AF Corse will have a massive presence in this year’s European Le Mans Series, with the Italian squad confirming Monday the driver lineups for its six-car in-house program, as well as two additional customer efforts.

A pair of Ferrari F458 Italia GT cars have been entered in the GTE class for Piergiuseppe Perazzini, Marco Cioci and Micheal Lyons (No. 54) and Duncan Cameron, Matt Griffin and Michele Rugolo (No. 55), while four Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 cars will do battle in the five-round championship.

Howard Blank, Yannick Mallegol and Jean Marc Bachelier are set to pilot the No. 62 Ferrari in GTC, while the No. 63 has been designated for Mads Rasmussen and Dennis Lind. Per Nielsen, Christian Overgaard and Francesco Castellacci will share controls of the No. 64 car, with Adrien De Leener and Cedric Sbirrazzuoli set to drive the No. 95 entry.

Additionally, the Amato Ferrari-owned squad will operate the No. 56 AT Racing Ferrari in the GTE class for father-and-son Alexander Talkanitsa, plus Pierre Kaffer, as well as the all-Danish No. 60 Formula Racing Ferrari in GTC, featuring the driving strength of Jan Magnussen, John Laursen and Mikkel Mac.

In addition to its large effort in the ELMS, AF Corse will operate seven cars in the FIA World Endurance Championship, including a two-car factory Ferrari effort in GTE-Pro, with the driver lineup set to be finalized this week.
