Montreal, 6 June – The North American Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli continues with the fourth race of the 2014 season at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve from June 6-8, running alongside the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix. The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a long standing favorite for Ferrari Challenge drivers, thanks to the enthusiastic crowds that this event is known for. A diverse field of 32 drivers representing the US, Canada, Mexico, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Columbia, and Sweden will carry on the Challenge series on yet another iconic North American track.
The Ferrari Challenge kicked-off the season with a support race at the renowned Daytona 24 Hours, then traveled to the Sonoma Raceway in the heart of California wine country, and then moving down the California coast to Laguna Seca last month. After Montreal, the next race will stay in Canada at the picturesque Mont Tremblant from June 27-29.
Looking at the situation in the two championships, last round in the Trofeo Pirelli division saw Mexican Ricardo Perez (Ferrari of Houston) winning race two and increasing his gap over Damon Ockey (Ferrari of Ontario) to 19 points, 81 to 62. Third is Ryan Ockey with 59 points. In the Coppa Shell division Chris Ruud (Ferrari of Beverly Hills) won both races in Monterey bringing to 33 points his advantage over Jon Baker (Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale) while James Weiland (Ferrari of San Francisco) is third on 67.
The first of the two races this weekend will take place Saturday morning, with the second adrenaline packed race scheduled for Sunday, shortly before the start of the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.
