Two mid-1990s Ferrari Formula One cars collided during a Corse Clienti race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, sustaining heavy damage. I’ve got the tissues, you can crank up the volume. Let us grieve over the damage to these two truly fantastic sounding cars together.
The crash happened during Ferrari Racing Days at Homestead, where multiple Ferrari racing groups including Ferrari Challenge and Corse Clienti meet in one big weekend of awesome, according to Fox Sports.
Ferrari’s Corse Clienti races bring out all of the marvelous machinery from throughout Ferrari’s history, including ex-F1 cars like these. That’s right: if you have ludicrous amounts of money, you can buy an old Ferrari F1 car and go race it.
Unfortunately during this race, the driver in Jean Alesi’s former 1994 Ferrari 412 T1 collided with a former Gerhard Berger 1995 Ferrari 412 T2, per WTF1. The 412 T2 sustained the heaviest damage of the two as it smacked into the wall.
Fortunately, neither driver was injured in the crash, per Fox Sports. While we may be sad at the momentary loss of two awesome cars, we’re also fairly certain that Ferrari mechanics in Maranello will put Humpty and Dumpty back together again.
After all, one does not simply not rebuild an epic ex-F1 racer. Both cars should be back in working order in no time.
