After talks with various teams, Flick announced this week that she will be joining forces with Optimum motorsport for 2016. Optimum have recently acquired a 2016 Audi R8 LMS GT3 car, the car will run in both British GT and the Creventic 24 hour series. Flick will be contesting all 6 of the 24hour series rounds, which kicks off in Dubai in January.

‘I am hugely excited to be making the step up to GT3 alongside Optimum, I have worked with Shaun, Optimums team manager for a number of years now. When the opportunity came forward to drive the new Audi, it was an easy decision with the Audi already a proven race winning car and Optimum an experienced front running team. I am very excited for the season ahead and getting to grips with a GT3 car’.
