Silverstone Park based motor racing team FF Corse celebrated arguably the most famous victories in its history at the world famous Le Mans 24 Hours, France in June.
In front of some 300,000 people, driver Adam Carroll emerged the winner in the event’s supporting Ferrari Challenge Europe race – held on the full iconic 8.5-mile Le Mans circuit.
His team-mate, Belgian Laurent de Meeus, was also the winner of the same race’s Coppa Shell Am class.
There was also a podium result – third in the Pirelli Trofeo Am class – for another of its drivers, Jack Brown.
Carroll, de Meeus and Brown were all driving Ferrari 488 Challenge cars, race-prepared at FF Corse’s impressive premises at Silverstone Park.
FF Sporting Manager Tim Mullen said: “It feels amazing to come to Le Mans for the most prestigious event in the Ferrari Challenge Europe and have two wins and three drivers on the podium.
“We wanted to win this one badly, but so did every team, so the FF Corse crew just knuckled down on everything, prepared the cars and the strategy brilliantly, and left the drivers to do what they do.”
This coming Saturday (22 June) two more race teams based at Silverstone Park – Envision Virgin Racing and GEOX Dragon Racing – will be competing in the latest round of the world’s premier electric motor racing championship, FIA Formula E, in Bern, Switzerland.
Envision Virgin, which has recently expanded inside its 11,000 sq ft premises on site, is currently a strong third in the FE teams’ championship.
