After a podium finish at the first race weekend of the Asian Le Mans Series, HRT heads into the final two races of the ACO series at the Yas Marina Circuit with confidence.
For the two four-hour races, Arjun Maini (IND), Frank Bird (GBR) and Michael Blanchemain (FRA) will once again take their seats in the yellow and blue #6 Mercedes-AMG GT3. The black sister car with start number 7 under the Al Manar Racing by HRT entry will be raced by Al Faisal Al Zubair (OMA), Luca Stolz (GER) and Martin Konrad (AUT).
The lights go green for the third race of the season in Abu Dhabi on Saturday at 12:00 CET. The final race will be scheduled for the following Sunday from 13:00 CET.
HRT stands for HAUPT RACING TEAM. The motorsport team was formed in July 2020 by racing driver and businessman Hubert Haupt and has established itself as a big name in international GT3 racing within a very short space of time. For example, HRT won the Drivers’ Championship in the DTM in only its second season of motorsport. In 2022, the team starts in the DTM, the Nürburgring Endurance Series, the Endurance Cup in the GT World Challenge Europe, and the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps – in some cases with works support from Mercedes-AMG. The headquarters of Haupt Racing Team GmbH are in Grünwald near Munich, while the HRT Race Base is located on the Meuspath industrial estate, right next to the Nürburgring. HRT is also involved in professional sim racing and is a sought-after partner for technical development projects and motorsport events of all kinds.
