3GT Racing confirms Kyle Marcelli for 2018 IMSA series
Canadian Kyle Marcelli and Dominik Baumann will drive for 3GT Racing in this year’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series.
Team 3GT Racing, based in East Lansing, Michigan and led by Paul Gentilozzi will field two Lexus RC F GT3 cars during the 2018 season.
Baumann and Marcelli will team up in the No. 14 Lexus RC F GT3 for the team’s second year racing in the GTD category. David Heinemeier Hansson and Jack Hawksworth will drive the No. 15 Lexus RC F GT3.
Marcelli of Barrie, Ontario started by playing ice hockey, but at the age of 10 he turned his attention to karting. He made his professional debut in the American Le Mans Series in 2010.
Marcelli is a former Formula 1600 champion, Porsche GT3 Cup champion, American Le Mans Series vice-champion, Petit Le Mans winner, and runner-up at the Sebring 12 Hours.
“I’ve known Paul Gentilozzi for quite a few years and raced against his team,” Marcelli declared. “A few years ago, I was going to race with him, but schedules didn’t work out. This year is the right time. Everything has lined up and to be a part of 3GT Racing, with the Lexus RC F GT3, is special. Everyone takes this year very seriously. They want to show up and win and it’s exciting to be part of that.”
