Ferrari 488 GT3 Scores 500th Podium Finish

91% strike rate!

Race 1 in last weekend’s GT World Challenge America saw Martin Fuentes and Rodrigo Baptista score the 500th podium finish for the Ferrari 488 GT3 with third place in Pro-Am at CoTA aboard their Squadra Corse-run car.

The landmark number comes 4 years after the race debut of the 488 GT3 a racing career that has seen 500 podium finishes (counting both overall and class results) in 547 racing starts, a remarkable 91% strike rate so far.

The next phase of the car’s career looks in good hands too with the 488 GT3 Evo 2020 already a winner in the Asian Le Mans Series, the #27 Hub Auto Corsa car taking pole on its Evo debut at the Bend in January, a first podium next time out in Sepang, and a first win, en route to the GT class title at Buriram, Thailand, last month (the 488 GT3’s 69th international title).

Race 2 at CoTA meanwhile saw the 291st win for the 488 GT3, 300 very much in sight!
