In Belgium, we are marking a second anniversary. It was in fact 70 years ago that the driver Jacques Swaters became the official Ferrari importer for the Benelux, making our country the first Ferrari importing country in Europe and the 2nd in the world after the United States.
It was in 1952, Swaters had just founded the Ecurie Francorchamps and imported his first Ferrari, the 500 F2.
The “75 anni di Ferrari” exhibition is organised in collaboration with Interclassics (Brussels Expo: 18th – 20th November 2022) which is also putting the “Scuderia” in the limelight by exhibiting an impressive range of the make’s cars.
