The Jarama round brought us some news that could be reflected in the rest of the season, with new drivers and cars and a large crowd that cheered on the Supercars Jarama RACE races.



Team VRT has been one of the standout surprises and confirmations this year, securing sixth and seventh places in Jerez and two second-place finishes in Jarama.

Salvador Tineo and Luis González, driving a Mercedes AMG GT4 for the Spanish team, are currently in second place in the GT4 category with 58 points, just two points behind the leader. They hold the same position in the GT4 Pro division with 62 points, trailing the leaders by four points.

Team VRT also has a second Mercedes AMG GT4, which was on the track at Jarama for a few VIP Laps, demonstrating the team's competitive edge.


It's traditional for the Circuito de Madrid Jarama - RACE to have its stands full for the Jarama Classic, where Supercars Endurance series have been present in recent years.

Despite the very hot weather throughout the weekend of the Madrid event, many fans visited the paddock to take part in the activities on offer, which included simulators, a karting track, inflatables and interactive games for the youngsters, as well as various activities created by BMW España and NAPA.

The grandstands were filled, even those without a roof, and it wasn't unusual to see beach hats shading the seats of their owners, while it was possible to hear the reaction of the

public over the sound of the engines in the hottest moments.

By the end of the weekend, more than twenty thousand people had flocked to the Circuito de Madrid Jarama - RACE, where the second round of the Supercars Jarama RACE was the main event.



Portuguese youngster Henrique Cruz was a last-minute surprise at the wheel of a Tockwith Motorsports Ginetta G55 entered in the GTX division, which he shared with Jemma Moore.


 The driver from Leiria, who was part of the FPAK Junior Team last year, made his debut at the controls of the agile and performant English car and showed a good adaptation, as evidenced by the results, having won his division in both races of the weekend, securing ninth place overall in the first and sixth in the second.


Henrique Cruz enjoyed the experience and won't rule out driving the Ginetta G55 again, provided the conditions are right: "I hope more opportunities like this come along, because if they do, I'll take them tooth and nail”.



Spanish duo Pedro Herraiz and Samuel Gomez made their Supercars debut at the Jarama race and showed great friendliness and enthusiasm right from the start.


The RX Pro Racing Hyundai i30 TCR pair showed a very high level of competition, winning the Touring Car category and going head-to-head with some GTCs and GT4s, having finished eighth overall in the first race of the weekend.


Both Pedro Herraiz and Samuel Gomez were very pleased with their participation in Supercars Jarama RACE and are not ruling out a return this year. However, they see Iberian Supercars as a strong possibility for 2025. "This year we don't know if we'll do more races, but it's a championship we'll consider for the future", said Pedro Herraiz during the press conference for the second race in Jarama.



Filipe Matias was another driver who made his debut in Supercars and showed great satisfaction with the whole weekend in Jarama.


The Portuguese driver gradually adapted to the Monteiros Competições-run Ginetta G40, and his times were a reflection of this, having improved his best lap record in the race by two seconds from the first to the second. Filipe Matias was very pleased with the professional atmosphere in the series and was enthusiastic about the small English car's handling. He doesn’t rule out returning later this year.


"The most important thing was the experience with the car, something similar to the Lotus Elan I've raced in other championships. It's a very interesting car, especially on a track with these characteristics. This is a very competitive championship, I see teams with very strong paces. It's very professional and I really enjoyed seeing that image and seeing the top drivers fighting for second, every meter, and that's what competition is all about", the Ginetta driver said enthusiastically after the second race of the weekend.
