He will be joined by former International GT Open and Le Mans Series GT2 champion Joël Camathias, who last raced in an SRO-run series was at in the Blancpain GT Series Asia round at Sepang, Malaysia in 2017.
"It is not usual to be presenting end of June a racing season that will start end of July, but we all know that 2020 is not going to be remembered as a conventional year. The most important is that the worst of the tough and painful experience that we all had to endure is behind us, and that we are going back to normal life and focusing again on racing," commented Camathias.
"I am delighted to announce an exciting programme, which has also an emotional component, for my 27th season in motorsports. To be back at the forefront of the international scene, in a prestigious series such as the GT4 European Series, is very stimulating. To do it with a Porsche, a car and a brand close to my heart, adds to the enjoyment and even more exciting is to be part of package completely Swiss and from Canton Ticino. The Centri Porsche Ticino team has the expertise to do well and Ivan Jacoma is an experienced GT driver. On top of that, the programme has been designed to offer interesting possibilities for business networking to all our partners," Camathias added.
