BREMBO CELEBRATES 70 YEARS OF FERRARI WITH 70 UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS SHARED TOGETHER

As everyone already knows, Ferrari is celebrating 70 years in 2017. It's an important anniversary for a brand that has made automotive and racing history.

Here at Brembo we wanted to pay homage to the genius of Enzo Ferrari and his grand creation by remembering some of the magical moments we shared together.

Brembo has, in fact, worked with Ferrari for over 4 decades: the two brands first met in 1975 when Piero Ferrari introduced Alberto Bombassei to his father Enzo. Brembo was commissioned with supplying the discs for Ferrari's Formula 1 single-seaters. In the early eighties the relationship with Scuderia Ferrari grew thanks to an agreement for the creation of aluminum radial-mount calipers.

Trust grew and, over the years that followed, Ferrari decided to rely on Brembo for its road vehicles, just as the brand was gaining popularity to the point of becoming the strongest brand in the world. We've enjoyed exciting moments with Ferrari on racetracks all over the world and have had the honor of contributing to the creation of some of the most desirable road vehicles in the world.

To join in celebrating 70 years of Ferrari, we've selected 70 unforgettable moments, each of which will receive an Instagram post and can be found using the #70BremboforFerrari hashtag. Selecting 70 of these unforgettable moments wasn't easy given the overwhelming number of emotions shared with Ferrari over these years.

Happy Birthday Ferrari.

1978: having lost Niki Lauda, it only takes Ferrari 2 GPs to return to rejoicing. The feat is achieved by Carlos Reutemann in Jacarepagua: roaring from the start, he passes up 3 cars and runs free. Reutemann will win with a 49-second advantage. Brembo thanks you.
