Walkinshaw Racing

Autobacs Super GT Series

British racer Sean Walkinshaw contests his third season in the Autobacs Super GT Championship in 2019, taking on a new challenge after switching from BMW power to a Lexus RC-F GT3 having signed for Panther ARTO Team Thailand.

Over the past two years in Japan, the Chipping Norton-based driver has become a very strong force in the GT300 class. In 2017, his rookie season in Super GT, he finished fourth overall with one race win as team-mate to Shinichi Takagi. Last year, they took two victories and became Vice-Champions.
