Pasin Lathouras Announces Blancpain GT Programm


Pasin Lathouras is pleased to announce that he will contest the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup this year; the Thai will drive a new Ferrari 488 GT3 for AF Corse.

Blancpain GT Series is regarded as the most competitive sportscar championship in Europe as well as one of the leading 'GT' series worldwide, and will therefore provide the perfect platform for the 22-year-old Thai driver to continue to pursue his career upwards.

This will be Pasin’s third season racing in Europe. He was Ferrari Challenge Asia-Pacific Vice-Champion in 2012 and Champion in 2013 before he switched continents, competing in the British GT Championship in 2014 and then International GT Open in 2015.

8 heroes, one mission - Esteban Ocon becomes latest member of Mercedes-AMG DTM Team


The Mercedes-AMG DTM line-up for 2016 can be neatly summed up as the status quo - with an added dash of French flair. After winning the drivers' and team championship last season, the Mercedes-AMG DTM team will retain seven of the eight drivers for the 2016 season.

19-year-old Esteban Ocon will be a new face on the grid, but the Frenchman is no stranger to the Mercedes-Benz family. As a Mercedes Junior, Ocon won last year's GP3 Series, which races on Formula One weekends, and he attended every DTM race as a Mercedes-AMG DTM test and reserve driver in order to gain valuable experience. Reserve driver Ocon made his debut at a DTM race weekend when he stood in for an unwell Daniel Juncadella during Friday practice for the 2015 season finale in Hockenheim.

IMSA News Roundup: February 10, 2016


Coming up short by a mere 3.048 seconds in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Black Swan Racing is looking to carry that momentum into the remainder of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season in a bid to capture GT Daytona (GTD) class honors.

Tim Pappas, Nicky Catsburg, Andy Pilgrim and Patrick Long took second in the new No. 540 Papent.com/Fine Arts Enterprises/Champion Porsche/Boston Athletic Club Porsche 911 GT3 R.

"Obviously, it’s hard to call the season after one race, but it’s certainly better to start the year off with a strong finish," said Pappas, owner of the Boston-based team. "We didn’t get the win, but we’re happy with the points, and we’re real happy with the quality of the competition."
