Fassbender in the Ferrari fast lane

Actor Michael Fassbender Races with Ferrari.Hollywood star Michael Fassbender has stepped into a real-time role as a Ferrari racing driver.

The Steve Jobs and 12 Years a Slave actor has successfully completed the first round of the 2017 North American Ferrari Challenge racing series.

A lifelong fan of Ferrari and Formula 1, 40-year-old Fassbender began his training with Ferrari’s “Corso Pilota” driving program last year.

“Ferrari is defined by racing, and training with the Ferrari team gave me a great foundation to hone my skills behind the wheel of the 488 Challenge race car,” says Fassbender.

“From a very early age I idolized Ferrari and its champion, Michael Schumacher, in particular, so now racing in the Ferrari Challenge brings that dream full circle.”

A single-model championship series developed by Ferrari for clients who have a passion for racing, the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli has thrilled drivers and fans alike since its inception in 1992.

The Challenge is run in three divisions – Europe, Asia, and North America – and is an ideal platform for drivers who have a passion for racing. Fassbender is competing in the North American Ferrari Challenge series.
