An updated scrutineering schedule for the Le Mans Test Day confirms that the team has switched to a turbocharged Prancing Horse, after numerous years with its tried-and-trusted Ferrari F458 Italia GT. 

While its driver lineup has yet to be announced, Robert Smith, Jody Fannin and Jonny Cocker are listed to drive JMW’s Ferrari F458 Italia in this weekend’s European Le Mans Series race at Monza.

Smith, meanwhile, is the nominated driver for the GTE-Am class effort for Le Mans.
