Lyons to join AF Corse for British GT

Japanese Super GT ace Richard Lyons returns to Britain to join AF Corse in the British GT Championship.
Renowned GT racer Richard Lyons will make a return to racing on British soil this season after he was confirmed as part of AF Corse's British GT line-up for 2014.

The British driver has plied his trade in Japan in recent years, achieving success at Formula Nippon and Super GT level, but will embark on a new challenge for 2014 by driving a Ferrari 458 Italia in the British GT Championship.

Lyons has been teamed with young Thai racer Pasin Lathouras, with John Dhillon and Aaron Scott making up the team's second Ferrari.

"I am extremely excited and honoured that I will be back racing in Britain for the prestigious British GT Championship with AF Corse,” he said. “Most of the circuits I have raced on in the past with great results and look forwards to succeeding with the Ferrari 458 GT3.

“My team mate, Pasin Lathouras does not have experience racing on these circuits but has been very successful and super fast in the Asian series. I think we can have a great partnership with AF Corse and look forwards to the season ahead”.
The 2014 season will visit six UK venues with one international event held at the Belgian circuit, Spa-Francorchamps. Ten races will be held with the first race of the British GT Championship being held at Oulton Park, with a double race on April 19th.
