TF Sport just keep getting busier with new ELMS entry

Thursday, February 03, 2022


Ahmad Al Harthy, Sam De Haan and Marco Sørensen team up for the 2022 European Le Mans Series in the #69 Oman Racing with TF Sport Aston Martin Vantage GTE.

This season Al Harthy and De Haan will make their GTE debut and who better to partner them, than two-time World Endurance Championship champion, Marco Sørensen. All three drivers will be debuting in the European Le Mans Series, where they will contest in the GTE class.

As previously announced, Al Harthy and De Haan are set to compete in the Asian Le Mans Series this month, and the duo will use the four, four-hour races as preparation for their ELMS title battle.

The first round of the 2022 European Le Mans Series takes place at Paul Ricard, France, where the Oman Racing trio will battle in the 4 Hours of Le Castellet. All races throughout the season will be streamed live, and for free via the ELMS YouTube channel.

Ahmad Al Harthy, Bronze Driver - “I’m delighted to finally be stepping up to the GTE class with Oman Racing with TF Sport! It is great to have a full-season programme in place and I’m really looking forward to be racing alongside Sam and Marco. I’m very proud to be able to represent Oman on the European Le Mans Series stage and our aim, as always, is to get as many strong results as possible, in view to challenging for the title at the end of the season."

Sam De Haan, Silver Driver - “This next step in my racing journey will be the biggest yet, but it is also the most exciting. GTE competition is what I have been working towards, with the ultimate goal to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The team we have around us for this new programme is truly world-class, and it is great to be competing with Oman Racing with TF Sport alongside Ahmad and the hugely experienced and talented Marco. The results speak for themselves, and between him and TF Sport, they know how to get the absolute best out of the Aston Martin. I’m really excited to see what we can achieve this year.”

Marco Sørensen, Platinum Driver - “I’m excited to be joining TF Sport for yet another full-season championship. We have such a great line-up and with the successes that Ahmad and Sam have had previously with the Vantage GT3, I know they will be right at home in the GTE!”

Tom Ferrier, TF Sport - "We have an incredibly strong line up in Ahmad, Sam and Marco and I have no doubt that they will be pushing for the championship title. Ahmad and Sam will have the Asian Le Mans Series under their belts to gel together as teammates, and despite them both being new to the GTE, they have claimed successes in the Vantage GT3. So by having two-time WEC champion Marco on hand, the transition to the GTE will be seamless, I'm sure!"
