If you want to follow Myles and his adventures, find him here: https://www.instagram.com/mylespoulton/ From Girardo & Co: The F430 Challenge is based upon the Ferrari F430 but has been enhanced by the Maranello factory to be lighter and faster. The car benefits from a racing exhaust and engine management developments with the slick tyre-shod racing BBS wheels being mounted using a Formula 1-inspired central locking wheel nut. This was also the first Ferrari sports competition car is use Carbon-ceramic material (CCM), with the 6-speed paddle-operated sequential manual transmission also being derived from Ferrari’s Formula One programme. The fifth, sixth and final drive ratios were tweaked for the F430 Challenge. The traction control and stability systems of the road car have been permanently disengaged, although the car does retain enhanced ABS and ASR systems, ensuring the driver can really experience the performance offered by this car. To reduce weight, all carpets and sound deadening material was removed, along with the radio. The standard leather seats were replaced with ultra-light FIA-approved carbon racing seats. Also in the cabin, the leather door pockets were replaced with lightweight Carbon panels, with the rear and side windows replaced with Lexan. For safety, a roll cage was fitted, along with a 6-point racing harness. For competition, Ferrari produced the F430 Challenge for its Challenge Series, and the F430 GTC in collaboration with Michelotto Automobili for international GT2 competition. However, neither car was eligible for the FIA GT3 European Championship, nor the various national GT championships across Europe. Spotting an opportunity in the market, JMB Racing upgraded the F430 Challenge to GT3 specification. The main improvements were to aerodynamics and power, with the engine now tuned to produce over 550 bhp.
