So 2016 saw our 458 come out of semi retirement to compete in the GT Cup Championship. Our brief from the car’s owner, Paul Bailey, was he wanted to win the GTC class as he won the GTO class in 2015 in one of his Aston Martin GT3 cars, and wanted to come back in a Ferrari.
The season had its ups and downs, and the car was plagued by electrical and gearbox issues. Knowing the car well we managed to nurse through the season ,Unfortunately the car did not make the last round due to an engine failure, but we did managed to collect enough points for a clear win in the GTC class.
January 2017 was time to collect our class win trophy to add to the big collection for the 2016 season! A big thank you to everyone who supported us through the season and to the guys at SBR who put in the time to get the results. Also a big thank you to Paul for letting us support and prepare his cars..
