Silverstone-based Ferrari racing and track day specialist FF Corse has announced that it has hired Tim Mullen as its sporting team manager.

FF Corse looks to continue its momentum in GT racing, having won two Ferrari Challenge Europe titles in the past three years.
Mullen is the latest in a series of new hires for FF Corse. He joins team principal Mark McLoughlin (ex-Business Manager, McLaren GT) and operational team manager Jamie Collins (formerly Carlin’s GP3 team manager). company founder Anthony Cheshire meanwhile, will remain managing director as part of this restructure.
“I’m excited to join FF Corse as sporting team manager at a time of expansion for this business,” said Mullen.
“When the chance to link up with Mark McLoughlin, who I’ve worked with before, and support him in helping to enhance the already superb reputation the company has established with Ferrari owners in motorsport, I couldn’t say no. There’s a wealth of skill and experience here already and the plan is to really tap into that to help drive things forward and create a team capable of competing against the best internationally. I can’t wait to see how we move forward together.”
Mark McLoughlin, team principal, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Tim to the team at FF Corse. As a driver he was someone I knew and respected and as a colleague within manufacturer GT programmes, that respect only grew.
“He has both the skills and the experience to help drive our race programmes in GT Cup and Ferrari Challenge Europe forwards and to be the bedrock of what we’re creating for the future; a team capable of building on our successes in Ferrari Challenge Europe and becoming a main contender in International-level GT racing.
“We have several other new members of the team who are joining shortly, which shows how serious we are with this aim, and Tim will be at the centre of this.”
