By Tarek Ramchani

Sainteloc Racing have confirmed their plans for the 2013 Blanpcain Endurance Series. The French Audi Sport customer racing team will field no less than three Audi R8 LMS and ultra cars.

The Saint-Etienne based team will have a single car in each of the three series classes. One in the top Pro-Cup class, one in the Pro-Am class and the final entry will run in the Gentlemen Trophy, open for amateurs. Last year Sainteloc Racing won the teams title in the Gentlemen Trophy and the drivers title with Pierre Hirschi and Robert Hissom.

For the moment only the Pro-Am Cup Audi R8 LMS ultra driver line-up has been unveiled  The car will be shared by Frenchmen David Hallyday and Romain Monti, the third driver is Ronnie Latinne from Belgium. The star of the car will no doubt be David Hallyday. The popular French singer is no stranger to the Audi R8 LMS ultra, as he raced with Audi France in the French GT series for many years.

In addition to the Blancpain Endurance Series, Sainteloc Racing will also be back in French GT tour with multiple Audi R8 LMS ultra cars.
