That stunning victory stamped the new Ferrari’s authority on the 2011 season, and is a clear indication that the V8 powered, 570 bhp machine, is currently one of the world’s great GT racers.

The car, which is owned by RS Academy, will serve a dual role as a competitively run racing car in the British GT Championship, while offering the ultimate in track day experiences as part of RS Academy’s exclusive fleet of club cars available for members to use as some of Europe’s finest circuits, including Paul Ricard, Spa Francorchampsand the Nurburgring.

RS Academy owner, Rob Stanbury, says: “It’s amazing that we have been able to take such early delivery of a 458 Italia GT3 and it’s equally satisfying to see that it has made an impressive racing debut, but we are most excited about the fact that we can offer this unbelievable car to Club members at some fantastic European circuits. It’s this exclusivity which makes RS Academy a unique player in the high-end track day and supercar club market.”

RS Academy’s unbelievable fleet of cars that are offered to members also includes a mighty new Ascari KZ1R GT3, a Noble M600, Ferrari 430 Challenge car, a new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, an Ariel Atom and the recently announced addition of two all-new Mono sports cars.
