The AF Corse Ferrari 488 No.83 at the top of the LMGTE Am standing. First podium of the No.71 in LMGTE Pro

First seasonal podium for the AF Corse Ferrari 488 No. 71 driven by Davide Rigon and Miguel Molina in the 8 Hours of Bahrain, the fourth round in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2019-2020.

Frankly speaking, the duo could have won the race at Sakhir. Thirty minutes before the end, when the No.71 was attacking the Aston Martin for the race lead of the LMGTE Pro class, the race direction’s forced to a stop&go due to a slight skidding of the rear tyres after the restart from the final pit-stop. The AF Corse Ferrari No.51, at the wheel Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado, took the chequered flag in fourth spot.


In the LMGTE Am category, the fourth-place won by François Perrodo, Nicklas Nielsen and Emmanuel Collard at the end of the 8 Hours of Bahrain allows the trio to return to the top of the drivers’ standings in the class and AF Corse to the top of the team rankings. The 488 GTE no. 83 had to make an extra pit stop in the first few hours due to a technical problem. Once it was resolved, the trio pulled off a magnificent comeback, which they completed with a fourth-place finish ahead of the car no. 54 of Thomas Flohr, Giancarlo Fisichella and Francesco Castellacci.


The FIA WEC will be back on track on 22 and 23 February for the 6 Hours of COTA, the fifth round of the series.
