Second season beckons for Richard Gilbert

Following his very first year of racing, Richard Gilbert has confirmed a second season in the VW Racing Cup. He will join the recently established JM Racing team for an assault on this year’s championship and vows to bring his experience from 2019 onto the grid in 2020.

“I have to admit that my very first season of racing was quite a learning curve. I took on board of lot of information and therefore, I intend to put the knowledge I gained and the experience I now have of the circuits to good use this season.

“Bearing in mind the strength of competition and how close the racing was, I was pleased to finish just outside the top ten on a number of occasions. I really enjoyed my inaugural year, not just out there on the track, but in the paddock too, as the camaraderie between the teams and drivers in this series makes it a great place to be.”

Richard will drive a Golf Mk7 this season and embarks on a series of tests between mid-March and the opening round at Silverstone on the weekend of 18th & 19th April.
