Ferrari has committed to the remainder of the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli with a pair of AF Corse-run Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020s, in the manufacturer’s bid for the series’ title.

Confirmed on Monday, Ferrari will be represented in both the Indianapolis 8 Hour and Kyalami 9 Hour with two factory-supported GT3 entries following Iron Lynx’s success at the season-opening TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa.

Alessandro Pier Guidi, Nicklas Nielsen, and Come Ledogar — winners in the Iron Lynx entry at Spa — will compete as a trio in one car alongside Antonio Fuoco, Alessio Rovera and Callum Ilott in a second AF entry for next weekend’s Indy 8H.

Drivers for the season-ending round in South Africa on Dec. 2-4 have yet to be announced.

The two entries, wearing AF Corse’s traditional Nos. 51 and 71 number plates, will be supported by Francorchamps Motors.

Ferrari is one of five brands eligible to score manufacturer points in this year’s truncated global GT3 championship, alongside Audi, Mercedes-AMG, Lamborghini and Porsche.

Each manufacturer can nominate a maximum of four cars to score points at Indianapolis, although only its top two finishers will collect them.

Ferrari currently trails Audi by 15 points in the championship.
