Going into the final round of this season’s Sprint Cup in the GT World Challenge Europe at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, SPS automotive performance has a good chance of taking second place in the PRO-AM championship.
Willsbach – This weekend, SPS automotive performance is at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the climax of the Sprint Cup in the GT World Challenge Europe. Going into the finale, the team and driver Valentin Pierburg (GER) lie third in the PRO-AM class, just 4.5 points off second place. With a good result in Spain, driver and team would have a good chance of climbing into second place in the overall standings.
Dominik Baumann (AUT) returns alongside Pierburg in the cockpit of the #20 Mercedes-AMG GT3. Nick Foster (AUS) stood in for Baumann at the latest round, at Circuit Zandvoort, as a clash with the Nürburgring 24 Hours meant the Austrian was unable to team up with Pierburg in the Netherlands.
As at the event in Magny-Cours, the finale of the Sprint Cup in the GT World Challenge Europe will feature three 60-minute races. Race one starts on Saturday, October 10, at 17:15 (CEST). Races two and three get underway on Sunday, 11 October, at 12:25 and 16:30 (CEST).
Stephan Sohn, team principal SPS automotive performance: “After our good displays in recent races, our goal is obviously to seize second place in the table. However, the field is very strong, as always, and a lot can happen in three races. We will do our best to achieve our goal.”
