Riley joins Ferrari Challenge program for 2019


Riley Technologies will partner with Foreign Cars Italia to field an entry in the 2019 Ferrari Challenge Series under the Forza Tecnica banner.

Riley will provide on-track operations and engineering for the team’s Ferrari 488 Challenge car, which will be driven by Brad Horstmann.

“It is great that I am finally going racing with a Ferrari, I have competed against them for many years” said Riley Technologies president Bill Riley. “I have been to Le Mans many times, and would love the opportunity to go back with a Ferrari”.

Foreign Cars Italia is one of the oldest Ferrari dealers in the USA, and next season will be its first team entry in the series.

“We have been evaluating our participation in the Ferrari Challenge series for some time, but we have been looking for the right partners to go racing with” said Foreign Cars Italia Ferrari general manager Corey Cooley.  “We jumped at the opportunity with Riley Technologies and our driver Brad Horstmann when it was presented to us, and we look forward to our inaugural season in Ferrari Challenge”.

The team aims to add additional cars and drivers during the 2019 season, which opens at COTA on March 8-10.
