When he is only ten years old, Enzo Ferrari runs to the next village only to watch a car race. Now the direction for his life is set. He starts immediately working on vehicles and as soon as he is old enough to drive a real car, he becomes a race car driver. Soon the young man shows ambitions in finding a racing team. He offers his services to Fiat but the team managers turn him down. Yet Alfa Romeo hires Ferrari and promotes him to team manager. With gusto Ferrari takes his family to the races. His wife objects to the noise and considers this environment inappropriate for little Dino, but Enzo's enthusiasm knows no restraint. He is determined to raise him as his successor. Ferrari's reputation grows and enables him to create his own company, Scuderia Ferrari. When he presents his employees (including Giuseppe Campari and Tazio Nuvolari) to the press, he explains that enthusiasm can be contagious.

If you ever wondered why the passion about Ferraris is, you have to see the show. Sadly, I don't see a DVD release, but it would be a darn shame if a producing company would not put it on DVD...
The story is, in the end - about the passion. Passion for something higher, a dream to achieve more than people around you can achieve. Enzo took the brave step and moved forward with his dream, from being a small-time mechanic amongst the greats like Alfa Romeo and FIAT, to setting up a small shop and going to produce marveleous cars.
Ferrari is a synonym for everything great in automotive industry, not a rich man's dream like DeLorean, Lamborghini or Porsche.
