The car what they will use in this new project, the Ginetta G55 GT4, the most recent car built by the British brand, will contribute to establish their targets: clinching partial victories and the title.

“I´m delighted after taking this chance for my racing career in 2014, and closing everything so soon, with many time to prepare the season properly. To team up with Javier is another excellent fact, as we know each other since many years ago, and he already has proven his speed”, Fontes explained. On the other hand, Ibrán stressed “after competing In the Maserati Trofeo MC World Series, this new car will be a great opportunity to keep racing at the highest level, in a championship like the CER, and with Álvaro as my teammate.

The team is due to start its first test on track in March, with the championship kicking off in May.
