GruppeM Is Back
Kenny Chen (full name Kenny Jen-Te Chen) is back in the
FIA GT Championship this year: the #55 Ferrari F430 GTC is now entered
by JMB Racing – GruppeM Team Ferrari, and the drivers
will be Tim Sugden and Iradj Alexander-David.
The other JMB
car remains as a JMB Racing entry, for Peter Kutemann and Antoine
Gosse. JMB also enters three F430s in the GT3 Championship.
GruppeM Porsches won the GT2 Class at every FIA GT event last year,
with Mike Rockenfeller and Marc Lieb taking the drivers’ title,
ahead of Tim Sugden and Emmanuel Collard.
Sugden won the
Porsche Cup last year, but has found permanent Porsche drives elusive
this season. He’s racing the Virgo Ferrari in the Le Mans
Series this year.
