RAM Racing has announced its Pro-Am driver lineup for next month’s Gulf 12 Hours including the reigning Intelligent Money British GT champion Ian Loggie.
The British squad is fielding a single Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo in the final round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli which takes place on Dec. 11 at Yas Marina Circuit.
Loggie will team up with fellow British GT competitor Morgan Tillbrook and DTM driver Mikael Grenier.
They are set to compete with a special livery recognizing the designs of the D2 phone company that sponsored Mercedez-Benz DTM and GT1 machinery in the 1990s.
“I’m really excited to get going in the Gulf 12 Hours this year,” said Loggie.
“It’s been a massively busy season for me, with British GT, GT Cup, GT World Challenge Europe, Radicals in the UAE and 24-hour races in Dubai and Portimao… so the Gulf 12 Hours should cap my year off nicely, and I certainly can’t complain about having too much racing!
“I’m excited to share the car with Morgan and Mik, too. I know Morgan well and we shared a Mercedes-AMG in the last Gulf 12 Hours back in January.
“We’ve been competitors all season in British GT, so I know exactly how quick he is, and I’m really looking forward to working with Mik again. I feel we’ve got a great chance of a Pro-Am win.”
Tillbrook raced an Enduro Motorsport McLaren 720S GT3 in this year’s British GT Championship and finished third in the standings alongside Marcus Clutton.
Grenier, meanwhile, represented GruppeM Racing in the DTM and teamed up with Loggie for the Asian Le Mans Series in February which included two races at Yas Marina.
“I’m really happy to be part of this RAM Racing team,” said Grenier.
“It’s a team I’ve known for a long while but never raced with before, and Jules [Gounon] has told me some great things about them, so I’m excited to see what we can do together.
“It will also be the first time I’ve raced with Morgan, but I know he and Ian are two of the best Am drivers in British GT, so I know we’ll be a competitive trio.
“The car itself also looks amazing. The D2 livery is such an iconic livery for Mercedes-AMG and for the DTM. It will be amazing to get to compete with it.”
