Formula Racing stops its European Le Mans Series effort


Formula Racing has confirmed that the team will not return to the European Le Mans Series next year. The privateer Ferrari squad from Denmark has decided to stop their GTE efforts.

The 2015 GTE champions competed this year with the a single Ferrari 458 Italia in all six ELMS events and took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans as well.

The AF Corse-supported car was driven by Mikkel Mac, Johnny Laursen and the 2016 IMSA GT Daytona champion Christina Nielsen, all of them from Denmark.

The three drivers had a mixed season in the ELMS with some ups and downs all season long. They were fast but faced a lot of bad luck in a highly competitive GTE field.

Forumula Racing will be focusing on the Ferrari Challenge in 2017.
