Sky Tempesta Racing will make a welcome return to the GT World Challenge Europe series for 2021, contesting both the Endurance Cup and Sprint Cup with the aim of defending its hard-earned Pro-Am Cup titles secured during the disrupted 2020 season.
Drivers Chris Froggatt (GBR), Edward Cheever III (ITA) and Jonathan Hui (HKG) will return to contest the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup, while Froggatt will be joined by new team-mate Giorgio Roda (ITA) to take on the 2021 Sprint Cup. Roda is welcomed to the team after winning the 2020 Italian GT Endurance Championship, and also has the 2018 European Le Mans Series LMGTE and 2014 GT Open GTS Championship titles to his name.
For the world-renowned and highly-challenging Total 24 Hours of Spa, the team again will be joined by former F1 driver Giancarlo Fisichella. Sky Tempesta Racing will field the #93 Ferrari 488 GT3 in its eye-catching spectrum livery.
Last season the team claimed five class victories and eight podium finishes in the Sprint Cup, including a double win at Zandvoort, Netherlands. Three Pro-Am podium finishes were achieved in the Endurance Cup, including second-in-class at the Total 24 Hours of Spa. The culmination of results secured Sky Tempesta Racing the Pro-Am Teams’ title, while Froggatt and Cheever secured the Pro-Am Drivers’ title.
The first round of the 2021 season takes place at Autodromo di Monza, Italy, on 16-18 April, with a three-hour GT World Challenge Endurance Cup race.
