The TOYOTA GAZOO Racing customer teams had a successful race weekend bringing home a total of five podiums at Monza and the Nürburgring.
At the GT4 European Series season opener in Monza, CMR (Classic & Modern Racing) drivers Antoine Potty and Stéphane Léméret finished second overall in both races. The #8 GR Supra GT4 started Saturday’s one-hour race from the front row and even lead the car’s very first race on the Italian Grand Prix circuit before finishing second. They repeated that achievement on Sunday. Andrea Bénézet and Wilfried Cazalbon, in the #3 sister car, rounded off the successful weekend for CMR by winning the AM class in the first race in spectacular fashion. The GR Supra GT4 was in second place going into the final corner but overtook the leader on the exit, winning the race by only 0.016 seconds. In the second race, the #3 GR Supra GT4 was also among the leaders until Bénézet went off the track after 21 laps. In addition, Team SVC Sport Management made its debut in the GT4 European Series with a third GR Supra GT4. Piotr and Antoni Chodzen, competing in the PRO-AM class, finished 13th in the first race and improved to earn their first top-10 finish with eighth on Sunday.
In the Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (NLS) four-hour race, the GR Supra GT4 scored its first-ever podium on the Nordschleife. Ring Racing, with its drivers Andreas Gülden and Michael Tischner, finished the race in second place in the SP10 class. Team Pit Lane repeated this success with their GT86 CS-Cup in the SP3 class also finishing second.
A total of five GR Supra GT4 were present at the Super Taikyu Series’ second round at Sugo. Here the best result was achieved by Fabulous GRMI finishing fifth in the well-represented ST-Z class. Meanwhile Rookie Racing secured another class win in the ST-Q category.
