KEATING SIGNS FOR FIA WEC 2021 WITH TF SPORT AND ASTON MARTIN
Ben Keating switches his GTE of choice to Aston Martin, as he enters the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship with TF Sport. The ultra-talented Bronze driver will be joined by 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Silver Cup champion, Felipe Fraga and 2020 Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and Porsche Mobile 1 Supercup vice-champion, Dylan Pereira.
2020 vice-champions, TF Sport will once again enter the GTE Am class of the FIA World Endurance Championship, as they aim to go one step higher in the standings and repeat their Le Mans winning performance of last year.
Texas-based Keating is kicking off his season this week in the USA, as he takes on IMSA’s Roar before the Rolex 24 and the Rolex 24 at Daytona, in TF Sport’s Aston Martin GT3 alongside Charlie Eastwood, Richard Westbrook and Maxwell Root.
Keating has proven himself to be one of the fastest Am drivers in the GTE field, and alongside two strong teammates, the line-up is sure to produce great results this season.
The 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship opening round will take place in Sebring, USA, on March 19.
Tom Ferrier, Team Owner - “There isn’t many bronze drivers in the world that can top Mr Keating! He’s fast, fit and hungry. He brings two great team mates in Dylan and Felipe to the party. I hope with our car, team and drivers we can deliver the World Championship title that eluded us in 2020 and repeat the Le Mans victory. Everyone at TF is really excited to get started!”
Ben Keating, Bronze Driver - “I am very excited about 2021! The whole program, Daytona and WEC, came together at the same time and joining TF, along with Aston Martin meant that I had great options for many of my goals. I have always enjoyed working with Tom Ferrier, and once 4 Horsemen Racing came along as a partner for the WEC program, it was an easy decision! This will be my seventh year in a row at Le Mans and it will be my seventh different car to drive! This sport, this series, and this class is so awesome! It is the only place I know of where a guy like me can compete on the same field, at the same time, in the same game with the best in the world, and still be crowned World Champion, which is the ultimate goal for this season!”
4 Horsemen Racing, Sponsor - “We love everything about cars, performance, and style, and have aligned with the most successful parts and performance manufacturers in the world. Our vision is to continue that alignment in the motorsport industry and hence, the partnership with Ben Keating and TF Sport was born. We are thrilled to get behind a team that is passionate about what they do and that reflects the same values and commitment that we uphold at 4 Horsemen Racing. We consider them the best of the best and can't wait to see them on several podiums this season!”
