In 2010, the driver joined the Superstars Series with the CAAL team. Driving a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG, he collected four wins and 10 podiums in 20 races, resulting second in the International Series and third in the Italian Championship.

At the 2011 Superstars Series, Ferrara got one win and eight podiums in 18 races. He ended again runner-up in the International Series and third in the Italian Championship.

The Italian only competed in two rounds of the 2012 season: Spa-Francorchamps with CAAL and Pergusa with Roma, in both cases with a Mercedes-Benz. He finished second and fourth out of four races, and resulted 16th in the International Series.
