Scuderia Corsa, the Los Angeles based Ferrari team competing in its first full season of Grand-AM and now Westphal will join Balzan behind the wheel of the #63 Ferrari 458 for the remainder of the season in the Rolex GT class.
Westphal, a 26 year-old San Francisco native, started his racing career at a local northern California indoor go-cart track when the track owner was so impressed with his raw talent that he sponsored him for the 2004 Red Bull Driver Search Runoffs. During the past few seasons Jeff has gained attention for his record-breaking victories in the Global Time Attack series and others early career highlights included a record string of victories in the Pacific F2000 series where he took the championship with 9 wins in 12 races. Jeff has earned numerous Continental Challenge starts together with two participations in the Rolex 24H At Daytona.
Ferrari Challenge team, I have appreciated his commitment and contribution to our team. I think he earned the opportunity to drive #63. Together with Balzan they formed a fast and reliable duo. I am looking forward to a great season with Jeff.”
"I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to drive the #63 after working with Scuderia Corsa and Ferrari for over a year” said Jeff Westphal. “The two have a reputation nothing short of stellar and I look forward to moving forward with both in the rest of this 2013 season. The remaining races encompass quite the challenge with some world-class facilities and events, tracks that I cannot wait to see again from behind the wheel”.
