V8 Racing have confirmed Thijmen Nabuurs and Jop Rappange as their first GT4 European Series driver pairing for the 2021 season.
The Dutch Silver Cup contenders are back for a second season together in the V8 Racing Camaro GT4.R. In their first season Nabuurs and Rappange scored six podium finishes on their way to fourth place in the Silver Cup standings.
V8 Racing’s team manager Francesco Pastorelli is happy to have signed Nabuurs and Rappange for the upcoming season. “Both Thijmen and Jop have shown that they can match anyone's pace in the championship, even without a lot of experience. They have a lot of potential.”
“As a team, we have also worked hard and incorporated the lessons we learned last year, based on the drivers’ feedback and I’m confident we’ve also made significant strides forward,” said Pastorelli.
For Nabuurs, it is the ideal foundation for further success. “Last year was all about learning, learning about the car, the championship and seeing almost every track we raced at for the first time. That will be completely different this time around so I’m confident we are going to have another very good year. We have to aim for the title in the Silver Cup and that is what I’ll be doing,” he said.
V8 Racing is currently working on its options to enter a second Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R, just as it did in 2020.
The GT4 European Series is set to get underway at Monza on April 17-18.
