While the 499P is the focus of media and fan attention, Ferrari likes to point out that it is not its only race car that will make its racing debut this year. The 296 GT3 will make its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona (28-29 January) next week.

To see it in Europe, however, we will have to wait. But the prancing horse company intends to make headlines with the first campaign of its new weapon in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup.


Robert Shwartzman, who will compete in the Endurance Cup with Alessio Rovera and Nicklas Nielsen for the AF Corse team, enters the production-derived GT car championship. It is a new adventure for the talented twenty-three-year-old who trained in the Ferrari Driver Academy and will continue as a reserve driver for the Formula 1 team in 2023 – a role he shares with Antonio Giovinazzi. Shwartzman will drive the 296 GT3 in some of Europe’s most demanding endurance races, including the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in July.


In the same series, Davide Rigon, Daniel Serra and Antonio Fuoco will constitute a second crew with AF Corse.


The continental series will also see Andrea Bertolini line up in the Endurance Cup with Louis and Jeff Machiels in the same Piacenza-based team’s car. The forty-nine-year-old from Sassuolo will thus continue to feature in the Pro-Am class, where in 2022, he won the Drivers’ title with Louis Machiels and Stefano Costantini.
