Chris Froggatt is delighted at the success the team enjoyed in 2020 and is looking forward to the new season.
“Despite the delays and disruption to last season, the team did a fantastic job and we were thrilled to come away with the Pro-Am trophies,” said Froggatt. “This year is all about building on that momentum and defending our title – I can’t wait to get back out on track.
“Alongside our established endurance trio of Eddie Cheever, Jonathan Hui and myself. I’m looking forward to welcoming our new teammate Giorgio Roda. he has much experience of the 488 GT3 following last year’s Italian GT Championship and I think we will be a formidable duo fighting for the Pro-Am title.”
