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."
Flying Lizard Motorsports has announced the addition of a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR to its NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill presented by Hawk Performance roster with Toyo Tires. The new arrival will join the 2015 race winning Audi R8 LMS, complete with a matching blue and white Toyo Tires/Flying Lizard livery. Tommy Sadler, Andy Wilzoch, Charlie Hayes, and Will Owen will complete the driver lineup, racing a 2009 chassis from Sadler's own collection, brought out of storage and rebuilt from Flying Lizard's extensive parts inventory.
