A few weeks ago, Swiss Marc A. Hayek (President and CEO of Blancpain) was back at the wheel of a race car at Paul Ricard HTTT in Le Castellet (South of France) for the first time in almost nine months. He used the official Blancpain Sprint Series test days there to make himself familiar with the Lamborghini Gallardo again.
Together with Dutch race driver Peter Kox, Marc A. Hayek will battle it out for championship points in this season's GT races. The Spa 24 Hours, part of the Blancpain Endurance Series, in July 2013 was their last race at the wheel of a Lamborghini.
The two drivers were actually the first team to register for the Blancpain GT Series last November. The first race of this series will take place in Nogaro, France at the Easter weekend (April 19th to 21st, 2014).
Marc A. Hayek and Peter Kox will continue to rely on their successful Lamborghini Gallardo FLII.
