Gianmaria Bruni and Toni Vilander will return to AF Corse to defend its GTE-Pro World Championship, as part of a minimum three-car entry in the FIA World Endurance Championship for the Italian squad.

The Amato Ferrari-owned team confirmed to Endurance-Info Tuesday its lineups for the 2015 season, which will see stability across the GTE-Pro class and three of its former drivers returning to the organization in GTE-Am.

Bruni and Vilander, who scored four class wins and the world title last year, will return to the wheel of the No. 51 Ferrari F458 Italia, while the new-for-2014 pairing of James Calado and Davide Rigon will also continue in the No. 71 entry.

Additionally, AF Corse will field at least one full-season GTE-Am entry for Emmanuel Collard, Francois Perrodo and Rui Aguas.

Collard and Perrodo drove for ProSpeed Competition in the class last year, while Aguas focused primarily on GT Asia competition but has now since been reclassified to Silver driver rating for 2015.

Amato Ferrari told Endurance-Info the lineup for the team’s planned second GTE-Am entry has not yet been confirmed.

The entry deadline for full-season FIA WEC entries, as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, is today at midnight France time.
