    I need help locating Ferrari Challenge Records from the F355 series for '97 to '01 for the Venezuela series.

    I have a fairly good start to a list of the drivers that participated those years, but am basing that off of magazine articles and yearbooks.

    Can anyone who was involved in the series or familiar with it connect me with drivers from back then or someone with good records.

    I am trying to track down the driver's names and connect them with the cars, their race numbers, sponsoring teams,etc.

    Thanks for any help.

    Contact me anytime.

    Please excuse my lack of proper Spanish language with these threads. My apologies.

    Here is my list of drivers in the 1997 Ferrari Challenge in Venezuela. I also have other drivers for 1998 and 1999:

    Fenando "Powerhaus" Baiz, Venezuela - Maranello Motorsports
    Enrique Beracasa, Venezuela - Maranello Motorsports
    Juan Blasha
    Joseph Coletta
    Francois Guerin, Venezuela - Maranello Motorsports
    Francisco Gueron
    Julio Cesar Hidalgo
    Juan A Hinestrosa, Venezuela - Maranello Motorsports
    Alejandro Nannini
    Luis Noboa
    Julio Novoa
    Samuel Quiros
    Tomas Tinedo, Venezuela
    Jose Luis Valera, Venezuela - Maranello Motorsports
    Ernesto Viso

    Many of these drivers have raced in Ferrari Challenge series with 430, 458, etc. Maybe someone knows a current driver that could help with info. They could email me. Who can add missing details (like first names) or has some vintage racing records from the series?

    Maybe someone in South America or an enthusiast familiar with the series can help me fill in some of the blanks?

    I will send an email to Maranello Motorsports in Caracas - the official dealer there, but the more people that can contribute to the verification effort - the better. My goal is to put together accurate records and information to celebrate the series, drivers, sponsors, and cars.

    I am translating some of the links I have found from the South American Press. Cool stuff.

    Thank you for your time and interest. Please contribute even small facts.
