GTWC, GT World Challenge Endurance 24H de Spa : Yann Zimmer joins our team

On July 31st and August 1st, the Franco-Swiss driver, Yann Zimmer will compete in his first 24H race on the track known as the most beautiful in the world. He will drive the BMW M6 GT3 in his childhood idol scheme, the comic book hero Michel Vaillant.

We got in touch with Boutsen Ginion Racing a few months ago thanks to the team's engineer, who I am close to and who lives a few hundred meters from my main sponsor this year, Huckert's Laboratory, reveals Yann. They were looking for a Silver driver to complete their line-up already composed of a Gold driver, Jens Klingmann, and two Bronze drivers, Jens Liebhauser and Karim Ojjeh, because it’s in this kind of configuration that we can aim for a good result in the Pro-Am class of the Spa 24H."

Yann was at work on Tuesday and Wednesday at Francorchamps to take part in the official tests and get to grips with the BMW M6 GT3. The car proved to be a good performer, with the best time in the first session and the second time in the second session.

"After a first test in Paul Ricard a few months ago, the tests at Spa have allowed me to perfect my learning of the car, a magnificent "Art Car" with its livery in memory of Jean Graton. I had three idols when I was young: Ayrton Senna, Jo Siffert, and Michel Vaillant, so it is an honor for me to be part of that story. I think that with the emulation within our line-up and the team, all the ingredients are gathered to aim for the podium in Pro-Am. That's the goal, because on a race like this, anything can happen", concludes Yann.
