World –famous GT team Kessel Racing is back to the International GT Open for the Silverstone round, where it will enter a Ferrari 488 GT3 for local heroes John Hartshorne and Oliver Hancock.
The experienced British duo currently contests the Michelin LeMans Cup with this machine.
Switzerland’s Kessel Racing, founded by Loris Kessel and now run by his son Ronnie, has acquired great reputation from competing and winning in many continents. It has been a very strong force in the GT Open, having conquered 6 overall wins and the GTS double title (Drivers and Teams) in three consecutive years (2010-12) after a first GTS Drivers’ crown in 2009.
Sporting Director Tiziana Borghi commented: “The GT Open has played a key role in the Kessel Racing’s history and growth and we have a very special bond with it. We are absolutely delighted to take any opportunity to come back to it!”
