Phoenix Racing is set for a joint GT3 and GT4 program with both variants of the Audi R8 LMS next season, competing in the Blancpain GT Series and GT4 European Series.

The team announced its program on Wednesday but has not yet revealed any details regarding drivers or number of cars.

It will mark Phoenix’s return to Blancpain GT having scaled back its European program this season to focus on the Nürburgring 24. 

It entered two cars for the Blancpain GT Sprint Cup in 2016 but hasn’t fielded a full-season Endurance Cup entry since 2015.

The Ernst Moser-led outfit will also make its first appearance in the GT4 European Series with the Audi R8 LMS GT4 which it debuted in the N24 earlier this season. 

“Entering this series is the next milestone in team history,” commented Moser. “We can help develop young and talented drivers and also give Gentlemen drivers interesting, new opportunities.”
