NM Racing Team names drivers for two-car Mercedes-AMG entry

Xavier Lloveras, who finished as runner-up in the Silver Cup last season, will partner Lluc Ibanez again in the Silver Cup while Rafa Villanueva will be joined by Filip Vava in the second entry. Villanueva and Vava will compete in the Pro-Am class of the series.

Villanueva subbed for Ibanez at Spa-Francorchamps last year, while Romanian-born, Spanish-based Vava will make his GT4 European Series debut this season.

"Really excited for this new season. We have a great car and team and together with Xavi we complete a very strong driver pairing. We are ready for the battle,” said Ibanez.

"I'm happy to be back racing, considering the difficult times we are all going through. Happy as well to be back with Lluc and NM Racing Team,” added Lloveras. “We all have the same goal and we will do our best to achieve it!"

"I'm very excited to join NM Racing  Team and race in GT4 for the first time. We know that the car is quick, the team and I get along very well, so I am looking forward, together with Rafa, to learning and achieving the maximum possible this season," said Filip Vava.

Villanueva added: "Really looking forward to be racing in this year’s Gt4 European series with Filip, after a great 2020 season with NM Racing team it’s great to make the step up with them to the European championship, this will be my first full season in Europe and we have a very strong lineup and car for this season so I can’t wait to start!!!"
