A change of driver line up at Bullitt Racing sees out the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup Series

Thursday, September 28, 2023

The final round of the SRO GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup season beckons this weekend from the Circuit de Catalunya near Barcelona, Spain where another fifty-five GT3 car entry will entice a large crowd to the circuit and a larger audience to its live stream.

Having competed at a previous five rounds including the flagship 24Hrs of Spa Francorchamps, the locally based Bullitt Racing team remain the solo Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 competing team at this final round albeit with a slightly differing driver line up.

Remaining within their chosen silver class that they have competed within all season, the #33 car’s season long regulars of Romain Leroux and Jacob Riegel return to Spain to see out the year but this time they see Jeff Kingsley stepping aside for the pair to be joined by young French racer Maxime Robin.

With many of the series Championship classes already decided, this weekend’s round will be more about ‘setting their stall out’ ahead of any 2024 programme within both the GT World Challenge Series and others.

Since the last round from the Nurburgring back in late July where the #33 car finished with their best result of the season so far in P4, Leroux has been back to the Asian racing arena he knows so well to claim another double F1 Singapore support race (Thailand Super Series) within an AMR Vantage GT4 whilst Robin competed within the latest round of the European Le Mans Series only last weekend.

Tomorrow sees the first of the track action for the series with the first Paid Test session before the more formal sessions starting on Saturday with Free Practice and Pre-Qualifying before Qualifying and the final three-hour race of the season on Sunday afternoon.

Having had to bear considerable challenges of their own this season, it will be great of the team can go out  with a podium finish this weekend!
