The Vehicle

Ferrari F430 Spider

The Ferrari F430 that debuted in 2004 was tested on the track and perfected for the street. The 4.3-litre V8 came out of the work done at the Formula 1 racing division.

The convertible version of the F430 (the F430 Spider) has everything the coupe has, plus a strengthened aluminium chassis and two roll bars integrated into the structure of the windshield. And of course, it’s been designed to allow the rear mid-mounted engine to be seen at all times.

Hampton Downs Motorsport Park

The Hampton Downs Motorsport Park is situated in rural northern Waikato (about halfway between Auckland and Hamilton on the Waikato Expressway), New Zealand near the Meremere drag strip and the dirt track club.

Hampton Downs is now arguably the most technically advanced race circuit in the world. The track has a very smooth surface, and a mix of blind bends and crests which make it a challenging circuit for drivers.
