Amato Ferrari – who, despite his surname, is not related to the Ferrari dynasty – founded AF Corse in 1995. The Italian racing team quickly established itself as one of the largest and most important in international GT racing. Countless race victories and title wins in the FIA WEC, the GT World Challenge Europe and other racing series underline this. To date, AF Corse has been responsible for six class victories at the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans and also the much-acclaimed overall victory in 2023 with the new Ferrari 499P hypercar.
In the GT Winter Series in winter 2024, the racing team will also field a 488 Challenge Evo. The car will be driven by gentleman driver John Dhillon and international GT ace Matt Griffin.
Last winter, several drivers in the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo already proved that they can upset and defeat the higher-class competitors in the GT Winter Series races. It is to be expected that the 41-year-old Irishman Matt Griffin, who has been competing for AF Corse in various international GT racing series for many years, will be able to do the same, which will make for a particularly exciting field of participants in the GT Winter Series.
