Risi Competizione Partners With The Ferrari Club of America
This week Risi Competizione announced their partnership with the Ferrari Club of America (FCA) for the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship racing season.
The Ferrari Club of America is the largest Ferrari owners club in the world, officially recognized by Enzo Ferrari in Y 1963.
Since then, what was a group of 8 enthusiasts in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has grown to over 6,000 members, over 16 Regions and 43 Chapters across the United States and Canada. Their active membership participates in nearly 900 activities throughout the year.
“Our relationship with Ferrari is closer today than it has ever been in our 53 year history,” said Al DeLauro, Chairman of the Board of the Ferrari Club of America.
This opportunity to formally support the Ferrari Factory Recognized Team of Risi Competizione, comprised of Works Drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander is a seminal event in our rich history of involvement with family of the Cavallino Rampante.
Every Ferrari has a soul, and that soul has the DNA of a race car. To have the colors of the Ferrari Club of America carried by this pre-eminent ‘Racing Stallion’ is a tribute to the strength of our close bond with Maranello, the legacy of Enzo Ferrari and the rolling works of art that are his cars.
We are proud to have the support of the Ferrari Club of America with us this year,” said Giuseppe Risi, Managing Director of Risi Competizione.
As the works GTLM team for North America, this association means a great deal to us. Every time we take the beautiful Ferrari 488 on track, we are reminded of the history of Ferrari, their racing heritage and the stunning street cars they create. We do not take that for granted. We hope to see more Ferrari fans at the races and bring our enthusiasm for the brand at the track and to the showroom.”
The # 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTLM racecar will compete all season with a Ferrari Club of America logo proudly displayed.
Experience the Dream, a Team Risi Motorsports Event
Risi Competizione is offering to racing and Ferrari fans an exclusive 1-of-a-kind travel and motorsports experience from 13-21 June 2016 through Northern Italy with stops at the Ferrari Factory and Museum, as well as the Pininfarina Museum, winding up in being a part of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the popular US based Risi Ferrari team, a 3-time Le Mans winner.
“Experience the Dream” is the trip of a lifetime providing 7 days of 5-Star experiences that would be very difficult, if not virtually impossible, to duplicate.
The Dream Trip is available to 12 couples, will include VIP tours, 1st Class Transportation, exclusive hotels and chateaus, restaurants and special events, culminating with insider access to the greatest sporting event in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, hosted by Risi Competizione.
This year’s return of the battle between Ferrari and Ford makes the 2016 Le Mans twice-around-the-clock race even more special.
Y 2016 marks the 50th Anni of Ford’s historic overall victory with the GT40 and Ford is making a return in Y 2016 with four new Ford GT’s.
Giuseppe Risi and his Team will be meeting the challenge of the Ferrari Vs Ford rivalry, just like Enzo Ferrari did 50 years ago.
The new Ferrari 488 GTE, with Ferrari’s Giancarlo Fisichella as lead driver, is more than up to the task and Risi Competizione has stood at the top of the podium at Le Mans 3X before.
Have a terrific weekend.
