As a result of its GT title in the Asian Le Mans Series, the DH Racing team earned an automatic invitation to the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans. The outfit will compete in the LMGTE Am class with a Ferrari 488 GTE shared by Tracy Krohn, Nic Jönsson and Andrea Bertolini.
The Hong Kong-based team will debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but the same cannot be said for its three drivers who count 27 participations in the 24 Hours between them, with the "least experienced" member of the squad surprisingly being two-time FIA GT1 World Champion Andrea Bertolini (five starts).
The Italian driver scored a class win in 2015 with SMP Racing's Ferrari 458 Italia in LMGTE Am, while his two teammates, Tracy Krohn and Nico Jönsson, 13th in LMP2 in 2016, 11 participations each, have claimed a class podium finish three times without ever reaching the top step.
After two years in the LMP2 class, the Texas oil magnate and his loyal Swedish teammate will be making their return to LMGTE Am, as did Andrea Bertolini, entered by AF Corse to take the wheel of the new Ferrari 488 GTE in LMGTE Pro (retirement), last year.
