FCP Euro Motorsports - Mercedes-AMG GT4 First Test Day & Shakedown
The 2021 motorsports season is quickly approaching for the FCP Euro Motorsports crew. At the beginning of 2021, we said goodbye to our championship-winning VW GTI TCRs and said hello to the next step in our motorsport career - our Mercedes-AMG GT4 race cars that we will be campaigning in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. Before heading to our first IMSA race at Mid Ohio, the team needs to make sure the cars are in working order and can handle the multi hour-long races featured in the Michelin Pilot Challenge. This weekend was dedicated just to that - we took both of our Mercedes AMG GT4's down to New Jersey Motorsports Park to give them a proper shakedown and to get the crew comfortable working on the cars. From taking tire temps & pressures, to sway bar adjustments - here is an inside look at what went down for our first test day of 2021.
Why Start A Race Team?
Yes, FCP Euro sells European Car Parts online, but this isn't your average parts counter. The employees are also gearheads, weekend warriors, and enthusiasts, just like its customers. To be a go-to source for European car parts, you need to be a part of the community you serve. FCP Euro is proud to have the in-house talent to be able to do well in racing and in business.
The FCP Euro Motorsports program began in 2016 with a BMW E30 we campaigned in AER (American Endurance Racing) with the goal of growing FCP Euro’s BMW catalog while having fun along the way. Fast forward to 2019 - in our 2nd year competing in the TC America series with 2 VW GTI TCRs, we were able to work hard enough to take home the Team, Driver, and Manufacturer Championship. Now, we plan to join America’s premier Motorsport series - IMSA - piloting the #11 Mercedes AMG GT4 in the Michelin Pilot Challenge against some of the best teams and drivers in the world. We welcome you to join us in this next chapter as we share our experiences and insider info with you, while (hopefully) continuing to have fun along the way. Now, let's all sit back and enjoy the world-class machine that is the Mercedes AMG GT4.
A Special Thanks To Our 2021 Partners
