With GRC entries opening in only the last couple of weeks, entries for the 2019/20 season are already coming in, and the first two are confirmed.
Steve Adams was the first to confirm for the season. Living in Australia but frequently traveling to the Dubai, Steve last raced in the UAE back in 2009 in the UAE GT Championship in his beautifully prepared Porsche 944.
When asked about his prior racing career he gave this rather modest reply:
“My racing history is not very exciting so sorry not much to say. I did some Formula Vee and Formula Ford in Australia in the late 80s, I did a Formula 2000 series in Canada in 1999. The next and last time I raced was 2009 and 2010 UAE GT series in the Porsche 944. Basically, I seem to go racing about once every decade, so it’s about time again…”
Steve bought his Consult Aero liveried SR3 a few months back and has been testing with GulfSport Racing since then, he has shown good pace and for sure will be a contender for the top spots this coming season.
Next to confirm this entry is the 2019/20 Gulf Radical Cup Vice Champion Ian Roberts. Ian recently completed his prize from last season testing an LMP3 in Spain. Ian showed very strong pace all season last year, so he is for sure a strong contender for the title this year.
