Following on from his successful 2023 season with TF Sport and Aston Martin in both the European and Asian Le Mans Series’, Ben Tuck will switch to Ferrari power for 2024. In a two pronged attack on the season, Ben will compete not only in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) for the second time, but will also debut in the GT World Challenge (GTWC) Europe series.

New BRDC member Tuck, will be pairing once again with experienced Bronze driver John Hartshorne for both series, joining British team JMW in ELMS and Swiss outfit Kessel Racing for the GT World Challenge, both running the brand new Ferrari 296 GT3.

For Tuck, 2024 represents an exciting new challenge as he will not only be getting to know two new teams and taking the wheel of a new car, but he’ll also be mastering a new configuration, as the 296 is his first taste of mid-engined machinery.

Unsurprisingly, Ben is relishing the challenge – “I’m really excited to get into this year. On the one hand, I’m really happy to continue the partnership with John [Hartshorne] which gives a nice continuation from last year. But I also can’t wait to start to learn about the Ferrari and get the best out of it. It’s obviously going to feel very different from the BMW’s and the Aston Martin I’ve been used to, but I think it will suit my driving style well.”

The two championship calendars will also enable Ben to gain experience of circuits that he has yet to tackle, perhaps most fittingly in Italy with l venues such as Imola, Monza and Mugello.

It won’t be long to wait before Bens busy season begins in earnest, with Round 1 of the GTWC this weekend at Paul Ricard just a week before ELMS Round 1 in Barcelona.
