When you decide to go racing, Maranello Motorsport can support you all the way to the top step of the podium of the Australian GT Championship, if you’re good enough. Racing is a multi-faceted skill that involves as much thinking as it does quick reflexes, and our instructors can instill in you that winning mind-set.
Some Track Day regulars are now racing in the Australian GT Championship in Maranello Motorsport-run cars, including Peter Edwards. “Peter went through the Maranello driver training system and started racing a 360 Challenge then graduated to a 430 GT3, which is a weapon,” Bowe recalls.
Edwards has high praise for Maranello Motorsport and ended up with a pretty handy co-driver at the 2011 Bathurst 12-Hour.
“I never ever expected to be racing at Bathurst, let alone in a Ferrari with John Bowe, who’s a legend. I went to one Track Day to hone my skills a bit but I learnt so much on that first day that I decided to do more Track Days.
“The logical step was to put what I learned into practice on the track and challenge myself. My business life is pretty hectic and I don’t have much time off, but JB (Bowe) and the guys at Maranello made it so easy and the next thing I knew I was on the grid at Bathurst! I’d recommend doing a Track Day to anyone.”
