A decade's worth of wait.

The Ferrari 296 GT3 of Risi Competizione outlasted the GTD PRO competition to claim its first win in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, a win in class was not seen since 2014.

Prestigious placings that made the event at the iconic Daytona International Speedway, where the 296 GT3 made its debut a year ago, even more memorable.

This acheivement marks the second 24 hour race-win for the Ferrari 296 GT3, after Frikadelli Racing took the 2023 24 Hours of the Nürburgring.

This marks the end of the 10 year draught since Ferrari scored a win in this classification.

"You see in the footage after the checkered flag. Everyone was crying. Happy."

Pier Guidi - Driver of No.62 296 GT3/2023 Le Mans Winner

For two of the drivers, it was their second major 24-hour race win in a year. Pier Guidi and Calado were part of the 24 Hours of Le Mans squad, along with Antonio Giovinazzi, that took the overall victory in the Ferrari AF Corse 499P.

Daniel Serra, James Calado, Davide Rigon, and Alessandro Pier Guidi were responsible for taking the No.62 296 GT3 to victory.

The No. 62 had shown impressive pace, especially in the heat of Saturday afternoon with Serra at the wheel. But in the end it was running trouble-free while most of their competitors had difficulties.

The recent win marks a staggering 17 class victories overall. Memorable triumphs also include cars like the 458 Italia GT3, the 333 SP, Stirling Moss's Ferrari 250 GT, the F330 P3/P4 and the 412 P.

The fact that it’s only been a year after it’s debut - and the 296 GT3 has two proud 24-hour race wins to it’s name, proves that the ‘picollo V12' is no small matter. Not to forget the Daytona 24 Hours is the first race of the endurance season. So there is plenty more action to come,
