Hart joins Huisman aboard V8 Racing Camaro GT4.R
12 March 2019
V8 Racing is set to return to the GT4 European Series this season with the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R, after confirming Duncan Huisman (47) and Olivier Hart (20) will share driving duties in the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro.
V8 Racing will enter a single car for the season opener at Monza, as the team is forced to miss the services of both Wolf Nathan and Luc Braams early on due to various reasons.
"It was quite a challenge but I am confident we found a great combination of speed, youth and experience in our new line-up," said team owner Rick Abresch.
“Duncan is our benchmark. With him you know you basically have one of the quickest guys out there and if your pair him with a young, talented driver like Olivier, you end up with an exciting line-up," added Abresch.
"We are definitely looking forward to these two working together at the first race of the season, whilst I hope to welcome both Wolf and Luc back to the track soon."
After a challenging first season with the Camaro GT4.R in 2018, V8 Racing aims to strike back this season.
"Racing and developing a car that has only competed in the United States for the type of circuits the GT4 European Series visits wasn’t the easiest task," said team manager Francesco Pastorelli.
"But even though we are the sole team running the Camaro in Europe, we made a lot of progress throughout the season - with help from Pratt&Miller and Chevrolet - and I am confident the hard work done by the team will be rewarded even further."
The team is working hard on entering the second Camaro GT4.R later this season, according to Pastorelli.
"I am quite sure we will be racing at full strength sooner rather than later this year with several interested drivers and projects in the pipeline, but for now, we are focusing on getting the utmost out of our car and this new and superfast line-up."
The V8 Racing Camaro GT4.R is one of over 40 entries set to take part in the GT4 European Series season opener at Monza (April 12-14).
