Ginetta Factory Driver Mike Simpson To Contest Barcelona 24hrs

25th July 2018 • Ruth Harrison-Davies

Ginetta Factory Driver Mike Simpson will join the Endurance Team Romania crew as they take on the Barcelona 24h over the 8/9 September.

Endurance Team Romania are already regulars in the 24h Series, and their entry into the Barcelona 24h will be their second in as many years. This time though, they arrive with a secret weapon; their new Ginetta G55 GT4. Well, that and Ginetta Factory Driver Mike Simpson.

Mike has probably done more miles behind the wheel of a G55 GT4 than anyone else. He’s also a regular choice for customer teams when it comes to bolstering their 24-Hour race crews. Although this will be the first time Mike has tackled the Barcelona 24h, it’s an opportunity he’s relishing.

Mike Simpson, Ginetta Factory Driver; “I’m really looking forward to joining the Endurance Team Romania crew for the Barcelona 24 Hours. Its one of the few 24-hour races I’ve not yet contested but one I’ve wanted to enter for a long time. The 24hr Series events are always a fantastic weekend to be a part of, so I can’t wait to get started, and hopefully help the team get some silverware.”

Mike will join team regulars Sergiu Nicolae – who has already taken class podiums in the European GT4 Series - and Fabrizio Broggi, Romanian Touring Car and Endurance champion.
