Robert Schwartzman will make his sports car racing debut as part of AF Corse’s lineup in Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup.

The 23-year-old, who races under an Israeli license, has been part of Ferrari’s Driver Academy since 2017.

He will combine his new role in GT3 racing with his ongoing commitments as reserve driver for the Ferrari Formula 1 program.

Schwartzman will share a Ferrari 296 GT3 with Alessio Rovera and Hypercar driver Nicklas Nielsen.

It is set to be his first season in GT machinery, having spent his entire career thus far racing in various single-seater championships.

A second car will be driven by Davide Rigon, Daniel Serra and Antonio Fuoco, while an additional entry in the Pro-Am class consists of Jeff Machiels, Louis Machiels and Andrea Bertolini.

With the departure of Iron Lynx to Lamborghini, AF Corse will once again represent the Prancing Horse in the Endurance Cup’s Pro category for the first time since 2020.

The team is yet for a double effort with new machinery this year, combining its GT World Challenge program with spearheading Ferrari’s return to the top class of prototype racing in the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Hypercar class.
