    If you are a challenge car owner or fan of the series, drivers, or cars - tune in to a newly pinned thread disclosing historical records and behind the scenes information in the Challenge Car Section.

    https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/ferrari-challenge-series-historical-records-and-information.621715/

    Information will be added regularly and there should be some nice discoveries for viewers along the way. The goal is to share the information and make it a wikipedia type of time capsule so that the information is not accidentally lost to time prior to the digital age...

    This exercise will cover a huge amount of information so enjoy returning regularly to read what life was like back in the day with many of our favorite models on the track.

    It really is amazing to see that this information will not be lost to time...

    I'm pretty excited to see how much has been accumulated. And it is only in the first inning so to speak...

    All of the 1994 season behind the scene info for the North American series has been added to the records thread.

    A lot of good reading in there.

    Thanks so much for being the custodian and sharer of this trove of information, Robb. It’s great to read about the exploits of my car (Jim McCormick’s #77) from back in the day. Third in the 1996 US series was pretty good going!

    All of 1999 is now posted.

    The 2000 and 2001 series include F355 and also involve 360's so I will take a look at posting what I have on those years and then circling back around to including the drivers, cars, and further info on all of the 360's...

    I've posted the list of drivers for the 360 challenge cars for the 2000 series. As my emphasis has been on the 348 and F355 series and cars up to now, I still have serial numbers to add to these 360's from my records. I'll add the 2000 and 2001 series info so that the rest of the races concerning the 355 will be wrapped up and then pause to add more detailed info back on the 360's.

    Anyway, I'll start to add a thread in the 360/430 section so that crowd can learn more about the series with their models.

    I'll come back to this thread when I wrap up 2000 an d 2001 with the 355.

    Info from the 2000 series is up - although I am missing some details.

    Lots of good information especially on costs... I'll let you do the math.
