Niki Lanik to team up with Oscar Slingerland and Paul Daniels for the Spa 1000 kilometre event.
2009 FIA GT3 championship Porsche cup winner Niki Lanik will make his debut in the Le Mans Series GT2 category at the Spa 1000km race this weekend.

The Rapidman managed Austrian was invited to test the Porsche RSR GT2 at Snetterton recently and impressed the team enough to be asked to make his debut in one of Sports cars classic races, the Spa 1000km.

Lanik is now looking forward to being reunited with former team-mate Oscar Slingerland and driving for the first time with Paul Daniels.

“I loved racing at Spa in the 24 hours race last year, where we finished on the podium,” he said. “This race will give me the opportunity to drive against some of the World's best Sports car drivers in a race which is thought of as the dress rehearsal for Le Mans.”
