In just a few hours, the first race of GPVWC’s 2017 World GT Series will be held in Fuji, Japan, and there are several reasons why we can’t wait until season starts at last. Not only are we big fans of GT racing, last year’s World GT Series also was the first season ever we took part in. And finishing third in the teams’ championship while getting on the podium four times in seven races that year is our greatest achievement to date. So we were extra motivated in our search for a driver lineup that could potentially take us to the next level.
That’s why we are very proud to announce that our two Bentley Continental GT3s will be driven by Nico Barclay and Thomas Hinss.
Nico has proven his talent in various leagues out there, and we are excited that he re-signed with STAX Racing following his stint in our ITC squad. He will drive the #0 car. Partnering him in the #2 car will be Thomas Hinss. We were very impressed by his development over the last few years and are very happy that he’ll make his STAX Racing début later today.
With the Bentley Continental being our choice of car for this season, we just had to bring back our British Racing Green scheme from last year’s Aston Martin, albeit with some new design elements. The livery was once again designed by Gerdoner Designs.
