Krohn, 25, is a BMW GT driver and finished runner-up in ELMS' GTE class in 2015 alongside Henry Hassid and Andy Priaulx.

27-year-old Sims, a race winner in GP3, F3 and British FR2.0, drives a BMW Z4 GT3 in British GT, having helped Marco Attard to the title in 2014.

The youngest name in the line-up - 17-year-old Russell - is another F3 race winner and the 2014 champion of Britain's BRDC F4 category.
