on Friday 3 February 2012, an exclusive Ferrari Passion Day will be held at the Fiorano track where 30 members of the Community will be able to see the new F1 2012 car up close. The event will be joined by drivers Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso, together with team principal Stefano Domenicali.

Community members who join the Passion Day will be able to post their first impressions live at the presentation ceremony later in the evening.

If you miss this opportunity, there’s a further chance to gain access to Ferrari’s new car and it’s drivers. A prize draw open to Premium Community members is offering tickets for two people to join pre-season testing in Barcelona from 29 February to 1 March 2012.

The prize includes flights, hotels, lunch with the Scuderia team and a guaranteed grin permanently affixed to your face. If you’re interested, make sure you sign up as a premium member before 12 February 2012, then visit the competition page to enter.
