Mugello, 6 November – Antonello Coletta, head of the Corse Clienti department has every reason to be proud when looking back at the 2011 racing season for both the Ferrari Challenge and the GT championships. The figures say it all: “President Montezemolo mentioned the Bruni and Fisichella’s win in the Le Mans Series with the AF Corse car and, next weekend, we hope to add the ILMC title too,” said Coletta. “But there are also the wins in the GT Open and several national GT2 championships, such as Castellacci-Leo, who again in an AF Corse car, won the FIA GT3 championship, a series in which we were making our debut with a car entirely designed by ourselves, that also won titles in the GT Open and national series. The numbers are also gratifying from a commercial point of view. This year alone, we sold 54 458 GT cars and, as a reference point we only have to look at the 65 430s we sold over four years. Sure, we had a few reliability problems at the start, but then, once these were sorted the results began to come. We race all over the world and next year, we will also embark on the Grand-AM scene.” The figures are also positive when it comes to the Prancing Horse one-make series. “This year is the 19th of the series and probably, this is the longest running championship of its kind. This year we sold over 180 cars and we ran four championships: Italy, Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. I am especially pleased to mention that we had no less than 28 drivers running in the first year of the Asia-Pacific, along with the 80 or so competitors in Europe and 40 in North America. Around half of them are here in Mugello as a great climax to an amazing season.”
