Great news from TF Sport with a return to WEC in 2019/20 confirmed (STC)

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

On a day that has sadly seen the official confirmation that the BMW factory GTE Pro team will now not be returning to the World Endurance Championship for the season 2019/20, it has been great to see Surrey based TF Sport have today confirmed their entry application for another single GTE Am class entry into the Championship for next season.

Having made the progressive steps up the GT ladder over the years, this 2018/19 transitional 'Super-season' was the teams first experience of racing upon the world stage with their 2016 specification Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GTE, a car that has been raced by their trio of drivers with great success to date.

Podiums at Spa last year followed with others at Silverstone and Fuji, culminating with their a class win earlier this month at the 6Hrs of Spa Francorhamps all leave the team with every possibility of lifting the GTE Am Class Championship title by the end of the 24Hours of Le Mans next month.

Team boss Tom Ferrier confirmed that it had always been their intention to continue in the FIA World Endurance Championship and they have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that they remain at the highest level of GT racing. "We have high hopes that our entry will be accepted and that we can return to Silverstone in the new Aston Martin Vantage GTE.” he added.

No drivers have yet been confirmed and all applications are of course subject to official confirmation from the FIA WEC.
