The long partnership between Pirelli and Ferrari in the Ferrari Challenge dates back to the inception of the Series in 1993 with specially prepared 348s. Since then, in fact, Pirelli has always been the exclusive supplier to the series, guaranteeing its attributes of competence and professionalism to Ferrari, the drivers and teams alike.
In 2017 the 488 Challenge will debut in the championship. Also this new model will be fitted with 19" tyres, an exclusive in the world of competitions: another demonstration of how closely Pirelli's racing developments are connected to their P Zero road tyre product. For the F488 Challenge Pirelli developed slick and wet tyres in dedicated sizes, 275/675-19 at the front and 315/705-19 at the rear.
Both new and experienced drivers compete in the Ferrari Challenge, that includes three championship series: Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. The Trofeo Pirelli, as in the past, is destined – with a dedicated classification - to drivers with racing experience.
