Prosport Racing confirm GT Open Cup double header for Gillion/Verdonck

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Fresh off the back of their return to 2020 racing and the first chapter of the heavily revised 24H Series in Portimao at the weekend, this week sees German team Prosport Racing confirm another Series addition for their customer drivers for later this year.

Having raced with what was then Prosport Performance for most of last season in one of their then brand new Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 within the Creventic organised series, this news sees the team and drivers Rodrique Gillion and his professional driver coach Nico Verdonck confirm a tentative 'double toe into the water' within the GT Open Cup Series.

Having only raced for either twelve or twenty four hours with the five class 24H Series, this marks a change in direction for the Belgian racers with this series two, fifty five minute races after two Free Practice and one Qualifying session over the course of a race weekend for solely GT4 machinery.

This weeks news see them confirm entries initially for the rounds just at both Paul Ricard in late August as well as their 'home' round at Spa Francorchamps in mid October.

Their race in Portimao at the weekend was curtailed in the ninth hour after a passing car terminally damaged the #401 cars drive train in what was described as an 'ambitious' move on them whilst the team were leading the GT4 class.

This news also doubles the expected AMR attendance within the GT Open Cup to two cars with what should be a full season entry for the Spanish based Team Virage outfit as already announced.
