Toni Vilander and James Calado will complete Risi Competizione’s GT Le Mans class lineup for the Rolex 24 at Daytona, joining fellow factory driver Alessandro Pier Guidi in the team’s No. 62 Ferrari 488 GTE.

Both Calado and Pier Guidi, who drove for the Houston-based team last year as endurance drivers, teamed to win the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship in GT with fellow Ferrari squad AF Corse.

As predicted by Sportscar365, longtime Risi driver Giancarlo Fisichella will not be part of the lineup for Daytona.

Vilander, Calado and Pier Guidi head into the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opener as the only Ferrari entry in GTLM, although the team has expanded to enter a GT3-spec Ferrari 488 in GT Daytona for Miguel Molina, Santiago Creel, Martin Fuentes and Ricardo Perez.

It’s unclear whether either of the team’s GTD or GTLM have been committed for the full season. 

Pier Guidi will be the only driver at the wheel of the GTLM entry at this weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24.
