KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) are set to tackle the full Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (NLS) in 2023, with Josh Burdon, Edoardo Liberati and Martin Rump driving a Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO in the SP10 class. The campaign will also feature a fifth visit to the legendary Nürburgring 24 Hours in May.
2023 will be the first time the Hong Kong-based team competes at each round of the championship, having previously entered selected rounds in preparation for the N24. This programme also marks the European debut of the Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO.
Both Australian Burdon and Italian Liberati have raced for KCMG on the Nürburgring in recent years, with Estonian racer Rump previously competing for the squad at the 2015-16 Asian Le Mans Series and 2017 Blancpain GT Series Asia.
The season starts on 17-18 March, with pre-season testing scheduled for this weekend (11-12 March).
“I feel both excited and privileged to be taking on this new chapter with KCMG and TOYOTA GAZOO Racing at the Nordschleife. It’s my fourth season with the team, something I’m very proud of. Looking forward to getting started!”
“I’m thrilled to be back at the Green Hell with KCMG for this new adventure with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing. I can’t wait to drive the GR Supra GT4 EVO and fight in the SP10 class with Josh and Martin. Thanks again to the team for their trust in me.”
“I’m delighted to return to KCMG for the 2023 season. We worked together in Asia in the past and I have some wonderful memories racing with the team. Now it’s time for us to take on the Green Hell and I’m looking forward to racing alongside my two teammates Edo and Josh. I’m can’t wait to get going!”
MATT HOWSON TEAM MANAGER
“KCMG is thrilled to be returning to the Nordschleife, this time for our first full NLS season, alongside the N24 and Qualifying races. KCMG and TOYOTA GAZOO Racing have a long history together in Japan, so competing with the Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO is an exciting new chapter for the squad in Europe. We have three excellent drivers in Edo, Martin and Josh and the team is as strong as ever, so we’re excited for this new challenge!”
PAUL IP KCMG FOUNDER
“KCMG and TOYOTA GAZOO Racing have a long history of competing together in Asia, so I’m delighted to see the partnership extend to Europe for the 2023 NLS campaign. The team has plenty of experience racing on the Nürburgring, so we have the potential to be very competitive. We’re very happy with our driver line-up, Edo and Josh have raced with us on the Nordschleife before, and we know what Martin is capable of. I’m looking forward to following the progress and hopefully celebrating plenty of success!”
