“We are very excited to continue growing step by step as athletes, and this year to be able to compete together in the prestigious Iberian Supercars Endurance. It will be quite a challenge for the team to participate in this championship, which is being held on some circuits that we don't know, although we are very clear that the premise is still to continue learning and improving, but without forgetting that our performance must be in line with the Iberian and European dimension of the framework of this competition”, said Héctor and Borja.
