Alessandro Pier Guidi and Andrea Bertolini have been selected by Ferrari to race for the GTE Pro AF Corse squad in this year's Le Mans 24 Hours.

The two Italians join the #51 and #71 entries respectively, which are the two 488 Italia machines entered for the full World Endurance Championship season.

Bertolini has contested Le Mans for the last four years in GT class Ferrari machinery, winning the GTE Am class with Viktor Shaitar and Aleksey Basov last season, while Pier Guidi will be making his Le Mans debut.

Matteo Malucelli was also recently confirmed by Ferrari to be racing at La Sarthe alongside Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander in the #82 Risi Competizione GTE Pro entry.
