Jenson Team Rocket RJN has confirmed that it will enter a McLaren 720S GT3 into the GT World Challenge Europe for the 2020 season. The team will take on the full five-date Endurance Cup calendar including one round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, the 24 Hours of Spa.
“It is great to have Jenson Team Rocket RJN join the Customer Racing family for 2020,” said Ian Morgan, director of motorsport at McLaren Automotive. “The GT World Challenge Europe offers probably the biggest challenge in GT3 racing and the 720S GT3 kicked off the year with a strong result on its Bathurst 12 Hour debut last weekend.”
Established by former Formula 1 driver Jenson Button, Jenson Team Rocket RJN debuted in the GT World Challenge Europe and earned a 4th-place finish in the Silver Cup at the Total 24 Hours of Spa.
“The GT World Challenge Europe grid gets stronger and stronger every year, and the racing is amongst the best in the world,” added Button. “We go into the season full of confidence, with a team boasting huge experience and a car that has already proved itself as a race winner.”
