The Ferrari new 488 GT3 and GTE were just unveiled at Mugello. Ferrari is targeting a debut at the Rolex 24, but that is uncertain. An appearance at the November IMSA test seems unlikely at best. Here is a great video showing a 488 GTE livery timelapse. Speculation suggests that Scuderia Corsa will run 1-2 cars in GTD, but likely start the season in the 458 rather than 488 model. Risi is expected to run a 488 in the GTLM class at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. There won’t be many Ferraris in the IMSA field, but the 458 has been a strong horse – including claiming the 2015 IMSA GTD championship with Scuderia Corsa in the hands of Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell.
