Global Racing Service makes first Eurocup and F4 signings

by Ida Wood

Catalan team Global Racing Service, formed last year using?assets previously belonging to KDC Racing, has signed the first drivers for its Formula Renault Eurocup and Spanish Formula 4 programmes.

Xavier Lloveras is the first driver aligned to its Eurocup squad, and has one 13th place finish from the equivalent of a season in the championship over the last two years.

The 18-year-old Spaniard graduated to cars from the KF-Junior class of karting in 2016, finishing fourth in Spanish F4 with one win. He made a cameo Euroformula Open appearance before heading to the Eurocup, but has since returned to F4 in Russia and Spain, and become a race-winner in GT4 racing.

Lloveras also gave GRS its on-track debut in the 2018 Spanish F4 season finale, where he took a pole and two podiums.

GRS missed the first pre-season Eurocup test, with the second starting at Paul Ricard tomorrow (Friday).

Another Eurocup regular making a return is Frank Bird, who will be switching to Arden for the start of his third full season in the series. The 19-year-old Briton has six points to his name, having previously driven for Fortec Motorsports and Tech 1 Racing.

Belen Garcia, one of Spain’s top female karters, will make her single-seater debut in GRS’s Spanish F4 squad, and has already been testing at Ricardo Tormo at Paul Ricard.

MP Motorsport has also added two drivers to its Spanish F4 line-up: championship returnee Rafael Villanueva and Dutch karting graduate Nicolas Baert.
