Bruni Aiming for Repeat, Calado Debuts
Sunday at Silverstone sees the first round of the FIA WEC series, the World Endurance Championship in which Ferrari will be aiming to repeat its triple title winning exploits of 2013.
This time AF Corse has decided to field two very different crews in the LMGTE PRO category. World Champion “Gimmi” Bruni will team up with experienced Finn Toni Vilander in car 51, while at the wheel of the other 458 Italia GT2, car 71 will be two young drivers. One is a test driver for the Scuderia Ferrari F1 team, the Italian Davide Rigon and the other is the British driver James Calado, who came third in last year’s GP2 championship and has driven in the Friday morning free practice sessions for Force India at five Grands Prix in 2013.
