The second round of Supercars Jarama RACE, the new Spanish Race Ready competition, will be held next weekend at the Circuito de Madrid Jarama - RACE.

The Supercars Jarama RACE is making its debut on the circuits this year and while its first event, held in May at the Circuito de Jerez, was accompanied by its 'big brother' - the Iberian Supercars - for its second round it will have its own exclusive event, the eagerly awaited Jarama Classic.

The numerous fans expected at the Circuito de Madrid Jarama - RACE will find a line-up of nineteen cars in three categories, seven divisions and teams and drivers from Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom, which promise a lot of excitement and battles at the legendary Madrid track.

In GT4, intense battles are expected in all divisions, with the great rivalry between Mercedes and BMW being one of the main reasons for interest, with McLaren also coming into play.

In GT4 Pro there will be two Bavarian cars against three from Stuttgart, with Nerea Martí and José de los Milagros, in the M4 GT4 (G82) of BMW Motorsport Spain, hoping to maintain the good performances they showed in Jerez, while Sérgio Azevedo and Orlando Batina, in the M4 GT4 (F82) of Batina Racing, hope to continue their good start to the season in this foray into Spanish motorsport.

After a more difficult than expected start, the NM Racing Team men are hoping to improve their results, with Guillermo Aso and Filip Vava, in one of the team's Mercedes AMG GT4s, and Alba Cano and Andy Cantu, in another, determined to fight for podium positions.

Series newcomers Team VRT had a very positive start in Jerez, with Salvador Tineo and Luis González showing competitiveness and consistency at the controls of their Mercedes AMG, which they hope to translate into results at Jarama.

In GT4 Bronze, there will again be a duel between machines from Stuttgart and Munich. Alberto de Martín and Nil Montserrat showed their competitiveness in the first race of the year with the Mercedes AMG of the NM Racing Team, but it was the BMW M4 GT4 (F82) of Autoworks Motorsport shared by Borja Hormigos and Héctor Hernández, who play at home, which won the first race, although with a great sense of timing.

Gabriela Correia will be the Portuguese representative in the division and, after some setbacks in Jerez, she will head to Jarama determined to have a smooth weekend and show her true potential. The young Portuguese, at the controls of the JC Group Racing Team's Mercedes AMG, this time operated by Veloso Motorsport, will make her debut at the demanding Madrid track, and is one of the reasons to follow her progress.

In GT4 Am there will be three brands fighting for victory: BMW, McLaren and Mercedes. Keith Gatehouse and Igor Sorokin could hardly have had a better debut in the competition, after a win and a second place in Jerez.

The Mercedes AMG duo of the NM Racing Team, who do not know any of the championship circuits, will have as rivals in Jerez the BMW of Promotion Motorsport, shared by Smörg and Javier Macías, and the McLaren 570S GT4 of McLaren Barcelona SMC Motorsport, driven by Rafael Muncharaz.

In the Touring Car category, the big novelty is RX Pro Racing, which is making its debut in Race Ready competitions. The Spanish team will enter two cars in the TCR division: a Hyundai I30 TCR for Busián Fontán and Samuel Gómez and a Peugeot 308 Racing Cup for Manuel Cañizares and Pedro Herraiz.

Monteiros Competições will also be a factor in the fight for Touring Car honours, with a nimble Ginetta G40 entered for Nuno Teixeira, who could do very well on the selective Jarama track.

In the GTC category, dedicated to non-homologation GT4s (GTX) and Porsche 911s that have participated in the German manufacturer's single-make trophies (Cup), the Ginetta and Porsche will be the protagonists.

Tockwith Motorsports will field two G55 GT4s - one for Steve Kirton and Jonathan Elsworth and one for Jemma Moore - and a G50 for Simon Moore and Tomás Pinto Abreu, guaranteeing an intense internal battle for top positions.

The British team will also have a Porsche 911 on track for Marcus Fothergill and Dave Benett, who in the Cup division will face strong opposition from Rui Miritta, in a Zuffenhausen car operated by Monteiros Competições, who won the division in both races at Jerez.

As you can see, the two races scheduled at the Spanish track promise plenty of fights and high levels of adrenaline, but there are plenty of reasons to be interested in the Jarama Classic, the event that includes the second round of Supercars Jarama RACE.
