Valera and Farano split the Ferrari Challenge wins at Interlagos
Beretta wows the Brazilian fans by taking the Ferrari F10 out on the historic Interlagos Circuit
The first-ever Ferrari Racing Days in Brazil took place at the Interlagos Circuit, with the weekend seeing owners involved in the non-competitive Ferrari programs. All of the Prancing Horse’s sports cars strutted their stuff at the iconic Interlagos Circuit which will once again host the final round of the next Formula 1 World Championships on November 24th.
The cars spanned the spectrum from the 458 used in the Ferrari Challenge North America to the 599 XXs, four world championship-winning single-seaters (F2001, F2003-GA, F2007 and F2008) driven by collectors and cared for by F1 Clienti, and the exhibition F10 which was driven by French driver Olivier Beretta.
On the grid for those 458 Challenge cars running in the Trofeo Pirelli, Race 1 was dominated by Jose Valera who crossed the line ahead of John Farano and Brazilian driver Eduardo Ramos.
The Race 2 of Pirelli produced a spectacular result with victory going to John Farano, who won over Jose Valera and Eduardo Ramos.
Of the Coppa Shell drivers, Henrik Hedman ended on the top step of the Race 1 podium, beating Marc Muzzo at the line, while the battle for third ended in favour of Brent Lawrence.
Brent Lawrence emerged victorious in Race 2, followed home by Marc Muzzo and Brazilian driver Raul Costa.
The third round of the North American series of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli takes place in California at the Sonoma Raceway on April 26-28.
