Completing the line-up will be sim specialists, Danilo Santoro and Jordy Zwiers.

Another huge announcement this afternoon came from across the Atlantic as Corvette Racing confirmed its ultra-impressive line-up with IMSA driver and former Daytona 24 Hours winner Jordan Taylor heading up the No. 63 GTE entry alongside fellow Corvette Racing driver and former WEC competitor, Nicky Catsburg. Sim racers Alex Voss and Laurin Heinrich compete their line-up.
