Thursday, February 01, 2018

Swiss based R-Motorsport today confirmed another piece of their 2018 Blancpain GT Endurance puzzle by announcing their fifth driver who will compete in one of their Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage GT3's.

French driver Mathieu Vaxivier (seen above testing for TDS Racing in their LMP2 this week) will join the already announced line up of Jake Dennis, Alex Brundle, Nicki Thiim and Maxime Martin in the teams two pronged attack on Europe's most prestigious GT series.

Vaxiviere brings a good level of sportscar experience from LMP2 and GT3 and will continue to develop this by having the opportunity to compete in the Blancpain series for the first time in his career.

R-Motorsport team principal Florian Kamelger said “Great to have Matthieu in the team. This brings us one more step towards the goal of the perfect driver line-up for this season.”

We understand that the sixth and final driver will be announced in due course but at the rate these announcements are going - it will be another sensational driver!
