Teo Martín Motorsport and GT Open double runner-up Fran Rueda will continue their successful relationship for the third year in a row and they will fight again for the International GT Open title. The 22-year-old from Málaga, recently announced by McLaren Automotive as a member of the new McLaren Young Professional Programme, will work again alongside the Guatemalan driver Andrés Saravia, a driver with whom he achieved the 2018 International GT Open vice-championship with 3 wins, 6 podiums and 3 Pole Positions.
The goal for them is none other than to fight again for the title as they did last season, and as Rueda did in 2017 too (finishing a runner-up, with 2 wins), and this time at the wheel of the new McLaren 720S GT3 with his other team mates: Marcelo Hahn-Allam Khodair, Henrique Chaves and a driver to be announced soon.
Fran Rueda commented: "I am very happy to compete again in the GT Open with Teo Martin Motorsport. We have fought for the championship until the last race these last two seasons and I fully trust that this year we will fight for the championship until the end again. It will be a very competitive grid, so we'll have to do a perfect job to be champions, and this is the main objective. I am very grateful to McLaren Automotive and the team for this new opportunity and I hope to give them many victories in compensation".
Teo Martín, Team Owner, added:"Fran has helped us a lot in recent years to always fight for victories and titles and that's why I am especially excited to extend our relationship with this exciting project alongside McLaren Automotive. The British brand has recognized his talent including him in one of their GT programs, so that's a big reward for years of effort. A second season with Rueda-Saravia pair is not coincidence; They worked very well from the beginning last season and I am sure that they will do it again with the McLaren 720S GT3 to continue giving us joys from the first race".
In the meantime, the livery of the McLarens 720S for 2019 has been revealed during the TV show “Sobre Ruedas”.
