Ferrari GB took the chequered flag for the first time this season with a perfect first and second place in the Spanish sunshine as the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli moved to Valencia (2,3,4 June).
In the second round of the 2006 season, the racing was tough in temperatures of 28¬?C and the Ferrari Challenge Dealer Team GB worked hard in qualifying to ensure that both cars in the Trofeo Pirelli dominated the front row of the grid with pole position and second place.
Ferrari Challenge racing combines the excitement of wheel-to-wheel racing with the luxury of Ferrari hospitality and lifestyle as the drivers compete on Grand Prix circuits across Europe.
Since the opening round in the rain at Silverstone in May, when Ross Kaiser took pole position and a podium finish, the Ferrari Challenge Dealer Team GB has nearly doubled in size with two new drivers joining Ross Kaiser in the Trofeo Pirelli (Christian Passuti and Lorenzo Cas?®) and Geoff Farmer joining Borislav Maletiį in the Coppa Shell.
This was a full weekend of pure Ferrari motorsport as the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli headlined at the Ferrari Racing Days event in Spain at the Ricardo Tormo race circuit outside Valencia. The crowds of Ferrari fans also saw the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, and a range of Ferrari Formula 1 cars including the world championship winning cars of Michael Schumacher from 1999, 2001 and 2003. A handful of VIP Ferrari clients also had a unique opportunity to sample the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano which made a visit to the event.
