Ferrari 296 GT3

The Emil Frey Racing division was established at the end of the 1960s and continued successfully under Walter Frey’s reign until 1980s.
It was not until the end of 2010 that the decision was made to give the once legendary Emil Frey Racing team a new lease of life. In 2015, after a great achievements of Toyota Swiss Team, Emil Frey has been offered directly be the Chief Engineer, Yukihiko Yaguchi, to operate the Lexus RC F GT3 at the VLN Championship. For Emil Frey it was a great honour, as only 6 of these vehicles have been produced worldwide. We have started our operations at the famous Nürburgring in 2015 and 2016 and completed two seasons in VLN. In 2017, the new RC F GT3 Model Year’17 arrived, and we were asked to upgrade to a more demanding series, the International GT Open. With completely new car, new team and no prior experience in the championship, we managed to finish the season with a phenomenal result – 3rd place overall in Team’s as well as Driver’s championship.

At the end of the season 2019, Emil Frey Racing had celebrated 8 victories – three of which were double wins – from a total of 14 races. Owing to this achievement, the Teams’- as well as the Drivers’ Championship of the International GT Open Series was won. Shortly thereafter, the team began to prepare for the new Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 EVO and worked on continuously developing the car further. Emil Frey Racing as well as Lamborghini Squadra Corse are very happy with the partnership. As such, the decision was made to take on a new challenge as partners.

After a solid performance in the International GT Open Championship, a comeback into the GT World Challenge Europe (formerly known as Blancpain GT Series) for 2020 is in order. The GT World Challenge Europe is the most competitive GT3-Series worldwide. The amount and density of professional teams, engineers and race drivers is incredibly high. Emil Frey Racing is taking on this challenge with both Lamborghinis in the highly competitive PRO-category.
