Phantom Global Racing is growing fast. The Chinese team debuted in competition at the Bathurst 12 Hours in February, with a convincing fourth place finish. Also present in GT World Challenge Asia, Martin Young's team will perform in Europe from the 26th to the 30th for the 24 Hours of Spa on a Porsche 911 GT3 R.

For this discovery of the Belgian event, Phantom Global Racing will trust Jaxon Evans and Joel Eriksson, already present on the slopes of Mount Panorama at the start of the year. The team especially offered itself a choice reinforcement in the person of Thomas Preining. The Austrian, reigning champion of DTM, has already participated in the famous Belgian race three times and remains in fifth place last year.

« We are very happy to announce our participation in the 24 Hours of Spa this year, rejoices Martin Young, director of Phantom Global Racing. It will be a big challenge, but we are very excited. After a good start to the season at the Bathurst 12 Hours and in GT World Challenge Asia, we want to continue this momentum with a group of talented drivers made up of Thomas, Jaxon and Joel. »
