After a successful debut in the 2017 GT Open championship, the Emil Frey Lexus Racing team will move to the Blancpain GT Series and a new challenge this season. The two RC F GT3 cars will compete in both the Sprint and Endurance Cup races — here’s the driver lineup, taken from the Lexus Europe press release:
Some of the racing driver names driving for Emil Frey Lexus Racing are well known from previous years. Amongst the well-experienced, former Le-Mans winner Stéphane Ortelli (Monaco), there are the former Formula 1 driver Christian Klien (Austria), the German Marco Seefried, the Austrian Norbert Siedler, Markus Paltalla from Finland and one of the Lexus star pilots from 2017, the Spaniard Albert Costa Balboa.
