Krohn Racing is set to make its return to the European Le Mans Series, with a full-season program having been confirmed with a Ferrari 488 GTE car.

Tracy Krohn, Nic Jonsson and Andrea Bertolini will team up in an AF Corse-run Ferrari for the six-round championship, according to team principal Amato Ferrari, who revealed to Endurance-Info plans for two-car supported GTE campaign.

Krohn, Jonsson and Bertolini took part in last year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in an AF Corse-run, DH Racing-entered Ferrari, finishing 13th in class.

It will mark Krohn’s return to the ELMS after a one-year hiatus, when the team was last present in the LMP2 ranks with a Ligier JS P2 run by Greaves Motorsport.

The Texan focused his racing efforts on selected VLN and 24H Series races last year, in addition to the one-off outing at Le Mans.

It’s believed an entry request for Le Mans has again been submitted.

Amato Ferrari, meanwhile, confirmed that it will also enter a Ferrari for Spirit of Race, with the unchanged lineup of Duncan Cameron, Matt Griffin and Aaron Scott.

    What ever happened to Greaves? They were very successful for a while and then just disappeared.
