After failing to source an Audi R8 (for the LMES / Le Mans), Racing Engineering is now working hard to develop a programme for the Spanish GT championship – writes Sergio Fonseca.

The team received a proposal to run a SEAT Cupra GT, but this project is apparently very expensive: an alternative is to build a Hyundai Silhouette. The team is waiting for Hyundai Spain to come to a decision. Ni Amorim and the former Formula 3 driver Lourenço Beirão da Veiga will probably share one car – of whatever marque the team races.

Francisco Gallego and Armando Paes will not race for JvG Racing next season. Instead, the Portuguese "gentleman drivers" will drive the ASM Team's second Porsche 911 GT3-R (#88 car at the Rolex 24) in the Spanish GT Championship.

Opção 04 (the team has won the Portuguese rally championship in the past with Pedro Matos Chaves in a Corolla WRC) is considering entering a brand new Ferrari 360 GTC in the Spanish series. The team is searching for suitable drivers before confirming the project.

Jesus Pareja and GT Sport are very interested in the new Formula X, the van Diemen sportscar (it can also be converted into a single seater) that will race in a support series to the LMES. Pareja is interested in running the cars as a support series to the Spanish GT Championship.
