Ferrari F430 GT2

F131 EVOGT 2418

3RD GT2 LE MANS 24H 2006

BRITISH GT CHAMPION 2006

The new Ferrari F430 shared its aluminium chassis with the preceding 360 but the F430 marked the debut of Ferrari’s new twin overhead camshaft, 32-valve V8 engine, the F136E. The 90-degree V8 was co-developed with Maserati but Maranello’s version used its own 180-degree flat-plane crankshaft.

It did not take long for Ferrari to develop a GT2 racing version of the F430 with long time racing partner Michelotto Automobili. To comply with the FIA rules the engine was stroked to 4.0 litres giving 450bhp and was mated to a six-speed sequential paddle-shift transmission. The weight was pared to only 1,100Kg by extensive use of carbon fibre giving the F430 GT2 an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

The F430 GTC has a superb record winning the FIA GT2 Manufacturers Cup and Drivers titles in 2006 and 2007, the ALMS GT2 Manufacturers title in 2007 and the GT2 class at Le Mans in 2006.

Scuderia Ecosse took delivery of 2418 to run in both the 2006 FIA GT Championship & the British GT Championship. There were 10 rounds of the FIA Championship of which Scuderia Ecosse won 5, one more than the eventual Champions, and finished second in the GT2 Championship. Scuderia Ecosse went one better in the 2006 British GT Championship where Chris Niarchos and Tim Mullen won 10 of the 14 races with 2418 to emerge worthy Champions.

The icing on the cake came at the 2006 Le Mans 24 Hrs when 2418 finished 3rd in GT2, Niarchos & Mullen being joined by Andrew Kirkaldy for the great race.

Scuderia Ecosse finished third in the 2007 FIA GT2 Championship 2008: 2418 was run by CR Scuderia and they finished fourth in the FIA GT2 Championship with victory at Bucharest finishing 1st in both the races.

2009: CR Scuderia, now renamed CRS, again finished third in the FIA GT2 Championship.

2010: CRS ran 2418 in the Super GT class of the International GT Open where Chris Mullen took three victories; Imola & Spa with Chris Niarchos and Barcelona with Adam Christodoulou.
