The #15 Lexus RC F GT3 heads into the 10-hour endurance event having finished within the top 10 in all three endurance races this year with full-time drivers Jack Hawksworth and David Heinemeier Hansson. They opened up the season in January at the Rolex 24 at Daytona with a ninth-place finish, went on to register a fifth-place result at the 12 Hours of Sebring in March, and finished a season-best of fourth at the six-hour event at Watkins Glen International in July.

The 3GT racing drivers are ready for the 10-hour Endurance event at Road Atlanta
Last season, the #15 Lexus finished all four Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup events on the IMSA schedule.

Philipp Frommenwiler and Georgia-native Sean Rayhall return to 3GT Racing for the gruelling 10-hour season-finale at Road Atlanta. Frommenwiler joins full-time drivers Dominik Baumann and Kyle Marcelli, making his third start in the #14 Lexus RC F GT3 after competing in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring to open the season.

Rayhall is making his second start in the #15 Lexus, joining full-time racers Hawksworth and Heinemeier Hansson for Saturday's endurance event after also competing at Sebring earlier this season.
In the RC F GT3 Road Atlanta debut last year, the 3GT Racing Lexus RC F GT3 entries both finished in the top 10 at the 12-turn, 4.08km road course located outside of Atlanta. Last year, the #15 RC F GT3 finished eighth after leading the GTD class for five laps. The #14 Lexus paced the GTD field for 18 laps last year before an incident late in the race resulted in a tenth-place finish.

3GT Racing driver Marcelli was victorious at Road Atlanta in the American Le Mans Series Prototype Challenge class in 2013 and earned a pole position there in 2012, while Hawksworth also recorded a Prototype Challenge pole position at Road Atlanta in 2014.
