Boutsen VDS Racing has confirmed that rising stars Roee Meyuhas and César Gazeau will join its line-up for the 2023 Fanatec GT season.
Meyuhas enjoyed a stellar 2022 campaign, winning both the GT4 European Series and FFSA GT French Championship Silver Cup titles. In both cases, the 22-year-old American shared a Saintéloc Racing Audi R8 with Erwan Bastard.
He will graduate to the Ingolstadt marque's GT3 model this year as part of the new collaboration between Boutsen Racing and Marc VDS, running the five long-distance Endurance Cup races, including the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa on 29 June – 2 July.
. The Belgian squads have joined forces for 2023 and plan to run a two-car programme in the full Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS season.
The team has also confirmed that 2020 FFSA GT Am champion César Gazeau will form part of the line-up. The 19-year-old Frenchman, who contested last year's Fanatec GT Endurance Cup in a Saintéloc Racing-run Audi, is set to expand to a full-season assault with Boutsen VDS Racing. Aurélien Panis and Alberto di Folco, who were announced as part of the setup in November, are yet to have their programmes defined.
Meyuhas follows the likes of Valentin Hasse-Clot, Milan Dontje and Bastian Buus in winning the GT4 European Series title and graduating directly to Fanatec GT, while his co-champion Bastard is also planning a move to the GT3 ranks this term. Boutsen VDS will join its rivals on-track at the official Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS test days at Circuit Paul Ricard on 7-8 March, while the 2023 campaign launches at Monza on 21-23 April.
