A trio of young French drivers has been entrusted behind the wheel this year. Aurélien Panis and Thomas Neubauer will take part in the Sprint Championship, with Timothé Buret completing the Endurance line-up. Despite an average age of 23, the team has worked with the drivers closely in the past in different categories.
By confirming Aurélien Panis as Official Driver, Lexus is paving the way for young people to represent the brand in GT. Aurélien is a talented and steady driver who has very good experience in single-seater racing and has shown great talent in recent various championships.
Timothé Buret has acquired solid experience by participating in the ELMS and the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the team. Last year he reinforced the amateur line-up for the Total 24 Hours of Spa in GT3 with Lexus.
Thomas Neubauer is a driver full of energy and enthusiasm, with a great thirst to win. He is the only one of the trio to have taken part in a full season in GT3. His experience will be very useful for his team-mates.
