Ferrari Challenge UK is once again inviting visitors to Brands Hatch following the resumption of its racing calendar, which is returning on the weekend of the 25th July. The race event organised by Ferrari North Europe, will be one of the first motorsport events in the UK to welcome visitors through the gates following the suspension of motorsport activity due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Using both the historic Indy and GP circuits, there will be two races over the course of the weekend for visitors to enjoy. An impressive grid of drivers, including many new drivers as well as several who took part in the championship’s inaugural season last year, are excited to get behind the wheel of their Ferrari 488 Challenge. There is more racing action over the course of the weekend, with support coming from the Ferrari Owners’ Club GB Pirelli Ferrari formula classic series once again.
The 488 Challenge is the first turbo-charged model to race in the Ferrari Challenge series, and it is also the most powerful Ferrari Challenge car ever. The car is powered by a 670hp 3.9-litre V8 derived from the series production engine that has won several International Engine of the Year Awards. Thanks to extensive development of the car’s engine, aerodynamics and chassis, the 488 Challenge has achieved new levels of performance and driver involvement.
In accordance with COVID-secure requirements, Brands Hatch will welcome day visitors with reduced capacities and a range of hygiene and safety measures will be in place. Please note, the paddock and pit lane will be closed to the public until further notice. All tickets must be purchased in advance to guarantee admission. For more information, please visit the Brands Hatch website.
The Ferrari Challenge UK series is open to any UK clients who own a Ferrari 488 Challenge race car. Clients should contact their local dealer for further details on how to enter.
