Andrea Caldarelli and Oliver Jarvis will both be present in the SUPER GT Series of 2014 driving the LEXUS RC F
The Motorsports division of Toyota Motor Corporation recently organized an official press conference and announced their worldwide action plans schemed for the coming race season of 2014. The entry by our two drivers of Global Racing Management, Ltd. (GRM) was also formally announced.
Andrea Caldarelli, the young and mighty Italian driver will continue his stride with LEXUS TEAM KeePer TOM’S in the SUPER GT (GT500 class) as in the previous years. Together with Daisuke Ito, his very trusted teammate, Andrea will aim at winning the championship behind the wheels of the new No. 37 “KeePer TOM’S RC F”.
“I am really happy to continue in the SUPER GT Series of 2014 with Lexus Racing and with a top team such as TOM’S. I would like to thank all the team, LEXUS TEAM KeePer TOM’S for their support and TRD to give me the opportunity to stay in the Toyota family. This year we have many changes compared to last year and also we have a completely new car, the “RC F”. However we already have the experience of working together in 2013, so I am really confident to do a good job. I am now looking forward to driving the new machine!
Oliver Jarvis(GB) who has newly signed the management contract with GRM, is back to drive the Japanese circuits again in the SUPER GT Series and also with LEXUS TEAM SARD, No. 39 “DENSO KOBELCO RC F”. Joined by Hiroaki Ishiura with whom he has worked together in the F3 days, this team of the two strong drivers should draw a huge amount of attention as the “perfect combination” in this series, just as well.
“I am delighted that Toyota and Team SARD have given me the opportunity to race in SUPER GT this year, ever since racing in Japan in 2007 it has been my intention to return and race in what I consider to be one of the best Championships in the World. With the introduction of the new cars it felt like a perfect time to come back and I am extremely grateful to Team SARD for putting their faith in me. I can’t wait to team up again with my old team mate Ishiura San and I hope that we can prove to be a strong combination from the very start.”
The 2014 SUPER GT series will first meet for official testing during March 15-16 (in Okayama), before opening the season on April 5th and the 6th for the 1st Round (Okayama).
