RN Vision STS reveals first GT4 European Series line-up
7 February 2019
German-Italian duo Marius Zug and Gabriele Piana will line up together in one of RN Vision STS' BMW M4 GT4s in the 2019 GT4 European Series.
In its third year in the GT4 European Series and its second consecutive season with the BMW M4 GT4, the 2017 vice-champions will enter two cars in this year's championship.
Italian racing driver Gabriele Piana will return to the German team for a fourth season. Piana won one race in 2018, together with Razvan Umbrarescu. This season, Piana will partner 16-year-old German driver Marius Zug.
For Zug, who started karting in 2012 and won the ADAC Kart Masters OK Junior class in 2017, the 2019 season will be his debut season in GT racing. Zug will also compete in ADAC GT4 Germany.
"I think that with Gabriele I have a good instructor with whom I can improve step by step and familiarise myself with GT racing. I assume that it will be a good first training year and that we can achieve our first successes with the BMW M4 GT4," said Zug.
"It will be an exciting season in the new series. I would like to thank Marius and his father for the chance to mentor him. My priority is to help him find a good start in GT racing and I hope that we can gain our first podiums or wins in 2019," added Piana.
Piana and Zug already tested the RN Vision STS BMW M4 GT4 together at the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, Portugal and will conduct further tests before the start of the 2019 season at the Monza Eni Circuit in April.
