Pier Guidi to replace Bruni at AF Corse

posted in: Announcement, Driver, Homepage, LMGTE-Pro | 0

After dri­ving for Fer­rari at Le Mans every year since 2008, for both class win­ning teams Risi Com­pe­tizione and AF Corse, three time class win­ner Gian­maria Bruni has left the pranc­ing horse in search for a sus­pect­ed Porsche seat in 2018. His replace­ment in the #51 Fer­rari 488 is fel­low Ital­ian, Alessan­dro Pier Gui­di.

Pier Gui­di made his Le Mans debut last sea­son along­side the out bound Gian­maria Bruni, and his team mate for the com­ing sea­son, James Cal­a­do. Despite the car only mak­ing it to just over half dis­tance, Pier Gui­di has tast­ed 24 hour suc­cess before. The Ital­ian won the GTD class of the 24 Hours of Day­tona in 2014 along­side Scott Tuck­er and 2016 LMGTE-AM Le Mans Win­ners, Townsend Bell and Jeff Segal.

Pier Gui­di is the final dri­ver to com­plete AF Corse’s 2017 line up. He joins James Cal­a­do, Davide Rigon and Sam Bird.
