1 Mins read

AF Corse will have a presence in the new Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup series run by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest.

The Italian team will run three cars in the 2016 season: one new Ferrari 488 and two older-spec Ferrari 458 Italias.

The 488 will be co-driven by Thomas Flohr and Francesco Castellacci, who raced together in the European Le Mans Series last year.

Felipe Barreiros/Mads Rasmussen and Adrien de Leener/Pierre Marie de Leener are the driver pairings for the two 458 Italia entries.

Rasmussen also competed in the full ELMS campaign last year, finishing third in the GTC category. He was joined at selected rounds by Barreiros and Adrien de Leener in the #64 Ferrari 458.

The Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup is a new championship organised by the ACO as part of the 2016 European Le Mans Series support package.

Six races make up the 2016 Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup schedule, including a race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. The series will hold an official test session at Paul Ricard on March 19-20.
