HTP Motorsport has announced the lineup for the first of four Mercedes-AMG GT3 it has entered in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.

Indy Dontje, Kenneth Heyer and Patrick Assenheimer will share driving duties in the yellow and green-liveried car during all five rounds. 

The No. 48 Mercedes-AMG GT3 is backed by German company MANN-FILTER and will compete for the overall honors in the Pro Cup.

Dutchman Dontje already has a season with HTP under his belt and also raced for Black Falcon on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2016.

Assenheimer mainly focused on the ADAC GT Masters in the past, racing a Callaway Competition Corvette GT3-R for the last three seasons, while Kenneth Heyer won the Creventic organized 24H Series in 2016.

The trio will also race the MANN-FILTER-backed car in the Nürburgring 24 with Bernd Schneider as the fourth driver, while Marvin Kirchhöfer joins Dontje in the ADAC GT Masters.

The remaining HTP Sprint and Endurance Cup lineups will be announced shortly.
