2020 – Eight unmissable events for F1 Clienti and XX Programme

2020 promises to be an emotion-filled year, packed with spectacular events for clients attending the XX Programme and F1 Clienti functions. The official calendar is set to take in eight stages spread over seven counties, to which can be added a further date at the Finali Mondiali which, like the other Corse Clienti activities, will be exclusively unveiled at the Mugello weekend.

The proceedings get underway on 6-8 March in the United States at Road Atlanta, as part of the Ferrari Racing Days. On the track located on the outskirts of Atlanta, drivers get to measure up against the multiple challenges that the taxing, yet fun raceway has to offer. From the home of the Petit Le Mans, the protagonists of this special activity move on to Austin, Texas, where from 12-13 March the Circuit of the Americas will set the scene for the opening session of test days. The second is scheduled for Monza from 29-30 April, on a track where the sheer power and speed that only Formula 1 single-seaters are capable of producing, will make it feel like a homecoming.

The fourth event in the calendar coincides with the traditional Ferrari Racing Days in Shanghai, from 5-7 June. The Chinese track hosting the entourage will feature such cars as the FXX-K Evo which will be able to take full advantage of the kind of environments that their sophisticated aerodynamics were originally designed for. From China it is on to Japan, for the fifth stage to be held at Suzuka on 8-9 June. After having received near unanimous consent among the participants the event has duly been reinstated into the 2020 calendar.

Europe will get to host the final three events of the season ahead of the Finali Mondiali. Barcelona will stage test days planned from 21-22 July, before the long summer recess which will give clients plenty of time to psych themselves up to face the 7-plus kilometres of Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps circuit from 7-8 September. A fortnight later, the final test days before the Finali Mondiali will take place at the Paul Ricard circuit in France.

ClassicDriver – 5 collector cars to put in your garage this week

A new decade begins, but one thing remains the same – the Classic Driver Market will always be stocked with an exquisite and diverse selection of collector cars. These are our favourites from this week…

The success of the Prodrive-built 550 Maranello GTS prompted Ferrari to throw its hat into the ring and build a racing version of the 575M. Developed in collaboration with N. Technology, the 575 GTC proved successful in sports-car racing series across the globe, in spite of the fact it was offered to gentleman drivers and never officially run by the Works. This example contested the Italian GT Championship in 2005 in the hands of its owner, the Czech media mogul Antonin Herbeck, and the Italian ex-F1 star Andrea Montermini, scoring several notable results. Perhaps more importantly, being the last of the 12 GTCs built, it is also the final V12-powered Ferrari racing car ever built.

For sale – A unique and special 1994 Ferrari F355 Challenge car with european street legal title

This 355 Challenge was delivered as a Berlinetta to a well known Ferrari Dealer. At that time there was a Challenge KIT available from Ferrari which was bought by the Dealer and mounted according to the Ferrari Cahllenge specifications into the car to race in his own Team. Thats the reason, why this car has a street legal titel. This was possible only in the year 1994, as from 1995/1996 on, Ferrari delivered purely factory made  race cars without street legal titles.

The car is from 1994 so one of the first Challenge cars ever.

The car comes with a fresh service from a well known Ferrari Dealer.

This Ferrari has been restored making perhaps best condition 355 CH available anywhere.

Painted in the original Rosso Corsa.

New Paint, new livery graphics (removable if purchaser so desires), new leather dash & new leather trim around the rear window, new alcantara headliner, new Pirelli Trofeo tires, all the interior plastic switches were refinished so as to eliminate any of the so-called “sticky” parts.  New Challenge set covers were obtained from Italy, including seat cushions, to restore the seats to new looking condition. A lot of Carbon parts in the interior. An engine-out service & detail was performed, seatbelts restored, new windshield (original windshield had a few pit marks), restored wheels, etc.

This F355CH marks the end of the Enzo Era. There will never be another Ferrari road and track race-car like this. A car you can drive to the track, race and drive home.

Asking price 150.000 EUR
