In 2021, Vilander played a crucial role in Simon Mann’s victory in the Italian GT Championship while, at the Monza round, he returned to the World Endurance Championship. The appearance was a precursor to the full 2022 World Championship programme with AF Corse, sharing the 488 GTE cockpit with Christoph Ulrich and Simon Mann. Alongside Mann and Luis Perez Companc, the Finn will compete in the IMSA Endurance Cup series in the 488 GT3 Evo 2020 of the Piacenza-based team.
Toni Vilander had a double engagement in the 2022 season. After years of winning in the different American SRO series, the Finn tackled the tracks on the calendar of the IMSA Endurance Cup and FIA World Endurance Championship with AF Corse. He put in plenty of good performances, like the one that secured a podium finish at the prestigious 12 Hours of Sebring.
