Cassidy new Ferrari driver

Nick Cassidy is a new driver on board a Ferrari in the FIA World Endurance Championship 2022.

The Kiwi will be racing together with Thomas Flohr and Francesco Castellacci in AF Corse Ferrari #54 in the GTE Am category.

That will mark the end of an era, where Flohr and Castellacci have shared a Ferrari 488 GTE with Giancarlo Fisichella since 2017. But it’s getting quite some time since the team has been regular visitors to the podium. There only FIA WEC win was Fuji 2017, and was also on the podium at Nürburgring 2017, Bahrain 2017 Le Mans 2018, Sebring 2019 and Portimao 2021. if you consider that there has been run 31 race weekends in the FIA WEC during those years, it’s quite a disappointing record for the Swiss/Italian outfit.

Cassidy has previously flirted with ACO racing, when he raced for Eurasia Motorsport in the Asian Le Mans Series 2019/20 in the LMP2 category.

His most recent exploits have been in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, but had a successful career in Japan, claiming both the Super GT and Super Formula titles.

The AF Corse #54 will once again race with Vistajet logos predominantly on the car, which is the private company of Thomas Flohr. The team initially raced under the Spirit of Race banner – but the car has always been run by AF Corse.

The FIA World Endurance Championship 2022 is scheduled to start on 18 March at Sebring International Raceway in Florida.
