After a hugely successful inaugural season in 2019, the Ferrari Challenge UK returns in 2020 with another 4 race weekends of competitive racing with Ferrari clients in the Ferrari 488 Challenge. The series will see clients compete on both the Donington Circuit and the Brands Hatch GP Circuit for the first time. As in 2019, the Season Finale takes place at Silverstone in September.
The Ferrari Challenge UK Series is the only National Championship operated by Ferrari, and completes the impressive family of Ferrari Challenge Championships, which is made up of the European, North American, and Asia Pacific series, as well as the UK series.
Francesco Balli – Regional Manager, Ferrari North Europe, said: “We are thrilled that the first season of the Ferrari Challenge UK was an incredible success, and this has given us great momemtum to build on this series for 2020. We are delighted to welcome many of the drivers from 2019 back to the grid this year, as well as some new drivers who will be taking to the track in their Ferrari 488 Challenge for the very first time. We’ve also seen some clients use the Ferrari Challenge UK series to progress and compete in the Ferrari Challenge Europe season this year, which is exactly what we had hoped.”
