EBC-adorned BMW M240i race car will hit various international race tracks in Spain and Portugal
The Spain-based Autoworks Motorsport team has achieved huge successes in the last two years as it competed in the Spanish Endurance Championship – securing the overall class win in 2021 with its RP-X™-equipped Mini Challenge, and again scoring highly in 2022 with its BMW M240i race car which also sported RP-X™ brake pads.
For 2023, drivers Héctor Hernández and Borja Hormigos have set their sights on the Iberian Supercars Endurance race series, in the all-new TC category.
With the team’s main sponsor continuing to be EBC Brakes Spain, it’s unsurprising to hear that they’ll rely once more on EBC Brakes Racing’s RP-X™ motorsport brake pad as they compete in their 340bhp BMW.
“We are very excited to continue growing step-by-step as athletes, and this year to be able to compete together in the prestigious Iberian Supercars Endurance. It will be quite a challenge for the team to participate in this championship, which is being held on some circuits that we don’t know, although we are very clear that the premise is still to continue learning and improving, but without forgetting that our performance must be in-line with the Iberian and European dimension of the framework of this competition,” said Héctor and Borja.
The Iberian Supercars Endurance is the peninsula reference circuit championship, which combines cars from the GT4 and TCR categories. Its calendar includes five events, which visit emblematic racetracks in Spain and Portugal such as Jarama, Jerez, Portimao and Estoril, not to mention Vila Real – the only urban circuit in the Iberian Peninsula. The format is two 15-minute qualifying sessions and two 45-minute races, with mandatory pit stops for driver changes.
The Iberian Supercars Endurance season will begin on 6-7 May at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, and this and all the races will be broadcast on television (Portuguese channel Abola TV), as well as via streaming on YouTube.
