Ferrari Racing Days Tackle Spain

The Ferrari Racing Days at the Spanish Valencia track saw the F430 in the European Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophy and the historic cars in the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, along with a special demonstration of the privately-owned Ferrari Formula One cars from the past, coordinated by the Maranello F1 Clienti department.

In the one-make series, the main class saw victory go to Ange Barde (Modena Cars Racing) in race-1, with the Frenchman crossing the line ahead of Casè/Passuti (Ferrari GB Dealer Team) and Wido Roessler (Tamsen.) Then, the afternoon's race saw Casè/Passuti emerge victorious ahead of Ross Kaiser (Ferrari GB Dealer Team) and Barde.

Dennis Huebner (Team Baron) took top honours in the morning race for the gentlemen drivers in the Shell Cup, winning from Ettore Contini (Kessel Racing) and Johnny Guitard (Team FWE.) The finishing order in race-2 then saw Contini get the better of Huebner and Konstantin Ioannidis (Kessel Racing) who finished second and third respectively.

In the 360 Modena class, the cars still eligible this year, alongside the F430, both victories went to Raffaele De Simone (Ineco Ram.)

Spectacular action and excitement there was aplenty in the races for the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, the championship with eligibility restricted to historic Ferraris and Maseratis.

The wins in grids A + B (single-seaters, sports prototypes and GT cars fitted with drum brakes) were split between the 1956 Maserati 250 F of Peter Heuberger in race-1 and the 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza brought to the track by Carlos Monteverde in race-2.

As for group C, (cars with disc brakes,) the 1981 Ferrari 512 BB LM of Massimo Sordi won both races.

The European championships will be back on track over the weekend of 25 June at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) while the Italian Ferrari Challenge Pirelli Trophy series will tackle the fourth round of the season on the weekend of 18 June at Mugello (Italy).
