Yvan Muller Racing is to add a GT4 race programme to the team’s already established LMP3 activities in 2018.
The team will campaign a pair of new Mercedes-AMG GT4s in the GT4 European Series Southern Cup in partnership with PASO Traiteur, long-time partner of Yvan Muller Racing, and with the collaboration of the French Mercedes-Benz distributor SAGA.
The names of the four drivers who will compose the two crews of Yvan Muller Racing in the French GT Championship in 2018 will be announced soon together with details of the other Series that the team will enter for the season.
Yvan Muller: “At the end of each season, I evaluate all the options regarding the direction to take with Yvan Muller Racing.
“After two years of LMP3, the question arose as to whether to enter LMP2 in 2018, but we finally, decided to take a different option in addition to our LMP3 programme by launching our GT PASO Traiteur for the first time.
“For Yvan Muller Racing, this is obviously a new challenge, but to tackle such varied disciplines can only be a great asset to the team, and we look forward to being in the first race at Nogaro. ”
Tugdual Rabreau (PASO Traiteur): “We had already had the opportunity to have a taste of the GT4 last year with a Porsche Cayman GT4 Porsche Motorsport Challenge, and the idea was to take it to the next level.
“We spoke with Yvan Muller, with whom we have already shared a lot of things in recent seasons. The French GT FFSA Championship is a very attractive series and is the flagship discipline of the GT in France. ”
