1 Mins read

German Pierre Kaffer has joined CRS Racing as a third driver for the Le Mans Series.

He will join drivers Pierre Ehret and Phil Quaife in their Ferrari 430 for the opening two races of the season, the eight hour race at Paul Ricard and the 1000km of Spa-Francochamps.

Kaffer brings a wealth of Ferrari experience to CRS Racing (previously known as CRS Scuderia) having raced for American team Risi Competizione a period where he also won the GT2 class at both the 12 Hours of Sebring and Le Mans.

It's great for us to have Pierre driving with us,” said Andrew Kirkaldy, CRS' Team Director. “GT2 is looking very competitive this year so we are pleased to have two very strong line-ups for CRS Racing's first season in the Le Mans Series.”

“I have heard lots of positive things about CRS and I have known Andrew [Kirkaldy] for a long time,” said Kaffer. “It will be good to drive with Pierre [Ehret] again as we fit well together and I know we will have a lot of fun. From the outside the package looks good. Even though the entry list is very strong in GT2 this year I am confident we can have some good results.”

Kaffer will get his first public drive in the car on the Official Le Mans Series test day at Paul Ricard on March 7-8.
