The Spaniard of Kurdish ancestry will contest the curtain raiser event of the 2022 GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup season this weekend. Tutumlu, who has never raced at Brands Hatch before, will be sharing the GSM Novamarine-run Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo with Austrian Gerhard Tweraser.
Isaac Tutumlu will head to Brands Hatch as the Kent-based racing circuit hosts the season opener for the 2022 GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup season. Tutumlu will defend the colors of the Kurdistan Racing Team by Tigris at the highest GT international level driving a GSM Novamarine-entered Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo alongside Austrian driver Gerhard Tweraser. Tutumlu and Tweraser will be fighting for Silver Cup honors in an extremely competitive 26-car field, which includes world-class drivers such as Luca Ghiotto, Raffaele Marciello, Dries Vanthoor, Christian Klien or former Moto GP rider Valentino Rossi.
“We are delighted to finally kick the 2022 campaign off as it was a long wait until now. It is a pleasure to be present with Kurdistan Racing Team by Tigris in the 2022 GT World Challenge Sprint Cup season. We know our rivals will be extremely tough to beat with GT3 cars from brands such as Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren and Lamborghini of course”, explains Tutumlu. The Spaniard of Kurdish ancestry underlines that “Brands Hatch will be a challenging first round. The overall level in the series is very high and let’s not forget that our team GSM Novamarine will be making its debut with GT3 machinery. Brands Hatch is completely new to me and this weekend is my very first outing there. So, we need to stay calm and improve little by little. Definitely, Brands Hatch is a sort of dress rehearsal for us but we will push hard to achieve the best possible result in the Silver Cup class. We know how competitive we can be.”
