ADAC GT Masters: YACO Racing returning to ADAC GT with Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Johan Laubscher

YACO Racing will again be relying on Audi GT3 machinery in the 2015 ADAC GT Masters. The team run by Uwe Geipel will be returning with Audi Sport customer racing for the third year in succession, following their Audi R8 LMS ultra debut in 2013.

They will be taking part with at least one Audi R8 LMS ultra entry and they are also working on a possible second R8 LMS ultra intended for younger drivers.

Their primary Audi R8 LMS ultra driver line-up has not yet been confirmed, but the team has mentioned that they would like to retain the services of their 2014 driver pairing of Rahel Frey and Philip Geipel, as the entire team worked very well together last year.

The 2015 ADAC GT Masters season gets underway at Oschersleben from 24-26 April.
