Gents, the 2011 Le Mans series is about to begin, and look at what Team Risi Competizione has brought to play. It’s a Ferrari 458 Italia GTC. It will make its debut this weekend for the annual 12-hours of Sebring endurance race in Sebring, FL.
Risi Competizione will be fielding its new 458 with its existing Ferrari F430 GT. Although the 458 is competition ready, it is expected that Ferrari and Risi Competizione will use the 12-hours of Sebring race to do testing and analysis in preparation for the 24-hours of Le Mans.
It should make for an interesting season with the Risi Competizione 458 going to head-to-head against the Compuware Corvette C6Rs, BMW Efficient Dynamics M3s, and Aston Martin Vantage GT2s.
