2017 Finali Mondiali Ferrari Challenge Joel Weinberger

This past weekend, our Dealer Principal Joel Weinberger participated in the 2017 Finali Mondiali Ferrari Challenge in Italy. The racing event took place from October 26 to October 29, ending in an exciting race, as well as the reveal of a new model to mark the end of the motorsport season.

The track covers a distance of 5.245 meters and offers an engaging drive, complete with a long straight for impressive acceleration, as well as 15 exhilarating turns and curves.

In the first Ferrari Challenge North America race on October 27, Weinberger placed 7th, with a total time of 31:51.769, just 6.431 seconds behind the first-place finisher. This impressive performance was no surprise after well-timed his qualifying lap, in which he placed 8th, finishing in only 1:53.636, less than two seconds behind the first-place finisher. Take a look at the final laps of the exciting race!

Over the course of Weinberger’s season, he achieved great success behind the wheel of his Ferrari 458 CHALLENGE. This year, he placed 13th in the Trofeo Pirelli 458 North America with 34 points and 6th in the Trofeo Pirelli Am North America with 45 points.
