Ferrari Driver Academy member Callum Ilott to make Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS debut with Iron Lynx

25 February 2021

2020 Formula 2 Championship Runner-up and Scuderia test driver, Callum Ilott will drive a Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020, entered by Iron Lynx in all the five rounds of the Endurance Cup.

Callum will share the cockpit, with two other contracted Scuderia Ferrari drivers: Competizioni GT works driver and simulator driver for the Maranello team, Davide Rigon and former FDA member Antonio Fuoco, also a simulator specialist for the Scuderia, as well as a driver coach for the Academy students. Over the past three seasons, Fuoco has raced extensively in GT categories, claiming three titles in the Italian championship at the wheel of a 488 GT3.

The FDA (Ferrari Driver Academy) is expanding its sphere of activity and is strengthening its collaboration with Competizioni GT. As a Maranello marque’s division, Competizioni GT is an official entrant in the World Endurance Championship and supports customers, both teams and drivers, competing in GT series. FDA drivers will now have the possibility to integrate the world of sports car racing and  tackle the highest level of GT racing which has traditionally played a significant role in Ferrari’s history and which is destined to become even more important in the near future.
