Molina Joins Spirit Of Race For FIA WEC GTE Am Effort

Castellacci and Flohr's third driver comes from Audi's DTM stable

AF Corse-run Spirit of Race’s driver crew for its 2017 FIA WEC Ferrari 488 GTE Am campaign has been completed, and will feature Francesco Castellacci, Thomas Flohr and Miguel Molina.

Molina is the new name here, the Spaniard joining the team after multiple seasons spent with Audi as part of its DTM programme since the 2010. This season will mark his debut racing in GTs, following a successful trial with AF Corse in the shootout to select Gianmaria Bruni’s replacement in the team’s GTE Pro programme.

Flohr and Castellacci were confirmed prior to this week’s announcement, the duo stepping up to the FIA WEC after competing in the inaugural Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup season last year with a Ferrari 488 GT3.

The trio will be on hand in Monza this weekend for the FIA WEC Prologue test.
