AF Corse to enter factory-supported British GT program

0

The factory-supported AF Corse team has announced it will be fielding at least one Ferrari 488 GT3 on the British GT Championship grid on a full-time basis next season.

Duncan Cameron and Matt Griffin will be behind the wheel of the car, having this year campaigned it in the Blancpain GT Series, where they aimed to defend their 2015 Pro-Am crown.

The AF Corse car in 2017 will be the first 488 GT3 to race in British GT on a regular basis, following a one-off appearance for the FF Corse team made at Silverstone this year.

Cameron and Griffin previously competed in the series between 2009 and 2013, claiming six wins and coming third in the 2010 standings. AF Corse, which operates GT programmes worldwide on behalf of Ferrari, also has past British GT experience.

“Duncan was keen on a return to British GT next year; we both have unfinished business and are targeting the title together,” said Griffin. “British GT is where my sportscar career began. I’ve raced all over the world since then but it’s something I’m really excited about returning to. It’s still one of the world’s most competitive GT championships and we’re not taking it lightly. Fortunately teams don’t come much better than AF Corse, who also know the car inside out.”
