Frédéric Balaresque started his professional career in 1981 at the Ferrari dealership, Daverat, in Bayonne. He then received an exceptional training at the Ferrari importers, Charles Pozzi in Paris, then directly at the Ferrari factory, Via Trento e Trieste in Modena, under Signore Fiorini (Customer technical competition director) where he participated in the rebuild of one of the 288 GTO mules.
He then returned to the now Ferrari-Jaguar dealership in Bayonne as Chief Mechanic.
Since 1993, he has specialised in high end, classic and sports cars. He is often found at race meetings either as team mechanic or driver at the wheel of a Ferrari, Alfa or AC Cobra.
