Ferrari squad JMW Motorsport has revealed an all-new driver lineup for the upcoming European Le Mans Series Season, signing Ben Tuck, Phil Keen and John Hartshorne.

The all-British trio will share the No. 66 Ferrari 296 GT3 in the new-for-2024 LMGT3 class, with JMW making the switch to the 296 after years of campaigning Ferrari GTE machinery in the series.

Tuck and Hartshorne both move across to JMW from TF Sport, where they campaigned an Aston Martin Vantage GTE last year alongside Jonathan Adam.

“I’m really excited to get going with the 2024 season,” said Tuck. “Although I’m looking forward to being back in the ELMS, I can’t wait to get started with JMW.

“To be racing in a Ferrari is a dream come true. I’m also grateful to be teaming up with John once again. We have worked well together in the past and I’m confident we can build on that alongside Phil.”

Keen, best known for his exploits in British GT, meanwhile makes his return to the ELMS for the first time since 2015, when he drove for Gulf Racing.

“I’m delighted to join John and Ben at JMW this year,” said Keen. “I’ve known John for many years now, our last race together was 2009 in the ELMS, so it is great to be back in the championship alongside him.

“JMW’s results speak for themselves, so I can’t get wait to get started.”

JMW finished sixth in last year’s GTE teams’ standings with a best finish of third in the Barcelona season opener, with Martin Berry, Lorcan Hanafin and Jon Lancaster sharing driving duties.

Berry and Hanafin have moved in the opposite direction to Tuck and Hartshorne, joining Grid Motorsport by TF for the new season.
