JMB Ferrari 355 Challenge cars

Post by Mangusta » Sat 23. Dec 2017, 15:11

I found the following Fotos.
JMB had a 355 Challenge car, no rear wing, should be a 1995 car.
Does anybody knows where the car is ???

Thanks

Hi, they never ran that car in those colours in the official Challenge series. They did run a pair of 355 cars in the 1999 official Europe West series, drivers were Batti Pregliasco and Marco Lambertini.
Both went on to drive the F360 in the 2000 Fia GT championship, in number 70.
Lambertini is “Mr. Giesse / Aprimatic”.
Pregliasco went on to be a leading figure in GPC squadra Corse before, I believe, now at AF Corse.
I have many photos and lots of the slide negatives from the official photographer, from the 1999 season.

The yellow car in question, if you check the photos, you can see the number panels have FFSA logos.
This car ran in the junior category of the 2001 FFSA GT series - a bit like GT4 of the day.
At this time, JMB Racing administration was run by Gautier Calmels, son of Didier.
I had decals custom made in 1/18 scale and I made 2 models of this car back on 2002.
I have one, I sent the other to Didier.
