Albert Costa Balboa will join Manny Franco at Conquest Racing with Ferrari as the full-season driver for the team’s 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD campaign with a Ferrari 296 GT3.

Spaniard Costa comes equipped with a pedigree as a proven race winner across multiple international endurance championships. Notably, he won this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 class with Inter Europol Competition, and went on to finish second in the drivers’ standings with the team in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

“I’m extremely happy to be joining Conquest Racing with Ferrari,” said Costa. “The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is an incredibly important series with a high level of competition, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I’m really looking forward to racing on these old-school American circuits and the challenges that will come with it. I can’t wait to drive the new Ferrari 296 GT3 and I’ll be working very hard with the team to put us on the right path.”

Conquest Racing, after a successful season in GT World Challenge America, announced its entry into the WeatherTech Championship earlier this season, the first full-season Ferrari campaign in several seasons. Cédric Sbirrazzuoli was recently revealed as the third driver for the Michelin Endurance Cup races.
