Fer­rari in­vests in clas­sic know-how

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Fer­rari has added a clas­sic car mod­ule to its ap­pren­tice­ship scheme to se­cure the skills nec­es­sary to main­tain his­toric ve­hi­cles in the fu­ture.

This means that all new ap­pren­tices taken on from Septem­ber this year will be trained to han­dle all the main ser­vice items for clas­sic Fer­raris, in­clud­ing bal­last re­sis­tor ig­ni­tion sys­tems, mag­ne­tos, dy­namos, twin point dis­trib­u­tors, car­bu­ret­tors, me­chan­i­cal fuel in­jec­tion and straight-cut gear­boxes.

A spokesman for Fer­rari says: ‘If we don’t train our dealer net­work we won’t have the skills to look af­ter our cus­tomers’ cars.

The dealer net­work al­ready has access to clas­sic parts ‘for any car built through our his­tory’ and unique fuel in­jec­tion and car­bu­ret­tor tool­ing.
