GT World Challenge : Driver's line up for Spa 24H is confirmed !

GT World Challenge, Endurance : Driver's line up for Spa 24H is confirmed !

We have the pleasure the full driver line-up for its upcoming assault on the Total 24 Hours of Spa, which will see the Belgian squad's BMW M6 GT3 compete with a stunning 'art car' livery. 

The vibrant design has been created renowned visual artist Peter Halley, who was commissioned by his friend and former gallerist Alain Noirhomme to produce a unique on-track aesthetic for the 22-25 October event.

Boutsen Ginion Racing's established GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS line-up of Karim Ojjeh, Gilles Vannelet and Jens Klingmann will contest the twice-around-the-clock classic in the Pro-Am category. All three are vastly experienced competitors at Spa, with Vannelet having taken a class win in 2010 and BMW factory driver Klingmann finishing as overall runner-up in 2018. 

They will be joined for the season's marquee event by Benjamin Lessennes, who is set to make his Total 24 Hours of Spa debut at the wheel of the team's BMW. Already a race winner in the GT4 European Series and Championnat de France FFSA GT, the 22-year-old Belgian has been closely involved with the art car project from its conception.

The four-man Boutsen Ginion Racing crew will be present at Spa-Francorchamps on 29-30 September for the event's official test days, when the final livery for the #10 BMW will be revealed.

Benjamin Lessennes: “I have been working on this project since day one and I’m really proud to see it come to fruition. I’m sure the final render is going to be amazing! Peter has been working on this project for six months and now he has found the perfect way to express his art.”

Karim Ojjeh: “It is already a blessing to live your passion, but getting to drive an art car designed by Peter Halley – I am speechless!”

Jens Klingmann: “Racing an art car is always something special for a driver. Doing so at the biggest GT race in the world, the Total 24 Hours of Spa, makes it even more special. I am proud to be a part of the team and to present Peter Halley’s work, as I’m also a big art fan. Peter has created a fantastic design that will stand out above all the others. In the history of BMW we’ve had several art cars that attracted special attention, not only at the race weekend but also after the chequered flag. Now we want to crown this unique car with the best possible result.”

Gilles Vannelet: “It is a pleasure for me to be able to mix two of my passions. I am really excited to drive our art car at this year’s Total 24 Hours of Spa.”

Representing the seventh round of the GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS season, as well as the third stop on the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli calendar, the 2020 Total 24 Hours of Spa takes place from 22-25 October.

GT World Challenge, Nurburgring : DNF

GT World Challenge, Nurburgring: 6-hour endurance race: DNF

 
Not the result we were expecting since a water pump belt, perforated by gravel, forced us to retire after 4H30 of racing.
 
Karim Ojjeh took the start for a double stint. After that, Jens Klingmann took over and handed over the wheel to Gilles Vannelet. Back in the pits after 4h30, he was forced to retire. A pity.
