TF Sport has signed Aston Martin Racing factory drivers and 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship GTE-Pro champions Nicki Thiim and Marco Sorensen for its British GT Championship entry.

Thiim and Sorensen, who co-drove the No. 95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE in WEC this year, will be the Pro drivers in each of TF Sport’s two Aston Martin Vantage GT3s.

Thiim already competed with the Tom Ferrier-led outfit in the European Le Mans Series this season and will partner Mark Farmer, while Sorensen has been paired with Derek Johnston.

Johnston won the 2016 British GT championship alongside Jonny Adam, who will move to Optimum Motorsport for the 2018 season.

“This should be a lot of fun, it’s an amazing opportunity,” said Thiim. “I’ve met Mark and he’s an interesting guy.

“He told me – I think it was at Sebring – about many of his races and he’s obviously quick, so I look forward to working with him in the new year!

“From my side, it’s all about new challenges with Aston Martin. We had a great time with TF Sport in the ELMS this year, and this will be the same.”

Both Thiim and Sorensen are also set to return to AMR’s WEC program for the ‘Super Season’, alongside Adam, Darren Turner and new signings Maxime Martin and Alex Lynn.
