Emil Frey Racing is delighted to have filled the last two cockpit positions for the 2024 season. The Swiss team has brought in the previous year´s ADAC GT Masters runner-up Alain Valente into the team alongside Jean-Luc D’Auria. Emil Frey Racing will therefore contest the ADAC GT Masters, which kicks off at the last weekend of April in Oschersleben, with a Swiss driver duo.

In the Italian GT, the young Finn Luka Nurmi will line up alongside Jasin Ferati, the 2021 Ferrari Challenge world champion.

The season starts with a sprint weekend in Misano on the first weekend in May.

Emil Frey Racing looks forward to working with Alain Valente and Luka Nurmi.

Alain Valente (Switzerland): “I’m delighted to be competing in the ADAC GT Masters for the second year in a row. Last year, I was runner-up in the championship and would now like to build on these results again together with Emil Frey Racing and Ferrari. I am very proud to be part of the team. I didn’t know my new team-mate Jean-Luc D’Auria before our first day of testing together, but I’m really looking forward to working with him. He makes a very good impression with enormous speed, and I think that if everything fits together, we can achieve something good. I’m hoping for a few race wins and of course to be right at the front at the end of the championship – and we’ll do everything we can to achieve that.”

Luka Nurmi (Finland): “As runner-up in the Pro-Am class in 2023, I am obviously aiming to win the series in the Pro class. It will be challenging, but together with Emil Frey Racing we will work hard to achieve this. But of course, it’s all about developing as a racing driver and the Emil Frey Racing Academy is the best place to do that. And I am very happy that the team will be working with AF Corse, a family that I have got to know very well over the last four years. It is always a privilege to drive a Ferrari. My favourite track is undoubtedly Mugello. I won the Ferrari Challenge world title there in 2021 and I’ve always been very strong there.”
