Kaspersky Motorsport have today announced that following a successful two years in the Amateur category it will move into the Blancpain GT PRO class for 2017 where AF-Corse WEC driver James Calado will race alongside Giancarlo Fisichella and Marco Cioci in the new Ferrari 488 GT3 car.

“I’m very happy to be a part of the Kaspersky Motorsport family,” said Calado. “It’s going to be a big challenge for us, but I know the team very well already and I am sure that together with my experienced team-mates, we can have a very good season.

Experienced GT racers Fisichella and Cioci were confirmed as Kaspersky Motorsport drivers towards the end of 2016, while 27 year-old Calado is no stranger to endurance racing, having competed in the World Endurance Championship with AF Corse every year since 2014. Prior to that, the Englishman from Worcestershire raced in single-seaters, finishing third in the GP2 series in 2013, a year in which he was also reserve driver for the Force India Formula 1 team.
