Team principal Giacomo Mattioli confirmed to Sportscar365 that he has handshake agreements with two customers who have intentions of competing in the GT-A class. A formal announcement is expected in the coming weeks.
"We're definitely going to Pirelli World Challenge, with possibly two entries for the full season," Mattioli told Sportscar365. "I think they have a great formula and it's definitely a series that everybody's talking about."
The team made its World Challenge debut at Sonoma Raceway in August with Mike Hedlund, who Mattioli said could race a third Scuderia Corsa-entered Ferrari in select races next year as well.
Mattioli said both of the team's current GT3-based TUDOR Championship Ferraris will be converted to FIA GT3-spec for World Challenge competition, with Bill Sweedler's Prancing Horse to be used as the new No. 63 car in GT Daytona next year.
The Sweedler and Townsend Bell-driven car will be the only full-season TUDOR Championship entry for the team, which will take on an expanded program with the addition of its multi-car World Challenge effort.
"I think they have a great formula," Mattioli said of World Challenge. "They're making a lot of changes to it, so hopefully they haven't added too many races on the calendar as that brings more cost for the drivers.
"It's exciting. I think the single car format is a winning format, to have a GT3 that can compete in both championships." More at Sportscar365
