Maranello, 16 June - the International Zhuhai circuit will this weekend host the first round of the APAC Series of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, with no less than twenty two 458 Challenge cars taking part in the hands of novice owners making their track debut in the Coppa Shell and those with more racing experience involved in the Trofeo Pirelli.
The Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, already one of the most popular international one-make motor racing series has expanded this year with the arrival of the APAC series, which takes place over five rounds and then joins the Ferrari World Finals in November, when competitors in all four divisions – Italy, Europe, North American and APAC, will go head to head to fight for the world title. As in the other series, the race programme consists of two 30 minute qualifying sessions to decide grid positions for the two races held on Sunday and in each leg, a point is given to the driver on pole and the one who sets the fastest race lap. The format ensures makes for very closely contested racing, with plenty of action from start to finish. The fact there are separate classifications for the two levels of driver also avoids having any unfair competition. This new series seems set to get off to a successful start with twenty two cars taking part in the first round of the season.
The busy programme got underway today with two test sessions to help the drivers get to grips with the track prior to the two qualifying sessions on Saturday and then, two races on Sunday, at 11.05 and 15.10.
