CMR has confirmed the names of the drivers who will race its pair of Toyota GR Supra GT4 in the 2020 GT4 European Series.
French driver Timothé Buret and Belgian youngster Antoine Potty will share one of the two GR Supras entered by CMR this season. The other car will be entrusted to 2019 Alpine Elf Europa Cup champion Gael Castelli (F) and 2019 French FFSA GT vice-champion Stéphane Lémeret (B).
Buret will combine his GT4 European Series program with the GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS, where he will race a Lexus RC F GT3.
“It is a real challenge for me this season to accumulate this program on European circuits with, in parallel, my GT World Challenge Europe commitment in endurance with the Lexus RC F GT3. I look forward to the season,” commented Buret.
“I am very happy to join CMR in the GT4 European Series at the wheel of the Toyota GR Supra GT4. I already know this team and their past good results confirmed my desire to ride alongside them. On the occasion of two days of fruitful tests at the Paul Ricard, last weekend, I was able to work with the whole staff and get to know my young teammate Antoine Potty,” added Buret.
CMR team manager Charly Bourachot is also looking forward to get the season underway at Imola next month, after recently successfully completing two test sessions with the new Toyota GR Supra GT4 at Circuit Paul Ricard and the Circuit de Lédenon.
“We are very proud to be the first to roll out these new GT4 cars in competition. Toyota is a manufacturer that has achieved many successes and knows how to design awesome racing cars. CMR will bring its experience of the race, with drivers in the philosophy of the team: youth, experience and passion,” commented Bourachot.
CMR has been quite successful in the GT4 European Series since its made its series debut in 2016. In 2017 CMR scored its first win at Brands Hatch with Ginetta and in 2018 a CMR-entered Alpine A110 GT4 won its debut race at Spa-Francorchamps. CMR also claimed three AM class wins in 2019.
