2006 Ferrari F430 Challenge Race Car
Originally sold new by authorised dealer FMA Belgium and delivered on the 07/03/2006 specified as Rosso Scuderia with Sabelt XL seat, the car was campaigned by the official dealer lightly in 2006 and 2007 in the newly formed Challenge series on these cars ,each entrant was dealer supported and was billed as an arrive and drive series ensuring maintenance and overhaul was guaranteed, used subsequently as a client experience car by FMA and then retired in 2011 to join the dealer principles expanding collection of race cars when the 458 Challenge was launched.
In late 2014 the car was re commissioned and prepared for sale, by the same supplying dealer which is when the current owner purchased it, between 2015 and 2019 the car has been used as a private track day car and has been in action in Europe as well as the UK.

A continuous maintenance and improvement plan has been implemented to ensure the car is both reliable and conforms to the vision that Ferrari intended for its challenge series cars.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find a Factory original example of the F430 Challenge that hasn’t been modified to incorporate an aftermarket NON factory issued Aero and still runs on Brembo CCM brakes (which were renewed in August of 2018). The car also sports the correct BBS wheels, shod with Pirelli slicks.
A total of 12 wheels accompany the car.
The maintenance work has been extensive, and has covered items such as:
Engine oil changed after each outing
Gearbox oil changed every other outing
Brake fluid changed every 6 months
Wheel Bearings n/s & o/s replaced
CCM Brake Discs & Pads replaced
N/S & O/S Wishbones replaced
Wheel arch liners all round
Under trays front and rear replaced
