Lexus factory driver Jack Hawksworth is set to return to Vasser Sullivan’s lineup in this weekend’s FCP Euro Northeast Grand Prix Lime Rock Park.

Hawksworth will be back in the No. 14 Lexus RC F GT3, along with fellow factory driver Ben Barnicoat, after a motocross injury prohibited him from competing in GTD Pro races at Watkins Glen and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Kyle Kirkwood and Kamui Kobayashi were in the Lexus for those races, respectively.

The No. 14 Lexus currently sits third in the GTD Pro standings with four races remaining this season.

The driver duo recorded back-to-back second place podium finishes in April in Long Beach and at Laguna Seca.

“I’m really happy to be racing this weekend,” said Hawksworth.

“Thank you to everybody at Vasser Sullivan, TRD and Lexus for their support while I have been injured and to all the surgeons, trainers and physios who have helped me get back on my feet so quickly.

“I feel very lucky to be healthy again and just can’t wait to put this all behind me and get back to the track.

“I feel fit and ready to go and looking forward to getting back to racing with Ben and the rest of the Vasser Sullivan team this weekend.”
