The pieces on the chessboard of the 2024 FIA WEC season are starting to fall into place. After announcing the start of a new adventure with Corvette Racing, TF Sport is pleased to reveal the two pro drivers supplied by the American manufacturer for the next exciting World Endurance Championship campaign: it will be Daniel Juncadella and Charlie Eastwood who will defend the team's colours in the 2024 FIA WEC season.
Charlie, who was born in Belfast in 1995 and with TF Sport was winner of the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours in the LMGTE AM class and champion of the LMP2 Pro/Am category in the 2022 European Le Mans Series, has already played an important role in the team's history. On the other hand, Daniel - born in Barcelona in 1991 and with a great career in both Formula and GT - will be a newcomer to TF Sport's ranks, with a CV that speaks for itself. Both drivers will be driving one of the brand new Corvette Z06 GT3.R cars, ready to take on the challenge of the new FIA WEC GT3 category. We can't wait to see them in action!
Daniel Juncadella, TF Sport Pro Driver:
“I am enormously excited for this new chapter in my career. Joining TF Sport for the 2024 WEC season is a dream come true. It will be my first time competing in WEC and in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and I can’t wait to meet everyone in the team and get to work. The new Corvette Z06 GT3.R looks like a proper weapon, I look forward to get my hands on it!”.
Charlie Eastwood, TF Sport Pro Driver:
“I am delighted to join TF Sport's WEC campaign in the brand new Corvette Z06 GT3.R It is an absolute honour to be an official Corvette driver and even more to race with the team I have been with since my first endurance race. As always the WEC will be super competitive, but I know we have all the tools to aim for the championship. Qatar can't come soon enough”.
Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Director:
“It is an exciting new chapter for TF Sport with Corvette and we are very happy to welcome Daniel and Charlie to the team as our Pro drivers. Although he is new to us, Daniel needs no introduction: his results in GT3 speak for themselves. Charlie has been an integral part of TF Sport’s success and we are very happy to be able to continue this journey with him in our new challenge. Both drivers bring speed and experience and know how to win and we couldn’t be happier with the choice of driver that GM has supplied us with”.
