Daytona Adds Ferrari Challenge Events

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Ferrari Challenge, the longest running single marquee racing series in North America, has been added to the schedule of events for the upcoming Rolex 24 At Daytona Weekend on Jan. 24-27 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

The Ferrari Challenge North America, which will feature Ferrari 458 Italias, will race the 3.56-mile road course on Friday, Jan. 25 at 11:45 a.m. and on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. prior to the start of the 51st anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona. Each race will be 15 laps in length.

“The Ferrari Challenge is a great addition to an already exciting schedule of events during the Rolex 24 At Daytona Weekend,” Daytona Int’l Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “Having an iconic car manufacturer such as Ferrari showcase its power and excitement in two events prior to the Rolex 24 further solidifies Daytona International Speedway as the ‘World Center of Racing.’”

The Ferrari Challenge is organized by Ferrari North America and its authorized dealers and is sanctioned by the Grand American Road Racing Ass’n (Grand-Am).

In 1992, Ferrari created the Ferrari Challenge, a single marquee racing series designed to allow Ferrari owners to race fellow Ferrari owners on the world’s greatest race tracks. The Ferrari Challenge expanded into North America in 1993 and has enjoyed a full schedule of races every year since.
