AF Corse has added a Ferrari entry to the 2021 GT World Challenge America powered by AWS with Jean-Claude Saada and Conrad Grunewald. The pair will campaign their #61 Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO for the full season.
Saada won the Ferrari Challenge Coppa Shell North America (2015) and has been a Ferrari Challenge competitor since 2014.
Grunewald took the runner up spot in the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Am class Championship in 2017 with R3 Motorsport.
Jean-Claude Saada: “I have been wanting to run in an endurance series for a while now, and what an opportunity this represents to do so with such a well-recognized series like SRO. I am also deeply honoured and humbled to team up with AF Corse, and my team-mate and friend Conrad Grunewald. Amato and his team have been nothing but First Class. We are looking forward to new adventures, fun races and a great learning experience on some of the most amazing tracks in the United States and beyond.”
Conrad Grunewald: “I’ve had to privilege to work with Jean-Claude since 2018 and it’s great to watch his improvement as a driver. After such a competitive run in Ferrari Challenge in 2020, this seemed like the logical choice. To be running with AF Corse is very exciting as well. Their experience and proven results in Europe should help our transition into GT3”
