The #72 HubAuto Racing Ferrari 488 GTE for the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours will see ex BMW factory driver Tom Blomqvist make his Le Mans 24 Hours debut alongside team owner Morris (Han-Chen) Chen and Asian Le Mans Series Champion Marcos Gomes.
Blomqvist has had a quiet 2020 after his planned R-Motorsport drive in GT3 was postponed.
Gomes too will race at Le Mans for the first time with Chen making his second appearance after racing with Team AAI to a 6th in class finish in GTE AM in the 2015 race, the entry again earned through success in the Asian Le Mans Series.
“Le Mans is an impressive event and it has been a dream of mine to drive my own car with my own Taiwanese team at the Circuit de la Sarthe. I have been fortunate enough to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans once before, being the first Taiwanese driver to do so. Now the excitement is even greater as I can proudly say this is my team.” Morris said.
“I am very confident and delighted with our line-up with two highly experienced drivers. Marcos has been fast in the Ferrari, having driven with us in the endurance events of Asian Le Mans Series and Blancpain GT Asia. I’ve also watched Tom from afar and can see his talent, so I believe we have a very strong line-up.” Chen said.
Technical Director for HubAuto, Phillip Di Fazio: “You can see from our past credentials in Asia that we have an exceptionally competitive car. The team have had a short break during the pandemic and we are all itching to get out onto the Le Mans circuit.”
Regular team Pro driver Tim Slade is understood to have missed out on the race this year due to ongoing travel restrictions from his native Australia.
