“Throughout the 2012 Ferrari Challenge Series, both the drivers and their machines, the Ferrari 458 Challenge, have demonstrated tremendous strength, tenacity and endurance,” says Marco Mattiacci, President and CEO, Ferrari North America. “On the track and on the road, where all new Ferrari’s are sold exclusively through the authorized dealer network and are backed by the free seven-year Ferrari Genuine Maintenance Program, Ferrari’s performance, appeal and lasting durability has never been greater,” Mattiacci continues.

The Ferrari Challenge drivers are eager to return for this championship competition at Homestead Miami Speedway following their interval since the last racing weekend at Connecticut’s historic Lime Rock Park (July 20 – 22). There, among drivers participating in the two Trofeo Pirelli categories, the first race was won by Onofrio Triarsi, driving for Ferrari of Central Florida, thereby confirming his lead in the championship; while the second ended in victory for Carlos Kauffmann, driving for Ferrari of Beverly Hills.

At Lime Rock Park in the Coppa Shell category, there was an excellent performance from Ferrari of Ontario’s Robert Herjavec and Guy Leclerc, driving for Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale, who dominated the first and second legs respectively.

Following the North American Championship race at Homestead Miami Speedway, the winning teams will continue to the International Ferrari Challenge Finals taking place over the weekend of November 29th to December 2nd at the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. This event is planned in celebration of the F1 season finish with attendance by the Scuderia Ferrari F1 team to conclude all of Ferrari 2012 racing activities with a memorable manifestation.

A Ferrari Challenge demonstration race will also support the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX, on November 16-18 2012.
