Ferrari Formula 1 test driver Callum Ilott is set to participate in a handful of GT-based races in 2021.
Ilott, backed by Ferrari’s Driver Academy since 2018, finished runner-up to Mick Schumacher in last year’s Formula 2 championship.
The Briton missed out on a race seat for 2021 but took up the role of Ferrari’s test driver.
On Monday the manufacturer revealed that he is set to partake in some sportscar events this year alongside his Formula 1 commitments.
A full programme has not yet been outlined.
Ferrari has a presence in the GTEPro category of the World Endurance Championship though its four full-time drivers have already been confirmed.
One of Ilott’s predecessors in the Ferrari test role, Antonio Giovinazzi, also kept active in sportscars during his absence from a full-time single-seater drive.
As with Giovinazzi, Ilott is set to take part in a handful of FP1 outings this year at grands prix.
Ilott was due to make his FP1 debut at the Nurburgring in October but his proposed run with Haas was abandoned due to bad weather.
He has previously tested Formula 1 machinery with both Ferrari and customer squad Alfa Romeo.
