The inaugural 2019 FPC—Miami was formed by Rudolf Budja and Heinz Swoboda as an event that brings together motorsport collectors and racing enthusiasts at Homestead Miami Speedway for a two-day circuit drive, for the owners of today’s classic and original Ferrari and Porsche sports cars. Up to 50 Ferrari and 50 Porsche vehicles and their owners were invited to the Homestead Miami Speedway track, February 19—20, for two days of high-speed performance. FPC—Miami is not a race with timekeeping, but developed as a chance for the owners and drivers of these classic sports vehicles to meet like-minded collectors and rev their engines without any noise or speed limitations.
