The RACAR Motorsport - AMR Partner Team is poised to take on the Iberian Supercars and the Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade this year with a formidable three-car lineup, aiming for top positions in both competitions.


In pursuit of this objective, the Portuguese team will field three competitive Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4s, with two competing in the GT4 Pro category and one in GT4 Am.


Manuel Gião, the 2022 Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade Champion and Supercars Endurance Champion, will join forces with Mathieu Martins, the Portuguese-French youngster and member of the Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy, forming a partnership in one of the GT4 Pro cars.


Meanwhile, Francisco Cruz, the 2022 Porsche Sprint Challenge Iberia Am class Champion, will team up with Roberto Faria, a Brazilian driver also affiliated with the Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy, in the other GT4 Pro entry.


Ruben Vaquinhas, who showed promising signs in his motorsport debut last year, will also compete in an Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 in GT4 Am. He will be accompanied by Pedro Bastos Rezende, a driver who has been building his career in classic racing and participated in the Estoril round of the Iberian Supercars and Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade in 2022.


“Last year we showed that we can be very competitive in a squad that was already very strong. This season, the level will be even higher, but over the off-season we've been preparing and investing in our structure so that we can take on the competition. The team is ready and we have a very strong group of drivers and we're determined to fight for wins in our respective divisions and titles. We know it's going to be a huge challenge, but we're going to work hard to achieve our goals,” said Ricardo Antunes, the Team Principal of RACAR Motorsport.


Iberian Supercars and Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade will kick off at Circuito Jerez in Spain.
