The team will field Mattia Drudi, Ricardo Feller and Dennis Marschall in the endurance races, while in the Sprint Cup the car will be entrusted to Drudi and Feller. In both series the Tresor Orange1 crew will be able to count on the technical management of the car by Attempto Racing GmbH and will take to the track with number #40. Drudi and Feller recently shared the car at the 9h of Kyalami, finishing in third place overall.
Drudi has regularly participated in the GT World Challenge since 2019, the year in which he finished third in the Silver Cup, and last year he defended the Tresor Competition colors in the Endurance Cup. A highly talented driver despite his young age, he conquered the Italian Grand Prix Championship in 2021 Turismo Endurance, twice the podium of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia as well as boasting an innumerable series of successes in the early years with karting.
Feller, who will turn 23 next June, has already won the ADAC GT Masters in 2021 and will continue his experience in the GT World Challenge which has seen him score important results in recent seasons. Second this year at the iconic Bathurst 12h in GT3 Pro-Am, he also raced in VLN, DTM and the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

He too began his career in karting, but he had the greatest satisfactions with the GTs. Second at the ADAC Total 24 hours of Nürburgring in Pro-Am in 2021, he has been racing in GT World Challenge since 2020., making his debut with Tresor Competition last December at the 12h del Golfo.
