Two of Ulster's leading sportscar racers, Steven Kane and Richard Lyons, return to track action this weekend on opposite sides of the world.

Kane anchors the factory Bentley team as they take on the challenge of the Nurburgring 24-hour race in Germany and Lyons is back in the Far East with the Craft-Bamboo Aston Martin team for the start of the Asian Super GT series in Korea.

Hillsborough-based Lyons is re-united with experienced Hong Kong driver Frank Yu for the six-round Asian series, which begins at the Korean grand prix circuit in Yeongam.

"Frank and I have had some good races in the past and I'm hoping that we can build on this and take the fight to the other contenders," said former Formula Nippon and Japanese GT champion Lyons.

Kane, meanwhile, shares one of two M-Sport run Bentley Continental GT3s with Andy Meyrick and Guy Smith at the Nurburgring for a race which incorporates part of the German Grand Prix circuit and the old Nordschleife loop, stretching the lap to 25 kilometres.

"None of us underestimates the difficulty of this race but we have prepared well and are up for the challenge," he said.
