Blancpain GT Series move to Phoenix Racing for British GT race winner Hutchison
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.”
