Ferrari Technicians


When it comes to our Service Team, good enough simply will not do. We employ only the top Ferrari Technicians with the finest pedigrees. Factory training. ASE Master Certifications. Ferrari Challenge Team experience. And that's just the beginning. Some think our Technicians are a bit too obsessed with Ferraris. We feel you can never be obsessed enough.

Wade Williams | Ferrari Master Service Technician

 
 

It's safe to say Wade likes things that go fast really fast which explains how he got his start building racecar engines. But his true passion was always Ferrari, dating back to the day he saw a rare 288 GTO at an open house. As Crew Chief of the Challenge Team, Wade was able to experience the ultimate thrill as his team took first place in a race in Valencia, Spain. Today, Wade incorporates his vast expertise into every Ferrari he services. Yet servicing Ferraris is just the beginning. Over his 19 years at Ferrari of Atlanta, he has restored many vintage Ferraris including a 250 GTE, a 308 Comp car that won at SCCA events, one of only 11 348 Competizione racecars, and every model of Ferrari Challenge car ever made. He even had the privilege of rebuilding the engine, transaxle and brakes of a 1972 36SGTB4 Competizione aluminum body racecar (one of only five that were built), as well as rebuilding its race exhaust to original specifications and restoring the fuel system to race condition. Ask Wade what he thinks about Ferrari and you're likely to hear, "A Ferrari does everything very well. You just need to know how to ask it." By the way, that rare 288 GTO he saw at the open house, Wade continues to maintain that same car today.

Thomas McKellar | Ferrari Technical Director

 
 

If you follow Ferrari closely, you may have heard about the time Thomas won the U.S. Ferrari challenge and received the prestigious honor of being invited to the Ferrari factory in Italy to compete. Or how he was one of the first nine awarded the title of Ferrari Master Technician in 2007. But most of his clients just know Thomas as the trustworthy man who seems to know exactly what your Ferrari needs to run as perfectly as it did the day it rolled off the factory floor sometimes even better.

Thomas started working on Ferraris in 1989, fresh out of tech school in 88 and then married shortly thereafter. He received factory training while working at Monterey Ferrari and was fortunate to be at the first U.S. 345 challenge race at Willow Springs. Those early days of challenge racing was pretty sparse compared to what it has grown into now the longest running factory sponsored spec racing series in the U.S. Later, Thomas was the first technician to be hired by the factory at Ferraris first factory store in Mill Valley, CA, Ferrari of San Francisco. While there, he had the privilege to drive and do minor work on the 125S replica the factory built and displayed along with of the newly revealed 348 spider. Though the majority of his work was on most all the 333SPs being imported and delivered to teams, he was able to put his hands on several early road cars; 166mm, 212 inter, many early and late 250s including a one-off 250 GTO/lusso. As well, Thomas worked on a few early comp cars; 250comp GT, 250 LM, and a couple of 512M s along with providing historic racing track support for a 512M and a Maserati 450S in the Ferrari historic challenge series. To complement this experience, Thomas has lots of hands-on experience with ex Prost, Alesi, Capelli, Berger, and Schumacher Formula 1 cars including factory training from Corse Clienti on starting, handling and servicing customer owned F1 cars. He has worked with Challenge team racing from 348, 355, and the beginning of 360 and had the privilege of working alongside of Phil Hill with his son Derik Hill and Clay Regazzoni to help develop Carol Hollfelders' 355 F1 challenge car. Since joining Ferrari of Atlanta in 2001, he has worked on classic Ferraris, doing mostly all of the Classiche certifications when they come in including a Comp 512M (ex Pam racer), a 275 GTB/4 and several F40s. Considering nearly all Classiche certification cars are worth over $1m, Thomas truly feels honored to work with these Italian treasures.

Richard Winfrey Ferrari Master Technician
 

With a career spanning back to the early 80s, there is little Richard has not seen. And considering Ferrari of Atlanta is the Southeast's premier choice for service and maintenance, that experience comes in quite handy. His love of Ferraris has taken him across the nation, and even the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy. While he loves to learn about new models, his true passion is working with the rare, older models including a 1952 Ferrari 166 and his favorite, the 1967 P3/4. In fact, Richard even reached a career milestone when he serviced a 330 P3/4. Aside from being an accomplished Ferrari Technician, Richard did quite a bit of Ferrari driving instruction while at Ferrari of La Mesa. Ask Richard what his favorite thing about Ferrari is and you'll get a simple, yet passionate answer, For me, there is nothing like experiencing the thrill these cars bring in their element the race track.

Malcom Barnett | Maserati Service Technician
 

Malcolm's passion for cars is one deeply rooted in his DNA, passed down from his father's love of his 1951 Bentley Mk VI. Naturally, this hobby became his career where he found himself restoring, repairing and servicing post-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars. In 2003, Malcolm joined the Maserati of Atlanta family and hasn't looked back especially after getting behind the wheel of the Maserati MC12 for the first time. He truly loves his job and treats every car he touches as if it was his own, earning him the respect and trust of his customers. When customers ask for his advice regarding their Maseratis, they are likely to hear the same thing, "Always service your Maserati at regular intervals. Not only does it help the resale, but it also instills the confidence that the car will always perform as designed."
