WeatherTech Racing drivers Cooper MacNeil, Gunnar Jeannette and Alessandro Balzan took the first laps in Scuderia Corsa’s all-new No. 63 Ferrari 488 GT3 car at the Ferrari test track in Firoano this past week.

Taking the opportunity to get their first taste behind the wheel of the new cr, the trio were happy to exercise the Ferrari before it was boxed up and sent to the team’s shop in California in preparation for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

“Usually we like to get a test on a new car with the entire team at Daytona before the Roar Before the 24,” said MacNeil. “We just couldn’t get the car in time, so we went over and each had the opportunity to put a few laps on the WeatherTech Ferrari before it was shipped.

“The laps certainly instilled some excitement for the upcoming season.”

The team’s driver lineup for the Rolex 24 at Daytona also includes Jeff Segal, who was unable to attend the test last week.
