SPS Automotive Performance have confirmed their plans for the upcoming Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS campaign. Two cars are primed for the Endurance Cup whilst a single car will be used for the Sprint series.

The squad who made its series debut last year will once again be running Mercedes cars for a full season campaign. In the #20 car, Valentin Pierburg and Dominik Baumann will spear-head the team’s line-up by contesting all 10 events in the Pro-Am class. Florian Scholze will complete the Endurance Cup crew, having started two races for SPS last term.

The sister #40 Mercedes-AMG will only compete in the Endurance events with three new drivers in the Silver Cup. Jordan Love, who was the 2019 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia champion will swap his Porsche for a Mercedes this year, while Swiss duo Yannick Mettler and Miklas Born are also set for their series debuts.

Team principal Stephan Sohn said “We are delighted to be starting in the GT World Challenge Europe again,After our first full season, it goes without saying that we are ultimately looking to do better than last year. The opposition will be very strong again. However, I think we have a balanced team and can challenge for victory in both classes.”

Preparations for the new season will continue at the official test days at Circuit Paul Ricard (25/26 March). The opening Endurance Cup race takes place at Monza on 17-19 April, followed by the first Sprint event at Magny-Cours on 7-9 May.
