Perfect strategy, reliability, and teamwork came together this morning at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California for Flying Lizard Motorsports and Toyo Tires to celebrate a well-earned victory at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. The No. 45 Audi R8 LMS not only clinched the win in the ES class, but also the overall victory by six laps. Coming out of its four year retirement, the No. 74 Toyo Tires / Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 RSR competed in its first 25 Hour to finish second in the ES class, and an impressive third overall.
Entering into its first endurance event, K-PAX Racing has announced its entry into the Motul Sepang 12 Hours with an all Factory Driver lineup from McLaren GT. Alvaro Parente, Shane van Gisbergen, and Côme Ledogar will pilot the McLaren 650S GT3 December 11, 2016.
"This will be a great way to close out an already phenomenal year for us," said Program Manager Darren Law. "Alvaro and the team worked so well together this year in the Pirelli World Challenge Series and to have McLaren GT factory teammates Shane van Gisbergen and Côme Ledogar joining us will give us a very strong driver line up. Everyone at McLaren GT has been a huge help in supporting us and we are looking forward to not only racing some of the best GT3 teams in the world but also being the only American team competing in this event."
