Iron Lynx, the Italian based racing team, will once again be competing in the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC).
The sportscar racing series, which includes the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans, will be competing with two cars in the GTE Am class this season, with Claudio Schiavoni being the first driver to be announced, driving the #60 car.
The 2022 season will also see the #85 Iron Dames car competing in a special project created and led by Deborah Mayer, supporting women in motorsport. The team will be competing this year as an independent racing outfit, with Rahel Frey being the first driver to be announced for the team, driving the pink #85 Ferrari 488 GTE Evo.
There will be further announcements about the other driver line ups in the coming weeks which will be made via the Iron Lynx and Iron Dames social media channels.
Iron Lynx will also be supporting the renowned PREMA ORLEN Team for its first outing in endurance sportscar racing in the FIA WEC LMP2 category, with former Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica, Lorenzo Colombo and Louis Delétraz driving the ORECA 07 in this exciting new project for both teams.
Team principal, Andrea Piccini, commenting on the announcement, said:
“We’re thrilled to announce our return to FIA WEC this season to compete in the GTE Am category and support PREMA ORLEN Team with their first venture in Endurance racing in LMP2. Both teams have put in a tremendous amount of hard work over the winter months and we’re confident that our passionate teams and talented drivers can lead us in the fight for victory in 2022.”
