I.S.R. Racing Press Release
18/11/2014 - Team I.S.R. Racing announce its participation to the Gulf 12 Hours race from 11 to 13 December in Abu Dhabi.
Following the positive debut in endurance racing last July during the 24 Hours of Spa – race ended within the points – the team will bring to Yas Marina an Audi R8 LMS ultra driven by a new lineup made by Aditya Patel (IND), Jiri Pisarik (CZ) and Filip Salaquarda (CZ).
Igor Salaquarda (I.S.R. Racing, Team Principal):
“The 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi will be another interesting test bench for the team ahead of the forthcoming season and of the exciting challenge we have in front of us. Over the last five years we successfully took part in the World Series by Renault 3.5 with our drivers scoring several victories, consequently becoming Formula 1 stars.
Looking to challenging future goals has always been in the DNA of our team and at the end of this year’s campaign we decided to focus exclusively on a very high level project in GT racing, which means stopping our participation to the World Series by Renault.
Endurance races have always excited me and the decision was taken with the great enthusiasm. Ideas started to get into shape and we got the first Audi R8 LMS ultra in July, car that we positively brought I.S.R. to the GT debut in Spa. Things evolved since then and now we devised a specific programme for 2015 that will involve two Audi R8 LMS in the Blancpain Endurance Series and two in the Blancpain Sprint Series.
