Italian automotive giant Ferrari has announced it’s return to the pinnacle of sportscar racing in 2023. Ferrari will enter the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) under the new Hypercar rules in 2023. The Maranello-based manufacturer will be looking to triumph at the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours race.
Ferrari has stated that the company has kicked-off the development of the new LMH (Le Mans Hypercar). Ferrari has already started the design and simulation work on the Hypercar but has not revealed any technical details.
In future announcements, Ferrari will reveal details such as track testing programme, name of the car and drivers. Ferrari has a fair amount of experience in endurance racing as the company has run GET class cars in recent years. The last time Ferrari took the outright Le Mans victory was in 1965.
It will be interesting to see how Ferrari’s Le Mans project pans out. The manufacturer already has a good roster of drivers, including the 2019 GTE Pro class winners Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado and Daniel Serra. Ferrari might also look at the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) drivers for its Le Mans journey.
