Laguna Seca Ferrari Racing Days 2011


Ferrari-Racing-Days

Good morning beautiful sunny California! Today is day practice day before 2 days of races at the Laguna Seca 2011 Ferrari Racing Days at the Mazda Raceway in Monterey. I arrived in San Francisco yesterday and warmed up my 5DMKII by visiting Lamborghini San Francisco and Bentley San Francisco.

Among the Ferrari Racing events I am most excited to see the hardcore track only versions of the Ferrari 458, Ferrari FXX and Ferrari 599XX screaming around the track! Stay tuned for full video and photo coverage!

Ferrari 458 Challenge Photos & Video


Ferrari 458 Challenge

5 Years after Ferrari unveiled their F430 challenge production model at the 2005 LA Auto Show, Ferrari throws down (just in time for Xmas) with the introduction of the Ferrari 458 challenge (based off the Ferrari 458 Italia)

Like all challenge cars, the engine remains untouched (V8 with 570hp), but performance upgrades include the vehicles F1 gearbox gearing and significant weight loss via carbon fiber and plastic modifications. Also a 1st for Ferrari track-only challenge cars is the use of an E-Diff electronic differential already employed on the road-going version.

It also has a hardcore race tuned suspension setup, stiffer springs lowered by 50mm, single-rate alloy dampers, centre-nut 19-inch forged wheels, Pirelli slicks, new-generation Brembo CCM2 brakes integrated with the latest ABS system, which debuted on the Ferrari 599XX.

Another first for a Ferrari Challenge model is the adoption of the F1-Trac traction control system, the most sophisticated of its kind, says Ferrari. Developed in-house by the automaker, the F1-Trac system constantly monitors levels of grip for maximum high-performance road holding.

Although the Ferrari 458 challenge was originally presented at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting in July 2010, the Bologna Motor Show world debut marks it’s official production arrival. Ferrari claims that the 458 challenge is 2 seconds faster than the Ferrari 430 Challenge at the Fiorano test track and only 0.2 seconds slower than their military grade Enzo Ferrari, the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione. I am really hoping to catch the 458 challenge

Ferrari Club of Victoria Australia Show Pictures


ferrari club victoria show

On November 15, 2009, the Ferrari Club Victoria Australia held a fundraiser show to raise support for one of the communities affected by bush fires earlier in the year. It was a great turn out considering it’s 100km from Melbourne. Check out all the pictures of the FCV Show HERE. Ferrari Club Victoria have a regular concourse every year and many drive days and meetings. What a sea of RED! My favorite car would have to be the Yellow Ferrari 430 Scuderia with 458 Italia wheels. Thanks to 300 SLED for his photo submissions!
