For the fourth consecutive year, Tubi Style renews its partnership with Ferrari Competizioni GT, marking what promises to be an exceptional year, especially following the triumphs of 2023, including the Le Mans victory. Tubi Style once again played a pivotal role in developing the Ferrari 296 Challenge, now hailed as the highest-performing vehicle in the one-make championship circuit.

The 296 Challenge

This vehicle marks the ninth model in the history of Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, established in 1993. Representing a significant advancement for the Prancing Horse series, the Ferrari 296 Challenge reflects a constant improvement in quality and competition among competitors. This has enabled the Tubi Style team to profoundly refine the model compared to its predecessors.

Following the trajectory of past models, the 296 Challenge is derived from the roadster 296 GTB berlinetta, providing an ideal foundation for racing. Notably, it features a de-hybridized engine for the first time in the history of one-make championships, reducing the car’s weight and pushing it to nearly 700 hp, boasting a record-breaking specific power of 234 hp/l.

Designed for the driver and in full compliance with international FIA competition standards, the car boasts a meticulously studied safety structure, leveraging cutting-edge calculation technologies.

Drawing from the experience gained in developing the 296 GT3, innovative solutions have been applied, pushing boundaries and exploiting regulatory freedom. The result is a car that sets a new benchmark in terms of absolute performance and also delivers unmatched consistency throughout each session.

Tubi Style’s Contribution

We take immense pride in contributing to the success of this record-breaking vehicle! Our commitment to crafting, developing, and designing the competition cars’ exhaust systems remains unwavering.

Compared to the standard configuration, which features an inlet manifold to the turbo with optimized duct lengths, our exhaust design takes a different approach. From the turbos, it adopts the most direct route possible to the rear, which has been redesigned to accommodate the new tailpipe positions. This direct and high-performance design introduces several technical challenges related to the exhaust system’s free oscillation length, all while ensuring maximum performance and reliability through lightweight construction and optimal geometry.

The Ferrari Challenge sponsorship promises an exciting racing calendar this year, featuring a series of memorable stops:

  • May 2-5: Mugello
  • May 30 – June 2: Balaton
  • June 20-23: Jerez de la Frontera
  • July 4-7: Portimão
  • July 25-28: Le Castellet
  • September 5-8: Nürburgring
  • October 16-20: Imola

We’re geared up and ready to go!
