The Blancpain GT Series is known as the biggest and most competitive GT Series globally and there is no better way – for Gennaro Bonafede - to debut than in the flagship event of the season, the 24hrs of Spa. 

Gennaro Bonafede:  “I am extremely grateful and unbelievably excited for the opportunity to race at the 24hrs of Spa ! To be with such an experienced team like Boutsen Ginion, as well as having extremely knowledgeable teammates, is a dream for me. I am really looking forward to the two Official Test Days in 10 days’ time as this will be a good opportunity to familiarise myself with the BMW M6 GT3 and the legendary Spa-Francorchamps F1 track. As for the race, our aim is to drive consistently and without any errors.”
