Triple Eight has confirmed a two-car full-season program in the Blancpain Endurance Series, as well as a British GT Championship program.

The British team took part in two Blancpain Endurance Series rounds, at Silverstone and the Nürburgring, before taking part in the Baku World Challenge in Azerbaijan at the end of the season.

In 2015 Triple Eight will enter two BMW Z4 GT3s in the Blancpain Endurance Series, with driver and co-owner Lee Mowle joined by silver-rated Joe Osborne and Triple Eight Driver Development (TEDD) racer Ryan Ratcliffe.

“The Spa 24 is one of those races you just want to do as a driver. Add to that Monza, Ricard and the Nürburgring, plus Silverstone and it’s a great series,” explained Mowle.

Mowle, Osborne and Ratcliffe will compete in the PRO-AM category, while the second line-up has yet to be announced.

“I think I’m more motivated than ever. I’m taking responsibility for getting everyone up to speed with the series,” Osborne said.

“I’m no longer just a driver and I truly relish the opportunity of being the lead driver, because I want to win. It’s the first time I’ll spend all year in the same car and I think that can only be viewed as a positive for our chances of achieving good results.”

Mowle and Osborne will also race together in the British GT Championship.
