Kessel Racing will return to Blancpain GT Championship next year with at least two new Ferrari 488 GT3s, alongside a possible entry into the Sprint Championship.

The Swiss squad, which won last weekend’s Gulf 12 Hours, confirmed to Endurance-Info plans to enter a pair of the new turbocharged Prancing Horses in the Pro-Am Cup, alongside a parallel 458 Italia GT3 effort in the Am Cup.

While driver lineups have yet to be finalized, a decision on whether the team will also mount an attack on the Sprint Series will also be determined in the coming weeks.

The Ronnie Kessel-led team would become the second Ferrari entrant in Blancpain Sprint, joining Rinaldi Racing, which campaigned the lone 458 Italia GT3 this year.
