Gianmaria Bruni will change the project a GTE Ferrari for the
Porsche and although neither of the two parties has given official status to a signing that comes to simmer in the last few months, the Italian firm already
working to find a substitute. So much so that as reveals
Endurance-Info’, AF Corse will test four riders on the Ferrari 488 GTE
a test that will take place in Vallelunga. A test that a priori has a great
Spanish flavor as this means the four pilots that are going to be

Leaving aside the contractual issues that you are having Gianmaria Bruni and that according to different sources could delay your arrival at Porsche until well into the season, in regards to Ferrari the prize that is at stake is not exactly small. However, is in contention for the fourth seat as an official driver of Ferrari in the WEC in the GTE-Pro, the entire time that the continuity of James Calado, Davide Rigon and Sam Bird is given by safe.

Alex Banks has a remarkable track record in GT and in addition to its successes in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, his performance in the Asian Le Mans Series at the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GT3 has not gone unnoticed. For his part, Alessandro Pier Guidi also have prior experience in any of the cars in the ‘Prancing horse’, something that you can’t say neither Miguel Molina nor Nyck de Vries despite their good performance in the DTM and in Formula Renault 3.5 or GP3 respectively. All in all, Vallelunga will open a new stage for one of these four riders.
