Vita4One joins largest grid of the year so far

16 October 2014

One more last-minute entry for the Belgian round of the 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series has brought the total number of cars for the Zolder event to 25, further increasing the already largest starting grid of the year so far. 2010 FIA GT1 World Champion and three-times FIA GT Champion Michael Bartels will join his 2012 FIA GT1 team-mate, Dutchman Yelmer Buurman, behind the wheel of the Vita4One Racing Team BMW Z4.

Both Buurman and Bartels have plenty of experience in GT racing and the Belgian track of Zolder in particular, so count on them to make an impression on the Blancpain Sprint Series’ regulars. It might be Vita4One Racing’s first outing in the 2014 Blancpain GT Series, but the German squad has a definite pedigree in Series organised by SRO Motorsports Group, with six titles in FIA GT and GT1 combined, as well as three wins in the Total 24 Hours of Spa.
