FIA GT Championship racer Martin Ragginger will make his debut in the American Le Mans Series at Mid-Ohio after being called into the Farnbacher Loles line-up for this weekend's event.
The Austrian youngster will join up with Wolf Henzler at the wheel of the #87 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, with Henzler's regular partner Dirk Werner busy competing in the Grand-Am Rolex Series event at Watkins Glen.
Ragginger will be look to help the team to its first win of the season, with two poles so far this season but a best finish of second – with victory so far proving to be elusive.
“Wolf is always quick, but he is especially good at Mid-Ohio,” team boss Gregory Loles said of his hopes for the weekend, “and we know Martin will be on pace based on what he has done in an RSR in Europe.
“There is increased competition now with the debut of the new Corvette in GT2, but we feel confident in the ability of both the drivers and the crew. It should be an exciting race.”
