Red Earth, Red Line

One of the most important wins in the long career of the Ferrari 333 SP was in the fall of 1998 when Doyle Risi Racing’s example won the inaugural Petit Le Mans. The trio of Wayne Taylor, Eric van de Poele and Emmanuel Collard beat off strong opposition on the way to victory in this instant classic.

The race was also important in giving the world the concept of taking the rules governing Le Mans 24 Hours and exporting them to other track and series. Thus we have been lucky enough to see the American Le Mans Series over the years that followed.
