HubAuto Racing becomes the latest addition to the 24 Hours of Le Mans’ GTE Pro field this season.
While we are getting closer to the 2021 edition of 24 Hours of Le Mans, more and more teams share their desire to take part in the most legendary endurance race in the world. It has been revealed on Monday that HubAuto Racing will participate in the race this August.
However, this year they will enter the GTE Pro category after being in the GTE Am last year. The driver line up is yet to be announced. The car remains Porsche 911 RSR.
Team owner Morris Chen commented on the decision to change categories: “There are a number of reasons why we wanted to make the move. We have been in several discussions with our key partners, and we will be receiving significant support and sponsorships due to the switch to the LMGTE Pro category.”
“The change to LMGTE Pro is an important move for the strategic direction of our team and confirms that our sponsors have a great deal of confidence in our team’s future,” he added.
“This is the latest achievement for the growth of HubAuto Racing and we are grateful to [race organizer] the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) for enabling this change,” Chen said in the end.
In the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans race, HubAuto Racing’s no.72 car, driven by Tom Blomqvist, Morris Chen, and Marcos Gomes, did not make it to the finish.
