Craig Lowndes will have a former Spa 24 Hours winner in his corner when he takes on the Belgian endurance classic later this month.

AF Corse has confirmed the full four-man driver line-up for its #52 Ferrari 458, with Italian Andrea Piccini joining the squad.

The 35-year-old Piccini has a wealth of experience at the Spa 24 Hours, winning the 2012 edition of the event with the Phoenix Audi squad.

He also has recent knowledge of 458 GT3s courtesy of appearances in the European Le Mans Series and Spain’s GT Open.

The Pro-Am Class Spa entry is completed by drivers Steven Wyatt and Michele Rugolo, who are regulars in AF Corse’s World Endurance Championship line-up.

AF Corse has entered four Ferraris in the Pro-Am Class and a further two in the Gentleman Trophy.

A total of 19 458s are set to feature in the 60-strong Spa field, although none are among the 18 cars set to do battle for outright honours in the Pro Cup.
