The popular Rossoverde team made a welcome return to UK competition with its entry into the GB4 Championship. The team’s existence dates back to 1972, starting out in Formula Ford 1600, and then branching off into sports car racing with the Ferrari Challenge.

Rossoverde were front-runners of the British GT Championship across the last two decades, with multiple race wins courtesy of the iconic pairing of team owner Hector Lester and the late Allan Simonsen. Other previous drivers for the team include Eddie Irvine, Gordon Shedden and Boyzone star Shane Lynch. 

“We are excited by the opportunity to be back in the British GT Paddock. As a company, Rossoverde Racing recognises the GB4 Championship, which runs alongside British GT and critically GB3, as key series that will promote and encourage talent to progress towards FIA F3 and F2.”
