Having made his LMP3 debut in the Asian Le Mans Series last month, Devon Modell is all set for another new experience as he joins FFF Racing by ACM in Dubai for the third round of the Super Trofeo Middle East series.
Modell, who is managed by BAM Motorsport Promotions, will team up with fellow British racer Jack Bartholomew in the #5 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 on what will be the second visit to Dubai for the team on 2-4 March.
FFF Racing secured the runner-up position with the #5 entry in Abu Dhabi earlier this month, something Modell is keen to try and replicate on his debut with the team.
“It’s a new car, but a circuit I know really well, so I really looking forward to my first race with FFF Racing in Dubai,” Modell explained. “It’s the same layout as the 24-Hour races and I’ve done three of those, so that will be a big help for me as I have a lot to learn in a short space of time about the car.
“I do know it’s a quick car, similar to Blancpain in terms of lap time and fast in the straight line… so I’m aiming to get up to speed as quickly as I can in practice and I’m looking forward to the two races with my new teammate.”
Race one takes place Friday at 14.40 local time, with Saturday’s event following at 12.10 (GMT +4).
