After 1973, the Italian automobile company, Ferrari, is making a comeback to endurance racing. This also marks the entrance of another global vehicle manufacturer in the Hypercar category of FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) from 2023. Earlier, Toyota, Glickenhaus, Peugeot, Porsche and Audi have committed to participate in it.
Ferrari has an illustrious history in the WEC category where the automobile manufacturer has won Le Mans for nine times. In recent times, the company has mostly focused on the Grand Touring category of sports and has achieved several milestones in it.
In the official statement released by the company, Ferrari President John Elkann commented: “In over 70 years of racing, on tracks all over the world, we led our closed-wheel cars to victory by exploring cutting-edge technological solutions: innovations that arise from the track and make every road car produced in Maranello extraordinary. With the new Le Mans Hypercar programme, Ferrari once again asserts its sporting commitment and determination to be a protagonist in the major global motorsport events” and expressed his excitement over the new endeavour of the brand.
