Optimum Motorsport confirms Bronze Cup Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Endurance trio

Read time:

Optimum Motorsport heads into its third consecutive Endurance Cup campaign in the highly competitive Fantatec GT World Challenge Europe with McLaren.

As the saying goes, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the case for Optimum’s #27 trio of Mark Radcliffe, Ollie Millroy, and Rob Bell – who’ve confirmed a second endurance series together following their success in the Middle East across the winter.

The trio claimed two podiums whilst contesting in the 2023/24 Asian Le Mans Series, adding to what was an already successful run after claiming class honours at SRO’s Lenovo Gulf 12 Hours in December.

Whilst Mark is set to make his Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe debut at the series’ first round at Circuit Paul Ricard, France next month his co-drivers; Rob and Ollie need little introduction. Both Brits have the series’ Endurance accolade to their name, with Rob achieving this feat in the marque’s 650S GT3 back in 2016 under the Blancpain banner and Ollie’s more recently in 2022, claiming the inaugural Gold Cup Endurance title in Optimum Motorsport-run Inception Racing’s 720S.

“It’s great to be back in Fanatec GT World Challenge, it’s a championship that I know really well, so I’m looking forward to tackling some of the best tracks in Europe,” said Rob.

“Mark, Ollie and I had a great run over the winter, collecting podiums and race wins, so it’s great to continue the partnership with them in a car that we all know so well,” he later added.

For 2024, Optimum’s #27 McLaren 720S GT3 Evo enters the fiercely competitive Bronze Cup category, competing in the endurance rounds of Europe’s most popular GT racing series. The action is already underway in the South of France with the two-day Prologue in Le Castellet, where the championship returns for the three-hour season opener on April 7th.
