SEBRING, Florida (April 7, 2019) – Scuderia Corsa walks away from Round Two of Ferrari Challenge North America at the historic Sebring International Raceway with seven podiums, top points in Coppa Team and a deep appreciation for the renowned track.
Drivers arrived at the infamous 3.74-mile, 17 turn track for three-days of fun immersing themselves in the rich history of the former airforce base. They took to the track that has seen 37 Ferrari victories in the acclaimed Twelve Hours of Sebring and learned to “respect the bumps” on the old runway that now serves as a front straight.
Scuderia Corsa arrived at the track eager to not just race, but win. Cooper MacNeil once again demonstrated dominance in Trofeo Pirelli winning Race Two after finishing second in Race One. MacNeil’s overall win on Sunday earned the team top honors in Coppa Team.
Thomas Tippl drove a fantastic race joining MacNeil on the podium both days achieving third on Saturday and second on Sunday. Chris Carel rounded out the pack with a strong drive in Trofeo Pirelli AM finishing fourth.
Lisa Clark once again showed strength in Coppa Shell AM earning second in Race One as well as top honors in Coppa Ladies.
In Coppa Shell AM newcomer Eric Martson showed tremendous skill mastering the track and finishing just one step off of the podium Saturday. Neil Landberg ran strong races both Saturday and Sunday in Coppa Shell AM as well, walking away from the conquering the 17-turn track while creating great memories.
Bo Hu enjoyed his first race in Club Challenge mastering the skills necessary to maneuver the Ferrari 488 around one of America’s most technical tracks while still finding enjoyment. The Club Challenge program is designed as the first natural step to improving pace and preparing to enter the Ferrari Challenge series. It allows drivers to take to the track in a non-traditional race setting in which they race the clock rather than competitors. The 488’s are outfitted with telemetry devices giving the drivers the opportunity to study the data before hitting the track once more to try and beat their previous times.
The Ferrari Challenge drivers get a month break before their next race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. The weekend kickoffs Friday, May 10, and includes F1 Clienti as well as the XX Programmes. The team now turns its eyes to the IndyCar Acura Long Beach Grand Prix, April 12-14 in Long Beach, California.
