The #89 Ferrari F430GT is run by the German-based Team Farnbacher, whose LMS exploits date back to 2004. Since 2009 Team Farnbacher has utilized Ferraris, and the F430GT wearing the orange and white over black Hankook livery is the latest to challenge all comers in the LMS GT2 class. This car, #89, secured second place in class (and finishing behind a Corvette to beat other competing GT2 Ferraris) in the grueling 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans, an impressive achievement for any car and a first for a team sponsored by a Korean company. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Hankook Team Farnbacher started out with one of the most competent out-of-the-box GT2 racers out there, sporting Ferrari’s excellent race-prepped 4-liter V8 and with the benefit of continual development stretching back to the earlier 360 GT2 cars. While the engine is de-stroked compared to the road-going F430 in order to meet class restrictions, the power-to-weight ratio is maintained through the use of advance composite body materials and the F430’s stock but very lightweight aluminum chassis. Formidable on paper and a proven success on the track, this Ferrari is not to be trifled with.
