BACK IN BLANCPAIN ENDURANCE : our line-ups !

Blancpain GT Series : Back in Blancpain Endurance, our line-ups ! 

  • BMW M6 GT3 : Karim Ojjeh, Philippe Steveny, Marc Rostan
  • Lamborghini Huracan Evo GT3 : Claude-Yves Gosselin, Pierre Feligioni, Renaud Kuppens

Engaged in SRO championships since 2012, our team is making its comeback in Blancpain Endurance this season, after winning the Blancpain GT Sports Club title last year! 

Karim Ojjeh, loyal to our team for 7 seasons, and 2018 winner of GT Sports CLub, is delighted to be back in Blancpain Endurance on the BMW M6 GT3. The Saudi will team up with the Belgian driver, Philippe Steveny, who competed in the Procar championship under our colours more than 20 years ago... The third driver will be the Frenchman, Marc Rostan, who is used to the Blancpain platoons.

As last year, our team will represent 2 different brands... as the 2nd car will be the brand new Lamborghini Huracan Evo of French drivers Claude-Yves Gosselin and Pierre Feligioni, joined by the Belgian driver, Renaud Kuppens who will make his big comeback in competition for the Endurance races. Participation in the Sprint races will also be part of the Lamborghini's programme.

Karim Ojjeh: "GT Sports Club was a great way to learn the car.  Having been racing since 2002, I can only strongly advise an AM driver who wants to excel in his craft to go through GT Sports Club.  Having won it, I have some unfinished business in Endurance!”

Philippe Steveny"I am happy! »

Claude-Yves Gosselin likes to joke : "After our overwhelming domination at Zolder in Blancpain Sprint 2018, we thought...we'll pound them for a whole season!... »

Renaud Kuppens: "Very happy to be back after a few years of absence. The opportunity presented to me, following the meeting with Pierre Feligioni and Claude-Yves Gosselin who will be my teammates thanks to the Boutsen Ginion Racing team, motivates me to give the best of myself. Wearing the #Ride4TIMO, at the wheel of the new Lamborghini Huracan Evo, will be an honour. »

 

See you at Paul Ricard, on March 13 and 14 for the first official tests and in Monza, on April 13 and 14 for the first race of the season!
