Great car, great history, nice Little Website: http://www.f348ch.co.uk/

The text in the 1993 (end of Year) Ferrari Yearbook:
“It was a very positive inaugural year, which saw the final Ferrari 348 Challenge race at Mugello with 25 Italian and 34 foreign (Other European) participants, aligned together to competitively battle on the track. They were admired by an enthusiastic public and fans, including the Ferrari factory workers with Executives and Formula 1 drivers as well as a host of previous veteran champions and illustrious personalities of the automotive world. The event will be repeated in 1994 , with the series in Italy and Europe , and will also be organized in the United States.”

I have known this car since late 1997 when Ray Ferguson acquired it for the Pirelli Maranello Challenge here in the UK, we both raced 308 GT4's at the time. I bought it in 2002 and did a few races in 2003, the car has been garaged since then.

It's not street legal but that is something I might do in the future, it could save some late nights!

There's also a model from the 1995 Challenge, when Martin Henderson ran the car - it shows the paint job had changed slightly.
I haven't found a model from 1994 Alan Li's time with the car.
