Reigning ELMS LMP3 champion Sean Rayhall will join the 3GT Racing team of drivers in the #15 Lexus RC F GT3 for the upcoming IMSA Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, driving in the seat filled by newly-retired American racer Scott Pruett, alongside Jack Hawksworth and David Heinemeier Hansson.
“Me and Jack actually had some really good fights racing LMPC in 2014,” Rayhall said. “I have a lot of respect for Jack. We’ve done a little open wheel, and both ended up in sports car racing. It’s going to be a lot of fun to race with him.”
This run will mark Rayhall’s second ever GT start, after he made his GTD debut in January at the Rolex 24 with the HART team in its NSX GT3.
Rayhall said he’s long been an admirer of 3GT Racing’s Managing Partner, Paul Gentilozzi, having competed against Gentilozzi teams since 2013.
“I think I’ve always wanted to be a part of Paul’s program,” Rayhall said. “They’ve been such fierce competitors and I wanted to join with them after seeing Lexus come to life at the end of last year. Then at Daytona you could see the car was really getting in a stride. Now I’m looking forward to competing for podiums at Sebring and Petit Le Mans.”
