Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish GT race win­ner Fin­lay Hutchi­son will com­pete in the Blanc­pain GT Se­ries this sea­son for Phoenix Rac­ing in an Audi R8 LMS.

The 18-year-old took vic­tory in the Bri­tish GT sea­son fi­nale last year at Don­ing­ton Park aboard a Mclaren 570S GT4 run by Equipe Ver­schuur, as well as wins in the GT4 Euro­pean Se­ries.

He has al­ready tested the Audi R8, which will be run by for­mer DTM and GT3 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship win­ners Phoenix Rac­ing, in Por­ti­mao at the end of 2018.

“Ev­ery­thing went very well in the test and the car was awe­some,” said Hutchi­son.

“It’s ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic to be step­ping up into the Blanc­pain GT Se­ries in GT3 this year, es­pe­cially with such a suc­cess­ful and ex­pe­ri­enced team as Phoenix Rac­ing, and it’s great to have the op­por­tu­nity to race an Audi R8 which is a proven car at this level. It’s a re­ally solid car, a proper race car.”
