Ferrari had a very good year in 1998, and the firm chose the Geneva Auto Show as a forum to announce all the good tidings from the previous year. Ferrari gave the 360 Modena its world public launch. This new car will go on sale in late Spring, 1999, and replaces the Ferrari F355.

The ISRS events seem to be tailor-made for the F333 SP, and eight of them were on hand for the second round at Monza. The winners were Collard/Sospiri in the Jabouille-Bouresche F333 SP, s/n 023, and while they had to do battle with their seven brethren, and a host of x-brand competitors, they held out to the end.
