TF Sport confirms full WEC entry in 2018/19

8 January 2018

Since its inception in 2014, TF Sport has enjoyed success in GT Racing with championship honours in the Blancpain Endurance Cup, the Michelin Le Mans Cup, and the British GT as well as wins in the European Le Mans Series.

The British team, which enjoys factory support from Aston Martin Racing, has now confirmed that it will contest the full World Endurance Championship for the first time this season. The team will field a single Aston Martin Vantage GTE in the GT-Am category for the full 2018/2019 superseason.

Mounting the campaign will be returning drivers Salih Yoluc and Euan Hankey as well as British driver Charlie Eastwood, who is joining the team on the back of a win in the Carrera Cup GB. The Belfast born driver enjoyed a successful karting background from 2004. He then started his single seater career in Formula 4 in 2014 before taking on the challenge of the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand. A move to Formula Renault followed but it was the move to the Porsche Carrera Cup that brought him onto the GT radar in 2016.

The team’s sporting director, Tom Ferrier, is excited to race in the series. “It’s a huge honour to be competing in the World Endurance Championship next year; it’s by far our biggest ever programme and it underlines the strength of our team at every level,” he said.

“We have had huge success in the past two years in very tough championships such as Blancpain and ELMS so I feel we are ready to move up. We have a really big challenge in WEC but we’re confident that we will be competitive and deliver the results that we, our supporters and partners, now expect from us,” added Ferrier.
