Maranello, 4 March – The Monza National Circuit today hosted a day of testing for entrants in the Italian and European Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli series.
Drivers from both championships thus got the chance to familiarise themselves with the famous track, which hosts the first round of the season over the weekend of 10 April. They also had the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the new 458 Challenge car, the fifth model to be used by Ferrari in its one-make series, which makes its debut this season alongside the F430 Challenge. Twenty two cars too part, six F430 Challenge and sixteen 458 Challenge, taking turns in two separate test sessions.
The drivers were pleased with how the day went and commented on how easy the new car was to drive. This is down to significant modifications which have led to a reduction in weight and the use of innovative solutions which make it fun to drive and also delivered some interesting times on the stopwatch.
The 458 Challenge will take part in a second test session, again alongside the F430 Challenge, at the same circuit on 21 March.
