Ferrari has clinched the 2012 Rolex Grand-Am Series Manufacturers’ Championship, Team Championship and Drivers’ Championship behind its 458 Italia race car.
“The race track is truest test of a sports car’s ultimate performance and endurance, and the Ferrari 458 Italia has performed flawlessly in this competition as it does with the rigors of use on the streets,” said Ferrari’s North American CEO Marco Mattiacci.
Driven by the AIM Autosport Team FXXD, this 458 Italia covered over 11,300 track miles and completed every lap this season with eight podium finishes. This is the third manufacturers’ championship for the Italian automaker and reaffirms its position in motorsports as a dominant and reliable force. AIM Autosport was joined by the Scuderia Corsa team to help clinch the GT Manufacturer’s Title for Ferrari.
“Winning the 2012 Rolex Grand-Am Series Manufacturers’ Championship for the third time reminds our clients, fans and competition that nothing brings the passion of racing to everyday driving like a Ferrari,” Mattiacci said.
