Emil Frey Lexus Racing to compete with two Lexus RC F GT3 in Blancpain GT Series
Following an exciting season and the very successful debut year of the newly-found Emil Frey Lexus Team and the brand-new RC F GT3, the private race team from Switzerland is launching at full speed into the 2018 season.
The team will move up into the Blancpain GT Series, participating in both the Sprint as well as the Endurance Cup with two Lexus RC F GT3. 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.
Lorenz Frey, Team Principal Emil Frey Lexus Racing: "Even though the Blancpain GT Series is not a new championship for us, it is still a new challenge to compete with two relatively new race cars. Especially the Sprint Cup is something very exciting despite having had a brief visit at last year´s race meeting at Nürburgring. The team is highly motivated, we have strong drivers and can build upon the know-how from last year. We are very excited ahead of the first race."
