Jordan Love continues championship challenge in Valencia

Mercedes-AMG Junior Driver, Jordan Love, returns to racing action in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup as he looks to continue his Silver Cup title challenge at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia for round four of the season.

Jordan will be joined in the #77 Haupt Racing Team Mercedes-AMG GT3 by Alain Valente, who showed well as a last-minute call-up for the German round in place of Frank Bird.

The pair will be looking to continue the winning form from the previous round at Hockeneim, where Jordan secured a class pole position and converted this into a fantastic race win in the opening race of the weekend, before following this up with a hard fought second place in the final race. These brilliant results from Hockenheim now see Jordan leading the Silver Cup standings by eight points with two rounds remaining. Jordan and the team travels to Circuit Ricardo Tormo, which will welcome a 40-car grid to contest a pair of one-hour races. The 4km track on Spain's Mediterranean coast makes its third appearance on the calendar after debuting in 2021 and is a firm favourite amongst the drivers for its blend of low and high speed corners which provide a unique challenge. Speaking ahead of the upcoming weekend in Valencia, Jordan said: "Last time out in Hockenheim was a fantastic one for the team, it was a difficult one under the circumstances but Alain did a brilliant job to step in and secure the results we were after. It'll be my first time racing at Valencia, but I am up for the challenge! We have the momentum firmly in our hands so I'll be pushing hard to be back at the front once more."

The action begins early on Friday, with free practice and pre-qualifying, before Saturday sees qualifying getting underway at 09:00 (local time) followed by race one at 14:00. Sunday follows the same format once more with qualifying at 09:00 followed by the second race at 14:00. Live coverage and timing across the weekend can be found on the GT World Challenge website.
