Full GT Open campaign for Boutsen Ginion Racing and François Grimm


After tasting the series with one-off participations, Boutsen Ginion Racing is ready for its first International GT Open full campaign this year. The well-known Belgian squad, led by Olivier Lainé and Olivia Boutsen, will enter a Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 R-EX, the impressive car developed by Reiter Engineering which is with no doubt one of the fans’ GT3 favorites.

At the wheel, driving alone, will be Swiss gentleman driver François Grimm (58), who has been a race winner in the Ultimate Cup Series in 2019, has won that same year the Pro-Am class at the Jerez 24 Hours and has previously raced in the Swiss Porsche GT3 and GT4 Cups.

Grimm, who has been testing this winter at Barcelona, Ricard and Monza, commented: “I am delighted to join the GT Open this year, which represents an important step in my career, and do it with Boutsen Ginion Racing, a team that has strong credentials and expertise in GT racing. The Lambo Gallardo R-EX is a great car to drive and I am looking very much forward to enjoy the season.”
