KCMG ready to tackle its final 24-hour race of 2019 at Spa

KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) heads to Belgium for the third round of the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge, the fourth and final 24-hour race it will take part in this year, the Total 24 Hours of Spa (25-28 July).

Having shown podium potential at the two prior rounds, the Bathurst 12 Hours and California 8 Hours, KCMG’s pair of Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 cars are ready for action once again after being utilised in VLN and the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

On board the #18 machine, 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours LMP2 winner Oliver Jarvis knows the historic venue well, having taken victory there in the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship. He has since sampled the circuit in GT3 machinery when he took part in the 2017 24-hour event.

After running strong in KCMG’s Nürburgring 24 Hours assault in June, Edoardo Liberati returns to Intercontinental GT Challenge, as does Alexandre Imperatori.

In the #35 car 2015 Bathurst 12 Hours winner Katsumasa Chiyo is back alongside double Super GT and Formula Nippon champion Tsugio Matsuda.

Also returning from KCMG’s Nürburgring programme, Australian Joshua Burdon is fighting fit after his heavy Nordschleife collision, where he was hit by another car during a Code 60. Having demonstrated podium potential during the season, he and his team-mates are eager to secure a deserved rostrum. 

Practice will begin on Thursday 25 July at 11:10 local time with qualifying starting at 20:00, culminating in a Friday Super Pole shoot-out at 19:05. Lights out for the twice-around-the-clock race is at 16:30 on Saturday.
