John Elkann, Chairman and CEO of Ferrari said, “in over 70 years of racing, on tracks all over the world, we led our closed-wheel cars to victory by exploring cutting-edge technological solutions: innovations that arise from the track and make every road car produced in Maranello extraordinary.
“With the new Le Mans Hypercar programme, Ferrari once again asserts its sporting commitment and determination to be a protagonist in the major global motorsport events,” he added.
Ferrari will join brands like Toyota and Peugeot in the hypercar class, while Audi, Porsche and Acura will compete in the LMDh class.
