Two AF Corse's Ferrari for GTE Pro category and another two for GTE Am or second round of FIA WEC
AF Corse will line up two Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 in the GTE Pro category, and another two 458 Italia GT2 in the GTE Am category in the “Six Hours of Spa”, second round of the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). In addition technical management of the 8Star Motorsport Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 will be handled by AF Corse, the only Italian team engaged in the WEC and the reigning champions of the GTE Pro; while Ferrari also hold the GT Constructors’ title.
GTE Am – Following the order of the entry list, in the Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 No. 54 are Howard Blank, Yannick Mallegol and Jean Marc Bachelier. For the trio, the FIA Wec represents a new challenge after gaining a lot of experience in the main European GT competitions. At the wheel of the Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 No.61 are Jack Gerber, Marco Cioci and Matt Griffin: the three drivers capable of reaching the top positions. The Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 No.81 will fly the colors of the 8 Star Motorsport team with the drivers Enzo Potolicchio, Rui Aguas and Matteo Malucelli. The trio, at Silverstone, finished in third place; a positive result that could have been better were it not for another car hitting them in the second last lap. What they have already demonstrated puts them amongst the most likely candidates for first place in the category.
