Endurance Cup seat opens up at Madpanda Motorsport
Championship leaders Madpanda Motorsport looking for a new driver
New driver to join Assenheimer, Companc in 37 hours of races
Jorge Cabezas leaves team due to sponsorship reasons
[BARCELONA, SPAIN – Monday, 17 August 2020] An exciting seat for the remainder of the GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS Endurance Cup season, including the Total 24 Hours of Spa, has opened up at Madpanda Motorsport with Jorge Cabezas unfortunately having to leave the team.
The exciting opportunity for a Silver-rated racer includes 37 hours of racing between September and November, competing in highly competitive GT World Challenge Europe endurance events at the Nürburgring and Circuit Paul Ricard, as well as the prestigious Total 24 Hours of Spa.
Cabezas had a promising debut performance in the three-hour Endurance Cup opener at Imola in July, but he is unable to complete the season due to sponsorship reasons.
Since its debut race a little over three weeks ago, Madpanda Motorsport has already proven its race-winning potential, taking a win and a runner-up finish at Misano earlier this month. With these results, Madpanda Motorsport is currently leading the GT World Challenge Europe Silver teams’ championship, while team principal Ezequiel Companc leads the Silver drivers’ standings.
Preparations are already underway for the next Endurance Cup round, a six-hour race at Germany’s historic Nürburgring. Madpanda Motorsport’s new signing will join Companc and experienced Mercedes-AMG driver Patrick Assenheimer at the Nürburgring, 24H Spa (this year running to 25 hours) and Paul Ricard, totalling 37 hours of racing.
Ezequiel Companc, team principal and driver: “First of all, it’s a real shame that Jorge has had to cut his maiden GT3 program short. I was really encouraged by his performance at Imola and the chemistry he built up with the rest of the team in such a short time. I hope to welcome him back to the team in the future. For now, we’re on the lookout for a skilled Silver-rated driver to join Patrick and I at the remaining three races. I’m confident that we have an exciting package that will appeal to quality drivers. We’ve proven ourselves with our double podium and win at Misano, and we know we’ll only get better and better after this strong starting point.”
