The Ferrari Challenge continues to expand with the introduction of a new series that, starting in 2025, will see the Prancing Horse’s single-marque series racing in the Southern Hemisphere: the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Australasia.

With its schedule set to be announced in the coming months, the new regional championship joins an extensive line-up that includes international series in countries such as Europe and North America, as well as national series in the UK and Japan.

The event format will mirror that of other Ferrari championships, featuring 30-minute races and plus an additional lap and numerous sessions on the track including tests, free practice, and qualifying sessions.

“We are delighted to announce this championship, a project our team has been working on for a long time,” Global Head of Ferrari Endurance and Corse Clienti,” Antonello Coletta. “The introduction of the Australasia series is part of a clear strategy that began with the UK national series and continued with the Japan series, which has been a great success in terms of participation.”

Head of Ferrari Challenge and Corso Pilota, Andrea Mladosic said, “The growth of the Ferrari Challenge in recent years has been remarkable, and with the introduction of the new 296 Challenge, the number of participants has exceeded our most optimistic expectations, as seen in the first races of the season. Interest from the markets in the region and numerous requests from our motorsports clients prompted us to explore the possibility of extending the championship, so we are delighted to announce this new series.”
