R-Motorsport pulls out of GT3 and GT4 for 2020

6 July 2020

Swiss racing squad R-Motorsport has paused its GT3 and GT4 Aston Martin programmes, withdrawing from the GT World Challenge Europe (formerly known as the Blancpain GT Series), selected Intercontinental GT Challenge races and GT4 Europe competition as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The team was already known to be focusing its resources on its 2021 campaign, but the compressed schedule and hospitality restrictions caused by the pandemic has led the outfit to pull out of 2020 entirely.

Team principal Florian Kamelger explained that “it doesn’t make sense from a business perspective to go racing with a non-profitable, artificially shortened race programme with a late start to the season, which might even develop in an unpredictable way.”

“The required access restrictions at race events prevent us from offering our exclusive R-Experience hospitality to our customers and partners, which is vital not only for R-Motorsport but for the business of our entire group of companies.

“Irrespective of the decision not to race this season we are already fully committed to our programme in 2021 and beyond.”
