GPA Racing returns with Jimenez and Grizaud

GPA Racing will return to the GT4 European Series Powered by RAFA Racing Club this season, fielding an Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 for Kévin Jimenez et Florent Grizaud.

The French team has been a regular competitor since making its GT4 Europe debut during the 2022 season finale at Barcelona, with the team making an instant impact by scoring an Am class win in Spain. Since, both GPA’s cars and drivers have shown impressive performance.

Last year Jimenez and Grizaud celebrated six Am class podium finishes on their way to fifth in the championship, with GPA finishing fourth in the teams’ points. The pair will now return for a second full season aboard the new-look Vantage GT4.

Frenchman Jimenez began his career racing touring cars and then moved into Renault Clios, finishing fifth overall in the Clio Eurocup on two occasions before making the switch to GT racing in 2022. His association with the GPA team goes back almost a decade.

Grizaud, also from France, followed a similar route to his team-mate, being a race winner in the FFSA Tourisme championship in a Peugeot RCZ before switching to GTs and winning races in both French GT4 and Europe.

A GPA Racing statement said: “Both drivers have shown their ability to evolve over the last few years, and this, in various categories. We're honored to be able to continue working with these two drivers, and we're confident about their ability and determination to secure a place at the top of the championship.  We're looking forward to an exciting season and we can't wait to see what the future holds for our team.”
