Welcome to the English section of the website of the Dutch Ferrari Club.
The late Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was one of the first prominent clients of Ferrari in the early nineteen fifties and a longtime honorary club member. The unique relationship between Enzo Ferrari and Prince Bernhard, eventually led to a distributor in the Netherlands and an ever growing number of Ferrari drivers and enthusiastic club members.
The Ferrari Club Nederland (FCN) was founded in 1983 with the objective to bring Ferrari-owners and enthusiasts together. To this day, sharing the passion for our favourite marque between owners and enthusiasts, among others by organising a variety of attractive events, is the key.
The Ferrari Club Nederland now has around 900 members, in the Netherlands as well as abroad. This makes the club one of the largest Ferrari Owners’ Clubs in the world. From early 166 streetcars to Enzos, from an early 375 monoposto to a F2002 Formula 1, the club has a very interesting range of cars among its members. The club works in close cooperation with the Dutch Ferrari distributors, Ferrari SpA in Italy and other Ferrari Owners’ Clubs in the world.
Membership of the club offers Ferrari owners plenty of opportunity to drive their car(s) and share their passion with others at many occasions. The club organizes around 10 events a year for its members. Among these are track days on the Zandvoort Circuit and several ‘social and driving’ events. At least once a year the club organises an extensive weeklong trip abroad to e.g. the factory in Maranello, Mas du Clos in France or Goodwood in the UK. Also special events for classic Ferrari-owners are being organised.
During track events owners can improve their driving capabilities at high speed, with more experienced drivers as a consequence and finally more fun and safety with the car. The FCN was founder and co-sponsor of the ‘Italia a Zandvoort’ track event, which used to be one of the biggest motorsport events in the country, with Ferrari as the most prominent car make.
An important role within the Ferrari Club Nederland is played by our ‘supporting members’ of the club, members who do not - yet - own a Ferrari, but who are real ‘passionata’ of the marque. These members have their own events, are very active in assisting during club events and are true ambassadors of the ‘Prancing Horse’.
Both members and ‘supporting members’ receive the club magazine ‘Gli Amici della Ferrari’. The magazine has been continuously published on a quarterly basis ever since 1983. It is the objective of the club to offer all its members plenty of opportunity to enjoy the marque. Be it in a Ferrari during our events or through the club’s website or the club’s magazine.
