TF Sport confirm WEC driver line up for Keating's next WEC Challenge

Wednesday, January 19, 2022


TF Sport filled in some more of their 2022 season blanks earlier today as they confirmed the driver line up that will be supporting Ben Keating in his Aston martin Racing return to the World Endurance Championship and Le Mans 24hr ambitions this season.

Having done so well last season alongside co-drivers Dylan Pereira and Felipe Fraga to take the GTE Am Drivers Championship’s runners up position, this season’s line up shows greater intent from the American businessman as he pairs up with multiple WEC GTE Pro Champion Marco Sorenson and French Porsche Carrera Cup France racer Florian Latorre in his #33 car.

Whilst the driving abilities of Sorensen need no reminding, along a lengthy association with both Aston Martin Racing and TF Sport, Latorre comes to the team a fully enabled Porsche series race winner with experience of the Le Mans 24 having raced there last season with Proton Competition. Latorre also tested the #33 car at the FIA WEC Rookie Test in Bahrain at the end of last season.

With the WEC Season 10 starting as planned over at the Sebring IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship double header weekend in March, there is again little time for any serious amount of testing and that is again why many of the AMR WEC runners are over at Daytona this weekend and next for some early season race training – and not necessarily in an Aston as well.

This news comes on top of TF Sport’s confirmation that the #777 D’Station Racing AMR GTE for Satoshi Hoshino and Tomonobu Fujii will also be back with the Sussex based team for their second season in the WEC with the Aston alongside an as yet unconfirmed silver ranked driver.

Northwest Racing AMR has also already confirmed that Paul Dalla Lana will be back again with the English marque and will also be with a new driver line up as the #98 car will be co-driven by the Canadian businessman alongside the other half of the Dane Train in Nicki Thiim and BMW NLS (amongst other series) racer David Pittard. That is one very strong driver line up in a fully capable race winning car but then again, so is the #33 TF Sport car that was announced today!

This crew is also at Daytona this weekend for the Roar before the 24 Test ahead of next weekend’s Rolex 24!
