AF Corse will enter a single Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, featuring factory drivers Nicklas Nielsen and Toni Vilander.

Announced on Monday, the GTD class entry will also feature the return of Luis Perez-Companc and three-time Italian GT Pro-Am champion Simon Mann.

The No. 21 Ferrari will run alongside the previously announced AF-operated Cetilar Racing campaign, which has been confirmed for the four Michelin Endurance Cup races.

Mann and Vilander are set to contest a full FIA World Endurance Championship effort in GTE-Am this year, with Daytona set to be a warm-up race for the duo.

Rumors of additional AF Corse entries for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season opener appear to have not materialized.

Sportscar365 understands that Ferrari will still likely be represented in the new-for-2022 GTD Pro class but with an entry from Risi Competizione.
