Luca di Montezemolo will wave the flag to start the 2009 Le Mans race. The ACO President Jean-Claude Plassart invited Luca to start the race to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first of Ferrari’s nine victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to start a race that has made motor racing history and has such strong links with Ferrari,” said di Montezemolo. “Our Scuderia has delivered some unforgettable achievements on this circuit.”
“The Le Mans 24-hour race is synonymous with technologically-advanced sporting competition and has always been a focus of great attention on our part.”
