He has previously raced in GT World Challenge Asia with the squad.

2019 ELMS LMP3 Champion Mikkel Jensen replaces Kei Cozzolino in the Championship defending #7 Car Guy 488 GT3, it will be Jensen’s first appearance in a GT3 Ferrari.

Alessandro Pier Guidi will be replaced in the #51 Spirit of Race Ferrari by newly installed Factory GT driver Daniel Serra (below).

And as reported previously on DSC, Aston Martin factory driver Ross Gunn will cede his Asian LMS seat in the #77 D’Station Vantage GT3 to Tom Gamble.

Other changes include Neale Muston replacing Rory Penttinen in the #8 Graff Norma M30, and Nobuya Yamanaka rejoins the #1 Eurasia LMP2 effort for the final round of the Series.
