Wavre, Belgium-based Boutsen Ginion Racing has announced it will campaign two cars in the 2019 Blancpain GT Series – a BMW M6 GT3 and a new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo.
The BMW M6 Gt3 will be entered in the Endurance Cup and will be driven by Karim Ojjeh, Philippe Steveny and Marc Rostan.
Geneva-based Ojjeh has a long-established relationship with Boutsen Ginion Racing, having driven with the team as far back as 2015. Ojjeh has competed in the Blancpain GT Sports Club, taking the title in 2018, and now has his sights set on the Endurance Cup.
“GT Sports Club was a great way to learn the car,” said Ojjeh. “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’s began in 1991 when the Belgium driver raced in the Championnat de France Formule Renault. Steveny drove in the 2001 FIA GT Championship in the Team Rafanelli Ferrari 550 Maranello and 2019 marks the debut for the 52 year-old driver from Hannuit.
Parisian Marc Rostan moves from Sainteloc Racing where he contested the 2015, 2017 and 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.
Piloting the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo will Claude-Yves Gosselin, Pierre Feligioni and Belgian driver Renaud Kuppens, who has contested both the FAI GT Championship and the Trofeo Maserati World Series.
The team will test both cars at the Test Days at Circuit Paul Ricard, Le Castellet on March 13 – 15 before preparing for the opening Endurance Cup round at Monza on April 13 – 14.
