New test phase for the Ferrari 296 GT3


Development work continues for the Ferrari 296 GT3. After Mugello with Davide Rigoni and Miguel Molina last August, the Maranello car that will replace the 488 GT3 Evo was treated to a new test phase this time near Portimão, a circuit “ well adapted « for any series of tests » dynamic thanks to its long straight line and its technical curves.

As at Mugello, Davide Rigoni and Miguel Molina again took the wheel of the Ferrari 296 GT3 but this time were joined by two other factory drivers, namely Alessandro Pier Guidi and Daniel Serra. In the Algarve, the changeable weather allowed the builder to work in various conditions ranging from dry to wet, thus gathering valuable data for the last part of the development.

 » We have concluded three days of positive trials, in which we have carried out the activities that had been planned, collecting a lot of data that we will now be able to analyze, in order to optimize the route following the program and the direction that we have defined,” said Daniel Serra.

There are now four months left for the Maranello teams to finalize the development of the Ferrari 296 GT3, whose first appearance in competition is scheduled for the 24 Hours of Daytona 2023 (January 26 to 29).
