Are You Up to Ferrari’s Challenge?

The Ferrari Passione Club Challenge unveils expanded 2020 Season

By Terry Christodoulou 27/11/2019

One of the very few problems Ferrari owners face is that you never really get to stretch the legs on the prancing horse.

That is, of course, unless you are a member of the Passione Ferrari Club Challenge, which yesterday saw the launch of the 2020 Australasian season.

Expanding on last year’s season, the Club Challenge now sees drivers push the limits of their cars across five circuits, with this season including: Sydney Motor Sport Park, Melbourne’s Philip Island Grand Prix Circuit, The Bend Motorsport Park Adelaide, Barbagallo Raceway Perth and Hampton Downs Motor Sport Park in New Zealand.

However, there are a few barriers to entry of this exclusive drive series. You have to own either a Ferrari 458 Challenge or 488 Challenge that passes a safety test before racing and become a member of the Ferrari Passione Club Challenge, which will either set you back $7500 for a one driver for membership, and $60,000 for the five track days across the seasons.

Beyond access to Australia and New Zealand’s best circuits, would-be drivers get their own personalised race suit among other essentials (like fire-proof underwear) needed to go fast, and six hours of track time at per event.

Use that track time as you may, with convenience at the core of the experience with catering and hospitality taken care of outside the car, and telemetry and light technical support supplied trackside.

And even if you think yourself a Sebastian Vettel amongst the pack, there’s always room for improvement with Ferrari instructors offering tuition services to help you shave off those valuable tenths.
