2018 24H Nur.
RCF 2nd place (SP8) 45 (Overall)
ISF 3rd Place (SP8) 46th (Overall)
For the 2018 24 Hours Nürburgring we campaigned a two-car team and forged our path to victory with a second and third place podium finish. This was the highest ranking finish out of all other teams that participated from Japan. Although our podium finishes were hard fought and earned as racing conditions were extremely harsh and unpredictable. Heavy rain and thick fog plagued that course throughout the race and even caused a red flag interruption. Fortunately, our two-car team finished the race successfully without any major issues even under extreme difficult conditions. Although we had a strong finish, our goal next year is to win the championship.
After successful completions in 2016 and 2017, NOVEL Racing will continue to compete in the Nürburgring 24 Hour Endurance Race for 2018 campaigning a two-car team with a Lexus RC F and IS F. The drivers of the RC F will be Kota Sasaki and Daiki Yoshimoto of Japan, whom are actively competing in the Super GT Series. Also joining them are Dominik and Mario Farnbacher of Germany; both masters of the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
The IS F will be piloted by 3 Japanese Super Endurance Drivers as well as Kota Sasaki making this an all Japanese Team.
