Following Ben Keating’s World Endurance Championship return announcement, TF Sport can now reveal that the Texan gent will be joined by multiple WEC Champion Marco Sorensen and Porsche Carrera Cup France race winner, Florian Latorre.

 

Aston Martin factory Pro driver Sorensen, has been crowned the FIA WEC Champion on two occasions alongside Nicki Thiim, but now, the renowned ‘Dane Train’ will go head-to- head in the GTE Am class, with Thiim teaming-up with AMR’s Paul Dalla Lana.

 

Silver-graded Latorre has proven his pace in the Porsche Carrera Cup France, claiming five pole positions, an equal amount of fastest laps, eight podiums and a win, in the 2021 season. The 24-year old driver from France made his WEC debut last year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans where he raced with Proton Competition.

 

The 2022 FIA WEC Prologue and season opener takes place at Sebring, USA, with track action kicking off on March 12, with the lights going green on the 1000 Miles of Sebring, on March 18.

 

Tom Ferrier, TF Sport - “It’s great to have Marco back with us for a full season and also to welcome Florian on board. We undoubtably have a very strong line up and are more than ready to battle for both the Le Mans win and the WEC title.”

 

Ben Keating, #33 Bronze driver - “I’m super excited to be back with TF Sport and to have a factory driver and super-quick silver sharing #33! We narrowly missed out last season, but we will be going all out for 2022.”

 

Florian Latorre, #33 Silver driver - “I'm very proud to take part of this adventure. We have everything on our side to have a fantastic 2022. I'm looking forward to sharing this with all the team and to build the best results possible.”

 

Marco Sorensen, #33 Platinum driver - “It will be great getting back in the Aston with Ben and the whole TF crew. I am sure we will get the job done! I already know all the TF guys really well as I have raced with them before. I am motivated and ready to go!”
