    Hello,
    I am looking for any information that I can find about a Ferrari Challenge team
    that I think was based out of SoCal.

    The team was owned or managed by Michael Letterman and would have been
    active in the late 1990s to about 2005. That is about all I know so far, except
    that I believe he had a 3 car team. He provided the cars, crew and parts and
    drivers would pay him to compete. I am hoping to find out the team name, the
    types of cars raced and possibly maybe some of the driver's names.

    If anyone knows something about this team or has an idea of where I can go to
    find more information, please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Greg

    Hi,
    Just an update ----
    The guy's name was Michael Lederman not (Letterman) and he worked for Ogner Motorcars.
    I still have not found anything about his Challenge team or any pictures.

    Please can anyone can be of some help in pointing me in the right direction in my search?
    Thanks very much,
    Greg

    I work for a small custom trailer manufacturer in Minnesota. I am currently in the process
    of refurbishing a race trailer that was built for Mr. Lederman for his Challenge team. It was
    built in 2002 and was used to haul three Ferrari.

    It is a nice custom made trailer that is being reworked and upgraded and will be used by the
    new owner in the American LeMans series.

    I am hoping to get a little history of it and the team that used it. Perhaps some pictures of the team cars,
    an actual trackside picture of the trailer would be wonderful, maybe some team or driver's history. Right
    now all I know is what I mentioned above. It was built for Lederman and he used it from 2002 until
    I believe 2005. I don't even have a team name, if there was one.

    Another update.
    The trailer was owned by Steve Goldman and Bob Faieta of Competition Motors.
    It was then sold to it's current owner in 2005, It is now being updated for use in
    the ALMS series. Case solved.

    If anyone might have any pictures from track events at Willow Springs that might
    show Steve or Bob and a trailer, Please contact me.
    Thank you,
    Greg
