Following a remarkable 2015 season, Rinaldi Racing will continue in the Blancpain GT Series, fielding the brand new Ferrari 488 GT3.

Rinaldi Racing was one of the surprise packages in 2015, battling for the Blancpain Sprint Series Drivers’ Title until the Zandvoort finale and almost winning the Monza Endurance opener.

Norbert Siedler and Marco Seefried, the team’s star duo, will give it another shot in the green Ferrari and will be joined by Rinat Salikhov in the Endurance Cup races.

“It is awesome that Marco and I start for Rinaldi Racing again,” said Siedler.

“[The Ferrari 488 GT3] should be another step forward. The concept of the car is very promising.”

Siedler also announced he’ll compete in the ADAC GT Masters with a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 entered by HB Racing and the Nürburgring 24 Hours and VLN with Frikadelli Racing’s new Porsche 991 GT3 R.
