On 21st August 2011, Jaime Melo and Toni Vilander would take the 458 GT to its first Stars and Stripes victory, winning the round at Road America in Wisconsin. The Risi Competizione team’s car was victorious in the GT class, beating BMW and Corvette, proving it was also competitive in this series. Also present in Elkhart Lake that day was the Ferrari MD, Amedeo Felisa, who thus witnessed first hand the efforts of the privateer team that raced and won with his cars all over the world.

The Road America win was the only one that year, but in 2012, the 458 GT took two more wins, in Mosport with Scott Sharp and Johannes van Overbeek and at the Petit Le Mans, where the Extreme Speed Motorsport’s usual crew was also able to count on Toni Vilander.
