AF Corse will join the British GT Championship next season with a pair of Ferrari 458 Italia GT3s.
The Italian squad, which won the GTE Pro teams' title in this year's FIA World Endurance Championship, will run established series competitors Aaron Scott and John Dhillon.
It is now negotiating with drivers to fill the seats in its second entry.
Team boss Amato Ferrari said: "British GT is an interesting championship and has grown a lot; it is a good championship for our team to join.
"Our project is to send two cars and we already have good contacts for the second car."
Scott, who scored a pair of top six results sharing a Scuderia Vittoria Ferrari with Dhillon this season, said: "I raced in the Blancpain Endurance Series in 2012 [driving an Audi R8 LMS] against AF Corse, so I know all about the team.
"I heard there was a possibility of them coming to the UK. It all fitted together perfectly and we were able to have some easy conversations."
The deal for Scott and Dhillon to drive in Britain with AF was cemented after a successful two-day test with the team at Vallelunga last week.
Amateur driver Dhillon hopes that working with AF will allow him to move to the next level as a driver.
"Due to the success they've had in other series, the team have a winning mentality, but don't apply a level of expectation," he said.
"This will be a good environment for me to learn in and grow, and to have the deal in place before Christmas means we can prepare properly for next season."
