THE new Ferrari 296 Challenge made its action debut in the UK at the Snetterton race circuit during the third round of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli UK, where current Ferrari Challenge UK and Club Challenge drivers tested the latest model built specifically for the one-make series prior to its competitive debut in the UK series next season.

The debut was keenly anticipated by drivers, who embraced the opportunity to test the first-ever V6 Ferrari Challenge on track, and experience the performance of the new V6 engine which unleashes almost 700 horsepowe.

The engine is derived from the award-winning 2.9-litre V6 in the 296 GTB, but the Ferrari Challenge car does not feature the hybrid system of the road car - one of the reasons the race car weighs 140kg less than the road car.

Drivers will have further opportunities to experience the Ferrari 296 Challenge during the final two races of the Ferrari Challenge UK 2024 season at Donington on July 20 and 21 and at Silverstone from September 13 to 15.
