Epperstone's George Gamble, 23, announces plans to compete in GT4 European Series with R-Motorsport and team-mate Seb Perez, of Chesterfield
George Gamble has announced his race plans for the upcoming season, which is set to include a spell at the wheel of an Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4.
The 23-year-old is to be the new R-Motorsport junior driver in the highly competitive GT4 European Series.
Gamble, from Epperstone, is to make his move up to the GT4 European Series after successfully racing high-speed Porsche’s over the previous two seasons.
However, he is no stranger to competitive GT racing having lined up in the Ginetta GT4 Supercup in 2017.
He then moved on to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain in 2018, where he took the title of rookie champion.
Last term, in his second season in the championship, he secured an overall third place finish in the pro class and clinched ten podium spots.
Gamble was announced as an R-Motorsport driver alongside 20-year-old Seb Perez, of Chesterfield.
The two were previous team-mates in the Porsche Carrera Cup.
Gamble said: “It’s looking to be a great year with a fresh set of challenges ahead for me and my team-mate Seb, moving into the ultra-competitive European GT4 grid.
“I’m really pleased to be racing with such a great outfit like R-Motorsport.
“They are very experienced and will help out massively in our transition to endurance racing.”
The Swiss motorsport outfit will make its GT4 European Series debut this season after confirming the expansion of its GT racing programme, meaning the spotlight will be on both Gamble and Perez.
“We are very pleased to be able to extend R-Motorsport’s range of activities this season,” said team principal, Florian Kamelger.
“We see this involvement in GT4 as the logical extension of our previous GT sporting activities.
“So, as part of our programme of development for juniors, we are now giving these two GT4 drivers a chance to perform well and show that they are ready to move up into the higher categories, such as GT3, for example.
“With George Gamble and Seb Perez, we have signed two promising young talents, who are very keen to show just what they are capable of in GT4.”
The first race of the season takes place closest to home, at Silverstone, over the weekend of May 8, before venturing around European circuits.
