Dilawri, Canada’s largest automotive group, and Rossocorsa Racing, a major player in Ferrari Challenge Europe, announce a new joint venture to create a North American racing team called Dilawri Rossocorsa.
For Dilawri, entering the world of motorsports reflects the company’s commitment to its partnership with Ferrari, according to company officials. In 2022, Dilawri entered the U.S. market with the acquisition of Ferrari of Washington.
Rossocorsa Racing is the sports division of the Rossocorsa dealership, which was established in Milan in 1994. In making its debut in an overseas series, the group is extending its global motorsport activities.
A mainstay in Ferrari Challenge Europe for more than 30 years, Rossocorsa Racing has claimed 15 drivers titles and six titles at the Finali Mondiali Ferrari.
“Having the right partner is vital to the success of any new venture, and we are thrilled to be joining the world of Ferrari Challenge racing with one of Europe’s best,” said Kap Dilawri, co-founder of Dilawri.
Ferrari of Washington will be the official supplier of drivers, customers and parts for the Dilawri Rossocorsa team, which will have its own full complement of service technicians for the Ferrari Challenge cars. In addition to being one of the oldest Ferrari Dealerships in the U.S., the location is the only authorized Ferrari dealership in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
“From our first discussions, it was clear that our shared values, dedication and drive made Dilawri and Rossocorsa Racing a natural fit for this partnership,” said Andrea Zadra, CEO of Rossocorsa Racing and Dilawri Rossocorsa’s inaugural team lead. “This joint venture will allow us to establish ourselves as a force to be reckoned with in North American motorsports—a first for both organizations, and an exciting next step.”
