TF Sport will return to the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup this season with Ahmad Al Harthy and his Oman Racing Team entry fielding a Silver Cup entry.

Al Harthy will drive alongside Charlie Eastwood and Euan McKay in the team’s Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in the five-round Endurance Cup.

Eastwood will combine the program with his full-season FIA World Endurance Championship drive in the team’s GTE-Am entry.

Al Harthy won the Pro-Am Endurance Cup title alongside Jonny Adam last season, and has been recategorized from Bronze status to become a Silver-rated driver.

“I’m really excited to see how we can move forward in 2018 after an amazing season in the Blancpain Endurance Cup last year,” said Al Harthy.

“It was important for me to build on the success of last year and to remain in the series and as a Silver driver this year, it’s a small but exciting step forward with Oman Racing TF Sport once again.”
