For the first time ever, Formula One and GT motor cars took to the streets of Jerusalem as tens of thousands of spectators from all sectors of the city looked on at the Jerusalem Formula Peace Road Show.
Some of the vehicles include the Scuderia Ferrari F1 driven by Giancario Fisichella, Rodolfo Gonzalez Marussia F1 Team, the Ferrari GT Challenge 458 driven by Daniel Mancinelli, the Ferrari GT Challenge 430s driven by Marco Cioci, Ragazzi Riccardo, and Antonio Fuoco, the Lotus LMS LMP2 and Audi DTM driven by Vitantonio Liuzzi, and the Mercedes C63 AMG driven by Valentina Albanese.
Max Biaggi also made a superbike appearance followed by stunt rider Chris Pfeiffer on the BMW F800R.
The Peace Road Show is a project of the Jerusalem Municipality, spearheaded by Mayor Nir Barkat, costing millions of shekels and causing massive traffic disruptions in the city at the end of the week, but at the same time drawing almost a hundred thousand people to the city.
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat addressed the media on the Jerusalem Formula Road Show taking place Thursday and Friday, featuring professional racing vehicles from around the world, "The show bears of message of peace, uniting Jews, Muslims and Christians," said the Mayor.
