Festive Finale to GT4 2019 season
From the racetrack to the Las Vegas Strip: SRO Motorsports Group invited guests to an exclusive end-of-season party on October 20th in the legendary Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. In the course of a gala dinner in the glam and glitter of “Sin City” the champion drivers were given a special award: they were presented with exclusive Certina watches – exceptionally reliable and sporty timekeepers that, like the GT4 drivers themselves, never shy away from a challenge.
Earlier in the season, on October 13, 2019, the competitors in the French FFSA GT Championship had rolled up to the starting line with nerves on edge, ready for some high-speed thrills. The drivers and their powerful race cars gave their all at the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France, securing their final places in the overall rankings.
The most exciting German event in the GT4 European Series had already reached its grand finale last month at the famous/infamous Nürburgring. The decisive final race in the Silver Cup was held on September 1, 2019; Simon Knap and Alec Udell from the MDM Motorsport Team took the title in their BMW. They joined the ranks of this year's victorious drivers: Luci Trefz and Marcus Paverud (Pro-Am), Clément Seyler and Pascal Bachmann (Am) and the team champion, Leipert Motorsport.
Once again Certina was on hand at both GT4 series to guarantee ultimate precision. Since 2017, the Swiss watchmaking brand has been a partner of the race promoter SRO Motorsports Group, with a sincere commitment to back both the GT4 European Series and the FFSA GT Championship. With this commitment the ultra-reliable watch brand continues its long-standing tradition in support of motor sports.
