Australian racer Spike Goddard is the fourth driver to be signed up to FFF Racing Team’s Young Driver Development Programme in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East and Asia.
Richard “Spike” Goddard joins FFF Racing’s Super Trofeo effort in an ongoing bid to forge a career as a professional sportscar racer, having initially ascended the single-seater ranks in his native Australia, the UK and Europe.
In a move that will significantly increase its visibility and influence in Asian sportscar competition, FFF Racing Team supported by Squadra Corse will run two Lamborghini Huracan GT3s in the SRO GT Series Asia in 2017.
FFF Racing was founded on a campaign in the 2015 GT Asia Series, but rocketed to notoriety while traversing Europe and Asia for each round of this year's Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup, Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe, GT Asia and Asian Le Mans Series.
FFF Racing Team will reunite with British racer Matt Bell and Japanese gent Hiroshi Hamaguchi for its attack on the 2016-17 Asian Le Mans Series (AsLMS), which starts at the Zhuhai International Circuit in China later this month (29-30 October).
Bell returns to the FFF Racing ranks for the first time since his one-off Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup outing at Le Mans in June and he will share a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 with Hamaguchi, who has been hugely successful during two seasons with the Roger Dubuis-backed team in both Europe and Asia.
The much-awaited sunshine brought out the very best of FFF Racing Team on Saturday (18 June) morning in the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup’s headlining ‘Road to Le Mans’ race at Le Mans.
Hiroshi Hamaguchi and Adrian Quaife-Hobbs guided the #55 McLaren 650S to another sensational second position after a stirring drive, against competitors who had previously completed a 24-hour race on the 13.6km Circuit de la Sarthe.
Japanese gentleman racer Hamaguchi was slightly intimidated by the legendary French racetrack on his first run in the wet in practice.
